What is the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering?

The School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering is a department at the University of Leeds, with a specialist focus on engineering for electronics in a variety of areas including:

  • Microwave, semiconductor, and terahertz technologies.
  • Bio-nano and quantum technologies.
  • Robotics.
  • Ultrasound and medical imaging.
  • Energy-efficient green communications networks.
  • Wireless and mobile communications.
  • Power electronic systems.
  • Renewable energy.

It delivers pioneering research on a global scale and facilitates expert courses such as the online Engineering Management MSc in collaboration with three other engineering schools at Leeds.

The school is part of the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences, which brings together experts across other areas like civil engineering, chemical and process engineering, and mechanical engineering to generate knowledge sharing and collaboration across a wide range of disciplines.

What engineering research projects are currently underway at the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering?

With over 100 years of history and a unique infrastructure, the school offers an outstanding research impact to the global engineering industry.

Recently, researchers and academics at the University of Leeds were awarded £2 million of funding to set up the Communications Hub for Empowering Distributed Cloud Computing Applications and Research (CHEDDAR) that can drive innovation in cloud technologies.

The primary goals of the project are to:

  • Develop innovative collaboration methods to engage pockets of excellence around the UK.
  • Build a cohesive research ecosystem that nurtures early career researchers and new ideas.
  • Inform the design of new communication surfaces that cater to emerging computing capabilities (such as neuromorphic, quantum, molecular), key infrastructures (such as energy grids and transport), and emerging end-user applications (such as autonomy).
  • Create integrated design of hierarchical connected human-machine systems that promote secure learning and knowledge distribution, resilience, sustainable operations, trust between human and machine reasoning, and accessibility in terms of diversity and inclusion.
  • Co-develop regional case studies that reflect the diverse challenges faced by different industries and societies across the UK.

Working in collaboration with other universities, research from the new hub will help secure the future of cloud communications systems by making them safe, trustworthy, and sustainable.

“CHEDDAR will allow us to not only increase the efficiency of current deployments but also allow us to reduce the energy footprint of future deployments while supporting new services. It also aims to contribute towards the shortfall of digital skills and bridge the digital divide by developing human-centric design principles for future technologies”.
