Overarching research themes

Our organisational structure connects our research with our study programmes to ensure quality research-led teaching. We have four disciplines shaping our framework, they are:

  • Civil and Environmental;
  • Electrical and Electronic;
  • Mechanical and Process;
  • Systems and Information.

Discipline streams

Our Civil and Environmental researchers work on a broad range of issues underpinning civil engineering. Combining modelling with practical experimentation, they tackle issues such as:

  • sustainable housing;
  • dynamic loading of structures;
  • earthquake destabilisation of land;
  • and pollution of waterways.

Key specialisms: Ground Engineering, Structural Engineering and Water.

The Electrical and Electronic Engineering research group cover a range of Power, sustainability and improved communications that are at the heart of our Electrical and Electronic stream. Key areas of research include:

  • artificial olfaction (or 'electronic nose');
  • electrical energy conversion;
  • grid-scale energy storage;
  • nanoscale communications;
  • and quantum devices.

Key specialisms: Communications, Electrical Power and Sensors and Devices.

Our Mechanical and Process Engineering research group are our largest and most diverse stream, their activities include:

  • fluid mechanics, fire and explosion hazards, chemical engineering;
  • precision and surfaces;
  • 3D printing;
  • and thermal energy technology.

Key specialisms: Fluids and Modelling, Measurement and Machines, Reaction and Materials Engineering, Sustainable Thermal Energy Technologies.

The Systems and Information research group brings together expertise in:

  • nonlinear and stochastic systems;
  • modelling of human activity;
  • neural engineering;
  • telemedicine;
  • imaging;
  • and synthetic biology.

Much of the research undertaken is around health and security and the nature of the work means that many labs are cross-group. Key specialisms: Biomedical and Biological Systems, Information Engineering and Systems Modelling and Control
