Engineering and technology in development contexts

Our research into new technologies has a vast and wide-ranging impact on health diagnoses, energy development and global security.

From investigating the suitability and reliability of water treatment and disinfection in developing countries, to developing new technology platforms to provide brain imaging and visualising gene transcription; our academics and postgraduate researchers are pioneering new methods of understanding and reacting to the challenges faced by contemporary societies across different continents.

This research helps to address medical and environmental issues, providing cost-effective, flexible solutions to replace old technologies or ways of thinking.
