Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Engineering research takes us deeper into the understanding of how things work and enables us to develop new technologies. Our department has a number of research areas. Visit each one to find out more about what we're currently focusing on.
Best known as a world leader in the area of inductive power transfer (IPT) research.
Focusing on integration of distributed/renewable energy sources to electricity power system with emphasis on protection, economics & innovations.
Systems and control
Research focuses on robust multivariable control, bit stream and networked control, fault tolerant systems, nonlinear system identification, fault diagnosis.
Telecommunications and electromagnetics
Research in this area focuses on areas of interest involving radio systems and microwave engineering and electromagnetics.
Forensics and biometrics
The focus here includes human biometrics, forensic image processing via hyperspectral methods, modelling speech production and speech forensics.
Parallel and reconfigurable computing
High performance computing from the desktop PC to the supercomputer, exploiting multicore processors, FPGAs, clusters are just some of the research interests in this area.
The main focus is on semiconductor-based systems enabling emerging implementation technologies such as nano-mechanical and biological systems.
Software Engineering Processes, Tools and Applications (SEPTA)
Research topics range from empirical studies of human and social aspects of software engineering, with emphasis on Agile methods such as Scrum and XP, to more technical topics.
Research ranges from the psychology of human robot interaction to robotic programming systems, with applications in areas such as healthcare and agriculture.
Industrial Informatics and Automation (IIA)
The central theme for IIA is distributed and intelligent solutions for industrial automation.
