What we do

The world works better with us

The disciplines of Electrical, Electronic and Mechatronic Engineering make a vast impact on the way we live our lives and it is done so well that we don’t notice it.  

We expect the lights to go on when we flick a switch; we use social media without thinking about the infrastructure that makes it possible; we listen to music from many different media without thinking of the way that it is recorded, stored, reproduced; harmful emissions are being reduced because energy is being used more efficiently – but we don’t think about how this is achieved…

The information on these web pages is intended to introduce some of the ways in which our subject continues to change the way we live; it doesn’t happen on its own - it’s the actions of students like ours that make it possible.
