Summary

PhD Planning and Environmental Management provides a vibrant and nurturing research environment for those who are interested in pursuing research in urban and regional planning; future cities and data analysis; environmental planning and management; environmental impact assessment; green infrastructure, urban design and regeneration; and housing and property development.

Our planning and environmental management research focuses primarily around the making of future cities - embracing issues such as spatial analysis, urban governance and sustainability.

We aspire to create better cities by critically analysing and helping shape better policies for promoting equitable and sustainable cities for future generations.

In the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), 99% of our department's research activities were considered as internationally recognised, with an exceptionally high proportion (75%) judged to be internationally excellent or world leading.

Our research focuses on the UK, Europe and other international arena such as China and Latin America.

Staff members and research students are also active in engaging with the Manchester Urban Institute , particularly via the Spatial Policy and Analysis Laboratory and the Global Urbanism Research Group .

Postgraduate research students are regarded as an integral part of our research culture, and we recruit high-calibre students from all over the world to join our diverse, multidisciplinary, and international team.
