Welcome to the Department of Electronic Engineering, a department dedicated to world-leading research and teaching in Electronic Engineering. Our research groups play significant roles on the national and international stage, collaborating with major industries and securing funding from research councils. In the latest Research Excellent Framework assessment (2014), 87% of our work was assessed as world leading or internationally excellent.
With respect to our teaching, in the most recent NSS survey in 2018 we were ranked second in the Russell Group for overall satisfaction, and first for our teaching.
