Organisation profile


The Department has an established record of research excellence, with an international reputation for pioneering work across the broad spectrum of electronic and electrical engineering. Applied engineering innovation is core to the department's research ethos and is a critical part of its culture.

Research activities are driven by six strategically focused research groups, which reflect the scale, diversity and vision of the Department and underpin its teaching programmes. 

  • Centre for Intelligent Dynamic Communications.
  • Centre for Excellence in Signal & Image Processing.
  • Institute for Energy & Environment
  • Centre for Microsystems & Photonics.
  • Industrial Control Centre.
  • Centre for Ultrasonic Engineering.

The Department is also home to several unique and world-leading research facilities, including the British Energy Advanced Diagnostics Centre and the UK’s only EPSRC Doctoral Training Centre in Wind Energy Systems, specifically created to enable the UK meet its ambitious renewable energy targets.

The Department is supported by a variety of agencies and research centres worldwide, and its success in forming strong partnerships with Industry, has resulted in a prestigious and extensive scholarship programme.

With an enviable record of enterprise, entrepreneurship and research commercialisation, we excel at knowledge exchange and technology transfer, developing and integrating novel cutting edge technologies across a range of sectors in the local and global economies.

Company successes include Diagnostic Monitoring Systems (DMS), Elimpus Ltd and Industrial Systems and Control (ISC) Ltd.

With 60 academic staff and 250 researchers from over 20 countries worldwide, the Department has a vibrant international Graduate School.  Research-led with state-of-the-art equipment and resources, the School is a dynamic and supportive environment for advanced study.
