There is a broad range of research currently being conducted at Queen’s. It ranges from world-leading research into marine energy production, green chemistry and governance for sustainable development to research on sustainability and the built environment.
The University has set up an Institute for a Sustainable World (ISW) which aims to be a centre of excellence for research and decisive support for sustainable development research and teaching throughout Ireland. It brings together over 100 Queen’s researchers, making sustainability, broadly defined, the single biggest research theme within the University.
Sustainability Masters degrees are the largest postgraduate cluster at Queen's with 17 courses available across geography, planning and civil engineering, management and governance, and biological sciences.
