The research structure of the School is made up of four discipline streams, with three or four groups within each stream. Staff are a member of a primary research group, but the collaborative and multi-disciplinary nature of the School enable cross-group or -stream working.
|Our Civil and Environmental researchers work on a broad range of issues underpinning civil engineering. Combining modelling with practical experimentation, they tackle issues such as: sustainable housing; dynamic loading of structures; earthquake destabilisation of land; and pollution of waterways.|
|Power, sustainability and improved communications are at the heart of our Electrical and Electronic stream. Key areas of research include: artificial olfaction (or 'electronic nose'); electrical energy conversion; grid-scale energy storage; nanoscale communications; and quantum devices.|
|Sensors and Devices|
|The largest and most diverse stream, Mechanical and Process Engineering includes: fluid mechanics; fire and explosion hazards; chemical engineering; precision and surfaces; 3D printing; and thermal energy technology.|
|Fluid Dynamics and Multiscale Modelling||Measurement and Machines|
|Reaction and Materials Engineering||Sustainable Thermal Energy Technologies|
Systems and Information brings together expertise in: nonlinear and stochastic systems; modelling of human activity; neural engineering; telemedicine; imaging; and synthetic biology. Much of the research undertaken is around health and security and the nature of the work means that many labs are cross-group.
