Systems Engineering has an international reputation for its innovative research across the broad disciplines of Computer Science and Information Systems, Cybernetics, and Electronic Engineering. The impact of our research is wide ranging covering many cognate areas.
The School works closely with local, regional and global industries and third sector organisations in order to support and strengthen our research agenda.
There exist three research groups and two research laboratories, as follows:
- Computing Research Group
- Cybernetics Research Group
- Information and Communications Technology Research Group
All of research activities underpin the School's four priority research themes:
addresses the causes of security threats, their detection and interventions to prevent harm.
- Health Technologies
addresses all aspects of technology, which can improve the well-being and health of citizens at all stages of their lives.
- Energy and Environment (including Space)
addresses research into technology towards understanding and conserving our natural resources, the environment, and quality of life.
- Digital Society
crosses all of our disciplines with much of our work taking into consideration the influence of what we do in everyday life.
