About the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering

As an active and successful centre of excellence in teaching and research, we offer in-depth specialisation in advanced communications technologies (power and spectrum efficient wireless access, image and video signal processing, photonics and quantum information) and electrical energy management.

We deliver eight fully accredited and industrially relevant undergraduate programmes and two state-of-the-art taught Masters (MSc) programmes to approximately 350 students.  Our 27 academic staff are supported by a dedicated admininistrative and technical team.

We work closely with colleagues in the Engineering Faculty and in Applied Sciences. Examples of this interdisciplinary approach include the undergraduate degree programme in Computer Science and Electronics (CSE), which includes a six month industrial placement and a taught postgraduate programme in Advanced Microelectronics and Systems Engineering (AMSE).

The Department places strong emphasis on collaborative research and attracts half of its research income from industry (UK and Overseas), with an income in excess of £2.8M per year. Our unique combination of theoretical and practical activities through our well-founded laboratories gives a truly distinctive value to a sponsored research activity at Bristol. 

As Head of Department I am proud of our world-leading staff and facilities. We are a friendly and supportive department that benefits from outstanding levels of industrial support.

At Bristol you’re taught by staff who are knowledgeable and really passionate about their subjects.
