The Institute of Integrated Information Systems (I3S) has an established international reputation for excellence across a broad range of modern electronic engineering research.
The institute is led by Professor Jaafar Elmirghani and currently comprises of 9 academic staff, including 2 professors, 5 research fellows and around 30 PhD students. Support is provided by a number of academic-related and support staff.
Our current activities include signal processing for communications, communications theory, sensor networks, ultrasonics, optical communication, and communication networks. We have recently invested in a new area of research into quantum communications, which is expanding our activities still further.
A new wireless communications laboratory has recently been constructed and £1.3M of strategic research infrastructure funding has enabled a complete refurbishment of all the Institute laboratories.
We have significant research funding from a number of sponsors including the UK research councils (EPSRC), and our expansion into optical communications and networking has strengthened our industrial links, which now include all major telecommunications companies.
