The Institute of Sensors, Signals and System’s (ISSS) vision is to provide a continuum of expertise in electronic systems ranging from sensors and system design, manufacturing and test and the processing of information used and generated by these systems.
As a research student here you will benefit from opportunities to collaborate with renowned research centres in the UK, Europe and the US through focused projects and exchange agreements. You might also be part of the two Centres of Doctoral Training in Robotics and Autonomous Systems, and in Embedded Intelligence.
You will also become a member of the Edinburgh Research Partnership, giving you access to a wide range of expertise and support across two universities.
We offer a stimulating international environment with all our programmes linked to the Institute’s active research groups: Signal and Image Processing (SIP), Ocean System Laboratory (OSL), Robotics and Autonomous Systems, Microsystems (MISEC), Microwave Engineering, and Wireless Communications.
We carry out world-class research in several aspects of signal processing, vision and robotics, sensor and network engineering, microsystem technology, microwave engineering, energy and power engineering.
