Course contentThe School has six research groups which reflect our vision of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Our research groups are as follows:
Microwave and Communication Systems (MACS)
The MACS group considers a wide range of advanced topics applicable to communications and radar; from highly mobile wireless networks, propagation, microwave and milli-metric components, through to digital signal processing, coding and signal analysis.
Control Systems (CS)
The CS group has an international reputation for its pioneering research in systems theory including the development of frequency domain design tools for multivariable systems, self-tuning and adaptive control and the use of symbolic algebra in the development of control algorithms.
Sensing, Imaging and Signal Processing (SISP)
SISP pursues collaborative and cross-disciplinary research that exploits the complementary expertise in sensing, imaging and signal processing that is brought together in the group.
Electrical Energy and Power Systems (EEPS)
The EEPS group is at the forefront of research and teaching in the field of electric power engineering in the United Kingdom and internationally with its 10 permanent academic members of staff and its 30+ researchers.
Power Conversion (PC)
The efficient conversion & control of electrical energy is a vital infrastructure technology that underpins much of what we take for granted in an industrialised country; electricity generation & distribution, land, sea & air transport, computer & communications systems, & countless industrial processes.
Microelectronics and Nanostructures (M&N)
Our research activities cover a range of topics concerned with the fundamental materials and physics issues surrounding advanced semiconductor devices, novel high speed electronic and optoelectronic devices, and advanced sensors and systems.
