The research program of the Department is centred on applied research in some of the core areas of engineering.
Signal Processing Algorithms (SPA)
The SPA group's research involves the development of mathematical algorithms for manipulation of ordered numerical data and can also be considered to fall under the field of computational/numerical mathematics.
Digital Radar and Radio Systems (TIGER)
The Digital Radar and Radio Systems team operate three high frequency radars (TIGER) which form part of an international network called Super Dual Auroral Radar Network (SuperDARN).
Advanced Materials Processing and Characterisation Group
The Advanced Materials Processing and Characterisation Group is dedicated to both fundamental scientific and industrial oriented research in the area of functional composite materials, nano and bulk functional materials and coatings.
Robotics, Automation, Mechatronics, Prototyping and Sensing (RAMPS)
The Robotics, Automation, Mechatronics, Prototyping and Sensing group (RAMPS) are a multidisciplinary team, providing Research and Development for Stakeholders across multiple industry sectors.
