Glasgow: a vibrant European cultural city

Glasgow is Scotland's largest city and one of the liveliest and most stylish cities in the UK (recognised by Lonely Planet as one of the top 10 cities to visit in the world).

Glasgow is also regenerating at an amazing pace making it a "living laboratory" on sustainability, civil engineering, and urban renewal. Members of the department are contributing to the Clyde Waterfront Regeneration (Scotland's single most significant urban renewal project and development opportunity which is transforming 20km of the river Clyde from Glasgow city centre).
