The School of Engineering and Digital Arts successfully combines modern engineering and technology with the exciting new field of digital media.
This is a broad programme in advanced electronics, reflecting the latest developments in telecommunications, embedded systems, instrumentation and biometrics. Despite this considerable breadth, an extensive range of options allows students to tailor the course to suit their individual requirements. The programme enables students to develop advanced skills in various aspects of modern hardware, software and firmware engineering
The School undertakes high-quality research that has had significant national and international impact, and our spread of expertise allows us to respond rapidly to new developments. Our 31 academic staff and over 130 postgraduate students and research staff form teams providing an ideal focus to effectively support a high level of research activity. There is a thriving student population studying for postgraduate degrees in a notably friendly and supportive teaching and research environment.
We have research funding from the UK Research Councils, European research programmes, a number of industrial and commercial companies and government agencies – such as the Ministry of Defence, and many others. Our Electronic Systems Design Centre and Digital Media Hub provide training and consultancy for a wide range of companies. Many of our research projects are collaborative, and we have
well-developed links with institutions worldwide.
