The School has a broad spectrum of world-leading research activities, which are organised into six research groups.
Control Systems (CS)
The CS group is known for its pioneering research in systems theory including the development of frequency domain design tools for multi-variable systems, self-tuning and adaptive control and the use of symbolic algebra in the development of control algorithms.
The EEPS group is at the forefront of research in the field of electric power engineering in the United Kingdom and internationally, with its fourteen permanent academic members of staff and more than eighty researchers.
The research activities of the MN group 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.
The MCS 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.
Power Conversion (PC)
The PC group is concerned with the efficient conversion and control of electrical energy. This vital infrastructure technology underpins much of what we take for granted in an industrialised country: electricity generation and distribution, land, sea and air transport, computer and communications systems and countless industrial processes.
The SISP group pursues collaborative and cross-disciplinary research that exploits its complementary expertise in sensing, imaging and signal processing to build and analyse a wide range of sensor systems.
