Research areas

The research within the Group covers a very wide range, from BSc/MEng projects, five month MSc dissertation projects, PhD and EngD projects, to large team research projects involving postdoctoral researchers and research associates.

The size of the research portfolio varies from year to year, but currently the group research portfolio amounts to more than £1M of industrial and public research funding, with a 50% split between fundamental research and collaborative industrial research.

The equal split between applications-led and theory-led research is quite deliberate and reflects the group's aim to perform research at a fundamental 'blue sky' level as well as developing innovative solutions to challenging practical problems.
