Your business can benefit from innovations derived from research within the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
Our research has led to the production of several successful spin-out companies, reaping benefits for the Department and external businesses alike. Your organisation could be next to take advantage of our expertise.
Spin-out companies we are associated with include:
Advanced Hall Sensors (AHS) was formed following work by Professor Mohamed Missous on the Quantum Hall Effect and its exploitation in a range of ultra high sensitive magnetic sensors that exhibit unique characteristics.
Arago Technology was incorporated in early 2010 following several years of joint research and development by EPL Composites Solutions and a team from the National Grid high voltage laboratories at The University of Manchester. Research has centred on the creation of an electrically-insulating transmission tower cross-arm.
A North West success story, CableSense originated from a business based in Morecambe, Lancashire. In collaboration with the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and the University of Lancaster, CableSense has developed an innovative product to manage enterprise-wide structured cabling systems.
