The coverage of most branches of engineering within a single large School makes it easy to pursue interdisciplinary research. Although there are no interim examinations, students are expected to complete a module in Research Methods. Submission of regular progress reports is required, monitored using progress panels established for each student. Students are encouraged to give seminars, publish their findings and to undertake laboratory demonstrating work.

Research Interests

Overarching research themes:

Three cross-cutting research themes - Energy, Biomedical Engineering and Sustainable Cities - facilitate multidisciplinary research across research groups.

Research Groups (specialisms):

Communications, Energy Conversion, Electrical Power, Fluid Dynamics, Geotechnics and Tunnelling, Thermofluids, Precision Mechanics, Process and Chemical Engineering, Sensors and Devices, Structures and Materials, Civil Engineering and Systems Modelling.
