The turnover on research is £2 million per year, and in the last government Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) the School received a grade 5. This indicates that a large part of the research in the School is at world leading level, and this continues to be a major factor in the School's success. The £2 million comes from a variety of sources including UK government and industry as well as the European Union. We are always very successful in getting European funding for many of our research projects.


In the latest government survey, we attained a score of 24/24 for our teaching, and full marks were also awarded in a more recent survey of the University. Our aim is to maintain and improve on this high quality in all aspects of our work. The School has 28 academic staff and 15 support staff who look after over 500 undergraduate students, around 60 MSc Students and a similar number of students studying for their doctorate.


The School has a large number of activities, ranging from the teaching of undergraduate degrees, to using our expertise to help local companies. Whichever aspect of Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering is of interest, we usually have some form of activity in the School. Looking through these web pages will show you the range of course and research activities.
