The Communications Engineering Group covers a broad range of research including applications of microwave technology to communications and sensor systems, novel aspects of network design and optical communications. The group has a long tradition of excellence in electromagnetics and continues to exploit this with a combination of fundamental and applied research.
Researched topics range from antennas, through microwave circuits, radiowave propagation, optics, networking and radar, to communications signal processing. Research funding comes from the EU, research councils, the MOD and industry.
The Communications Engineering group comprises of five laboratories, each which focusses on a particular strand of communication theory. Past and current research projects and topics include:
