Course Summary

The research in the Department is organised around two Research Centres on Sensors and Instrumentation and Systems and Control. The Sensors and Instrumentation Centre has an established international reputation in the areas of measurement and instrumentation, sensor development, optical systems and photonics, computer vision, medical imaging and biomedical engineering. The work builds on advanced experimental and theoretical developments to meet current sensing challenges from industry and clinical practice. The Centre comprises research activity in the areas of sensing and photonics and biomedical engineering. It has particular expertise in novel optical fibre-based sensor design, fabrication and implementation, biomedical diagnostics, medical imaging and pattern recognition, photonics modelling, microelectronics, instrumentation and signal processing.

The Systems and Control Centre activities address the challenge of complexity in engineering and general processes and have extended the control and systems approaches to challenging problems in the Design, Operations, Risk and Management of Industrial Processes, as well as new fields of applications such as Energy, Environment, and Security. Its central goal is the development of methodologies that enable the management of complexity in engineering processes. Applications are supported by basic research in Mathematical Systems and Control Theory, Optimization, Linear Algebra and Computations. In order to get upgraded to PhD, you need to demonstrate progress on your dissertation by submitting a written piece of work and making a presentation in front of the academic staff.
