Research and innovation
Founded in 1898, the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering has over 100 years of research history, leading to outstanding impact from our research - including pioneering work on: switched-reluctance drives; microwave network analysers; filters and semiconductor devices; terahertz technology, including quantum cascade lasers; bio-sensors; and energy-efficient communications networks.
We’re exceptionally proud that according to the Research Excellence Framework 2014, 100% of our research outputs are ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’. We attract grants from UK Research Councils, government departments, the European Union and many industrial sources.
Bragg Centre for Materials Research
The Bragg Centre for Materials Research will enable the discovery, creation, characterisation and exploitation of materials engineered at the atomic level.
The Centre acts as a focus for research across campus, bringing together the University’s strengths in III-V semiconductors, optoelectronics, and high frequency devices, crystallisation and materials chemistry, functional oxides and glasses, ferroelectric, magnetic and spintronic materials, bionanotechnology, soft condensed matter systems, and functional surfaces and corrosion.
It is supported by our £96million investment in engineering and physical sciences, the Sir William Henry Bragg building.
We have a strong track record of collaborations with academic institutions and major international electronics and communication companies around the world. We also work extensively with other schools across the University of Leeds, including Physics and Astronomy, Chemistry, Biology, Medicine, Chemical and Process Engineering, Computing and Mechanical Engineering.
