The Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering
The Department is host to the National Centre for III-V Technologies and has extensive semiconductor clean room facilities, which enable students to undertake semiconductor device fabrication projects on state of the art materials.
The Electrical Machines and Drives research group has extensive industrial contacts with automotive, aerospace and power control industries. State of the art facilities such as lamination cutting, magnetising rigs for creating unique permanent magnet geometries, computer controlled dynamometers and extensive magnetic circuit and power electronic computer modelling facilities are available to students who take on projects in this area.
The Communications research group has wide contact with the aerospace and mobile communications industries and is equipped with state of the art network analysis and antenna test facilities, the latter including anechoic chambers and an outdoor test range at Buxton. These facilities can be used by project students undertaking projects in the communications area.
