Organisational unit: Department
We conduct world-leading research, particularly focused in the areas of Applied Nonlinear Mathematics and Intelligent Systems. We ranked as one of the top three applied mathematics departments in the UK in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise.
Recent successes include a £1.6M EPSRC grant, a Royal Society Wolfson award, and IEEE fellowship, and the Bristol/Bath EngD in Systems Engineering. The Doctoral Training Centre in Complexity Science has just been awarded a £3.5M extension providing 10 fully-funded PhD studentships each year for the next three years. Thanks to our home in the Faculty of Engineering we have strong links with all the engineering departments, but we also collaborate more widely across the university, particularly with the Faculties of Science, and Medical and Veterinary Sciences. The department also has strong external and industrial links, including recent joint projects with BT, GCHQ, Airbus amongst many others.
