We offer research programmes in a variety of areas based on the work being carried out by our Research Centres and groups (http://www.bath.ac.uk/elec-eng/research/index.html
The Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering (http://www.bath.ac.uk/elec-eng/index.html
) is in the vanguard of progress in a fast-moving discipline. It offers a broad spectrum of research expertise supported by state-of-the-art facilities.
Its international reputation reflects substantial levels of research income and journal publication, and it offers outstanding opportunities in postgraduate research.
The dissemination of research findings is seen as a vital component of the research process and graduate students are encouraged to prepare papers for publication as part of their research training.
We encourage a wide range of interests. Academic staff are always open to ideas which extend existing work or introduce new topics to their existing subject areas.
Successful applicants are welcomed very much as junior academic colleagues rather than students, and are expected to play a full and professional role in contributing to the Department’s objective of international academic excellence.

The MPhil programme combines taught research training and applied research practice. Candidates join the Department as a member of the Research Centre in which they initially have a broad research interest and that will have overseen their acceptance into the Department.
Candidates are expected to carry out supervised research at the leading edge of their chosen subject, which must then be written up as a substantial thesis.
Please see the International students website (http://www.bath.ac.uk/study/international/

All non-native speakers of English are required to have passed English language tests.
If you need to develop your English language skills, the University’s Academic Skills Centre (http://www.bath.ac.uk/asc/

About the department
The Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering offers a broad spectrum of research expertise supported by state-of-the-art facilities. Its international reputation reflects substantial levels of research income and journal publication, and it offers outstanding opportunities in postgraduate research.
91% of our research activity was graded as either world-leading or internationally excellent in the Research Excellence Framework 2014 (http://www.bath.ac.uk/research/performance/
- Postgraduate facilities:
The postgraduate laboratories are well-equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and instrumentation. Postgraduate facilities include PCs and powerful workstations which also give direct and ready access to the University’s central computer system and the internet. Additional specialist research facilities are available within the department’s three research centres.
Main areas of research
Electronic and electrical engineering research is essential in the modern technological society and our department does much significant work in this area.
We collaborate proactively with other departments on many projects. We also collaborate extensively with leading industries and educational establishments around the world.
Many internationally-recognised research activities are undertaken by our three interdisciplinary research centres: the Centre for Space Atmospheric & Oceanic Science (http://www.bath.ac.uk/elec-eng/research/csaos/
), the Centre for Advanced Sensor Technology (http://www.bath.ac.uk/elec-eng/research/cast/
) and the Centre for Sustainable Power Distribution (http://www.bath.ac.uk/elec-eng/research/cspd/
). Other research work includes the EPSRC funded Invert Centre (http://www.bath.ac.uk/elec-eng/invert/
) for Imaging Science and additional research units.
We actively promote translation of our research into our teaching, with all taught postgraduate programmes including a detailed research project.
