School of engineering and physical sciences

The school, with its five Research Institutes covering the fields of engineering and applied sciences, have expert teams of supervisors and researchers with backgrounds in electronic, electrical, computer, mechanical and chemical engineering. We carried out research in a variety of topics ranging from advanced materials to electrical systems integration, developing world class solutions to meet industry needs.

The most active research institute involved in this CDT was the Research Institute of Signals, Sensors and Systems. The main research areas covered by the CDT graduates were microsystems and smart systems integration, robotics, sub-ocean systems engineering, signal and image processing, and microwave engineering. 

Our research has impact in several key areas, including Medicine and the Life Sciences, Robotics, Autonomous Systems and Transport, Manufacturing and Quality Control, Medicine and Health, Human-Computer Interaction and Communication, Wireless and Wired Communication Networks, Electronics and Microelectronics, Environmental Monitoring and Remote Sensing, Security, Surveillance and Defence.

school of mathematical and computer sciences

Our School performs ground-breaking research that develops new futures for both mathematics and computer science, and our expertise and ideas are regularly applied to benefit industry and society. Our main strengths include intelligent systems, rigorous systems, interaction, mathematical modelling, stochastic systems, as well as actuarial and financial mathematics.

Computer Science was one of the participants of this CDT, with researchers involved with software verification for safety-critical applications and techniques for optimisation, data analytics, pervasive computing and autonomous robotics.
