Areas for PhD supervision

Overarching research themes:
Our organisational structure connects our research with our study programmes to ensure quality research-led teaching. We have four disciplines shaping our framework, they are; Civil and Environmental, Electrical and Electronic, Mechanical and Process, Systems and Information.

Discipline streams

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. Key specialisms: Ground Engineering, Structural Engineering and Water.

The Electrical and Electronic Engineering research group cover a range of Power, sustainability and improved communications that 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. Key specialisms: Communications, Electrical Power and Sensors and Devices.

Our Mechanical and Process Engineering research group are our largest and most diverse stream, their activities include; fluid mechanics, fire and explosion hazards, chemical engineering; precision and surfaces; 3D printing; and thermal energy technology. Key specialisms: Fluids and Modelling, Measurement and Machines, Reaction and Materials Engineering, Sustainable Thermal Energy Technologies.

The Systems and Information research group 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. Key specialisms: Biomedical and Biological Systems, Information Engineering and Systems Modelling and Control.
