Our research has impact in several key areas, including Medicine and the Life Sciences, Robotics Autonomous Systems and Transport, Manufacturing and Quality Control, Medicine and Health, Human-Computer Interaction and Communication, Wireless and Wired Communication Networks, Electronics and Microelectronics, Environmental Monitoring and Remote Sensing, Security, Surveillance and Defence.
The range of research activities presented above would not be possible without the disposal of an extensive range of facilities such as those in National Robotarium, Ocean Systems Laboratory, Microwave and Antenna Engineering and Medical Device Manufacturing. The research institute is very much a hands-on engineering institute with a strong applied and industrial research emphasis.
