Our researchers are engaged with several different groups in academia and industry from across the world. The research is characterised by a high level of interdisciplinary collaboration both within the Department and with other fields such as life sciences, natural sciences, physics, computer science, civil and electronic engineering.
Funding for our research comes from national and European sources as well as directly from industry, philantropy or through some of our academic partners overseas. There are strong ties between our Department and local industry through either direct or state funded projects.
