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: microwave, semiconductor, and terahertz technologies, bio-nano and quantum technologies; robotics; ultrasound and medical imaging; energy-efficient green communications networks; wireless and mobile communications; power electronic systems; and renewable energy.

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.

The School is home to a large community of committed and passionate research staff and students, accessing a range of facilities and working within dedicated research laboratories. 
 

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.

Research degrees

We are interested in the brightest and the best students from anywhere in the world to join our research teams. 

We have a number of funded PhD projects and scholarship opportunities available across electronic and electrical engineering.
