The Graduate School is divided into five Research Institutes (which comprise of members from our four disciplines, Chemical Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electronics and Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, as shown below):
The Institute for Materials and Processes (IMP) joins researchers from materials science, materials synthesis and processing, and manufacturing optimisation. PhD opportunities in IMP include the Chemical, Electronics and Mechanical disciplines.
The Institute for Integrated Micro and Nano Systems (IMNS) bring together researchers from integrated circuit design, system-on-chip design, microfabrication, micro-electro mechanical systems (MEMS), micro-machining and neural computation. PhD opportunities in IMNS include the Electronics and Mechanical disciplines.
The Institute for Digital Communications (IDCOM) is committed to research in digital signal processing and its application to communications, radar, audio and medical systems; and future systems and services for automated telephone and advanced Internet communication. PhD opportunities in IDCOM include the Electronics and Mechanical disciplines.
The Institute for Energy Systems (IES) conducts world-class research into the systems that control the conversion, transmission and utilisation of many forms of energy. PhD opportunities in IES include the Electronics and Mechanical disciplines.
The Institute for Infrastructure and Environment (IIE) has five research groups that cover a remarkable range of topics within the Infrastructure, Environment and Civil Engineering fields, with a focus on interdisciplinary and emerging areas. PhD opportunities in IIE include the Civil discipline.
Applications for September 2014 are now open - deadline for applications is 30th April 2014.
