Engineering and Applied Science

The School’s research is focused on 4 strategic themes: communications and sensing, health technologies (biomedical engineering, biomimetic materials, bioinformatics), bioenergy and sustainability, and understanding complex systems (physical, statistical/probabilistic, and knowledge engineering). Recently the School has established two Research Institutes to strengthen it's strategic activities:

In addition, the School has a number of multidisciplinary Research Groups, drawing together skills from across the school:

The research is underpinned by six academic groups. Each Academic Group reflects underlying competence and facilities. Academic Groups are also the basis for our degree programmes.

The School's 6 Academic Groups are:

Generic training for research students is delivered through an integrated programme of Research Skills Training. In addition, PhD students often take modules from our Research MSc degrees (eg: MRes Photonic Networks) to provide discipline specifi c training. Across the School there are facilities dedicated for student use, and all are supplied with individual computers.

If you have any questions or to make an application, please contact a potential supervisor or research group or the Research Student Administrator (seasres@aston.ac.uk).
