The University of Strathclyde is a public research university located in Glasgow, Scotland. Founded in 1796 as the Andersonian Institute, it is Glasgow’s second-oldest university, having received its royal charter in 1964 as the first technological university in the United Kingdom. Taking its name from the historic Kingdom of Strathclyde, it is Scotland’s third-largest university by number of students, with students and staff from over 100 countries.

UoS runs a Masters by Research (MRes) postgraduate research degree in Climate Change Adaptation, which aims to provide advanced study of key issues related to climate change, and particularly around how infrastructure will need to adapt.

Climate change adaptation researchers at UoS work across three main interdisciplinary centres:

  • Centre for Ground Engineering & Energy Geosciences, a large group of researchers lead a number of national and international consortia and have expertise in a wide range of disciplines, including:
    • ground engineering
    • advanced materials science & applications
    • faults & fluid flow
    • hydro-mechanical behaviour of geomaterials
    • industrial challenges
    • non intrusive geo-physical ground investigation
  • Centre for Water, Environment, Sustainability & Public Health, which undertakes fundamental and applied research to provide novel solutions to some of the most pressing environmental challenges, working both locally and internationally. Expertise includes:
    • water
    • environmental & public health
    • soil contamination, remediation and restoration
    • environmental assessment
    • waste, energy and the circular economy
    • international development
  • Centre for Intelligent Infrastructure, which is engaged in cutting-edge research covering a wide range of topics, including:
    • intelligent infrastructure systems
    • smart structures
    • advanced material

UoS also has its own climate change adaptation plan for the university.
