logo-hr-excellenceUNOTT is ranked by Newsweek in the world’s Top 75 universities. UNOTT has more than 35000 students and 7000 staff members. UNOTT is ranked 74th in the 2014 Times Higher Education World University Ranking for Engineering and Technology.

The Nottingham Transportation Engineering Centre (NTEC) comprises 10 academic staff, 13 laboratory staff, 3 clerical staff and ~50 researchers. Their three-storey laboratory provides globally leading technical facilities for testing bound & unbound pavement materials and other rail track research activities. NTEC also houses the Centre for Risk and Reliability Engineering with expertise in developing modelling techniques to improve the design and operation of engineering systems to reduce the frequency and consequences of failure.
Lead partner in FP7 Marie Curie SUP&R ITN (Sustainable Pavement & Railway Initial Training Network), CEDR AllBack2Pave project.

FP SILVIA (Silent Roads), VERT and VERTEC (Vehicle, Road, Tyre and Electronic Control System Interaction in Potentially Dangerous Driving Conditions), FP7 Re-Road (develop knowledge and innovative technologies for enhanced end of life strategies of asphalt pavements) & ASSET (Integrated System Solution for Safety – Advanced Safety and Driver Support for Essential Road Transport) projects, FP7 Marie Curie ITN TEAM (Training in European Asset Management). Technical advice to Netherlands DWW on experimental road sections surveys and to Confederation of European Road Directors on sustainability indicators.
