Organisational unit: Research Theme
The Communications research theme encompasses departments across the University and focuses on the theory of communications systems and how they are applied to a wide range of technological and societal problems.
The Communications theme covers a vast range of research areas in a rapidly evolving field. Both as a core discipline and as a key enabler for information and communications technology throughout society, communications offers significant challenges in the areas of fixed and wireless communications systems, next-generation networks and internet, photonics, electromagnetics, signal processing (including image and video transmission), microwave theory and techniques, and RF power amplifiers and circuits. Communication technologies are applied to areas as diverse as medical electronics, avionics, SMART metering/grid for energy supply, the automotive industry, semiconductor integrated circuits, and nuclear reactor and plant monitoring with sensor networks.
