Our School has carried out extensive investment in our facilities to provide a diverse range of specialist laboratories, that ensure that our community has the tools needed to carry out ground-breaking research.
In recent years we have expanded and refurbished our Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) lab, and carried out extensive work to enhance our intelligent connected systems flat (iSpace), as well as adding to our robotics arena and communications laboratories.
Our facilities have been generously funded by a mix of grants and donations from prestigious bodies (including the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council), strategic initiatives (such as the Science Research Investment Fund), the University, and industry partners.
All our students have access to our dedicated PC Labs, several of which are open 24 hours a day. Our labs are designed to give students the tools they need for their learning, and include dual-boot Windows and Linux machines running specialist software such as Java, Prolog, C++, Perl, Mysql, Matlab, and DB2.
Undergraduate and Masters degree students may have access to our research facilities as part of their teaching for specific modules. They will also use these labs during their final year Capstone project (research project for Masters students), during which they will carry out their own research under the supervision of one of our academic staff.
