The School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EEECS) aims to enhance the way we use technology in communication, health services, data security and many other related areas.
Pioneering research is the lifeblood of the school and is evidenced by the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), in which over 80% of the school's research was judged to be internationally excellent or world leading.
Within the School we have a number of specialist research centres including a Global Research Institute, specialising in Cyber Security, Wireless and Data Science, the Institute of Electronics, Communications and Information Technology (ECIT) and the Centre for Intelligent and Autonomous Manufacturing Systems.
The School currently has over 100 PhD students from 40 countries worldwide, and therefore enjoys the many benefits that this brings to its research community. Many PhD studentships attract scholarships and top-up supplements. Both the MPhil and PhD programmes provide our students with the opportunity to acquire an extensive training in research techniques.
SoCaM is dedicated to the design of advanced, integrated, high-speed wireless and couples activities in High Frequency Electronics, System-on-Chip, Signals and Systems and Digital Signal Processing, and for Gigabit/sec wireless.
Electrical & Electronic Engineering highlights:
•ECIT brings together, in one building, internationally recognised research groups specialising in key areas of advanced digital and communications technology.
•CSIT brings together research specialists in complementary fields such as data security, network security systems, wireless-enabled security systems, intelligent surveillance systems; and serves as the national point of reference for knowledge transfer in these areas.
•Electric Power and Energy Systems research is focused on problems related to distributed sources of energy and their integration into power networks. The cluster is a member of the IET Power Academy and is a major collaborator on all-island energy research.
