In 2008, our research undertaken was independently ranked as the best in Scotland.
A joint submission was made by the University and the Edinburgh College of Art to the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2008 and the results showed the joint venture to be leading Scotland in research in architecture, landscape architecture and the built environment.
Within UK architecture and landscape architecture, our submission was ranked second in terms of volume of the highest quality research.
We received a score of 70% overall in the 4* and 3* categories, indicating outstanding or excellent international quality and impact across research environment, esteem and published outputs.
A combination of journal articles, books, designs and other creative works were assessed, covering landscape architecture, digital media, and architectural design, history, and technology.
