Research and PhD Programmes

Research activities in Electronic and Electrical Engineering (ECE) cover a wide range of areas which have direct compliance with the industry vision and requirements, formed around two broad thematic areas namely, telecommunications, sustainable energy and systems.

The Department has an extensive research portfolio totalling £7.5M worth of ongoing research grants and contracts. This is in addition to a large set of comprehensive high-quality teaching and learning resources coupled with strong research links with industry and an excellent record of employment amongst our graduates. Electronic and Computer Engineering at Brunel also benefits from geographical proximity to most of the country’s information engineering and telecommunications industry.
