The School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science 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 REF Results (2014), in which 100 per cent of the impact of research in the School was judged to be world leading or internationally excellent. Electrical and Electronic Engineering was also ranked among the top 10 in the UK, and placed 5th for the percentage of research of the highest quality.
This strong, research-led ethos is reflected in its involvement in a number of major research centres, including:
- The Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT), a £30m UK Knowledge Centre
- The Institute of Electronics, Communications and Information Technology (ECIT), a new world-class centre specializing in key areas of advanced digital and communications technology, with a unique focus on blue skies, strategic and industrial research projects.
Undertaking a PhD is a highly rewarding experience and here at SEEECS you will have the opportunity to work with some of the most passionate researchers in their field. The School currently has over 130 PhD students from 40 countries worldwide, and therefore enjoys the many benefits that this brings to its research community.
