The applied focus of this course is supported by contemporary, well-equipped laboratory facilities. Our environmental chamber is the largest facility of its kind in Scotland, and we can replicate the high-altitude conditions of base camp Everest or some of the hottest and most humid countries in the world – very topical right now amidst our climate crisis.
