Research into the development, analysis and implementation of algorithms that harness numerical approaches to mathematical problems.
This research area covers the development and application of advanced analytical methods to support improved decision making, especially in relation to the operation of complex and uncertain systems.
This research area focuses on novel techniques and systems for transporting information by fibre-guided or free-space photons, including analogue and digital signals.
This research area focuses on the design, modelling, fabrication, processing and evaluation of new or improved devices and systems whose quantum unit is the photon.
This research area looks at the design, modelling, fabrication and processing of new or improved active semiconductor-based devices and systems that use electrons and photons.
This research area encompasses growth, formation, processing, measurement, characterisation and multi-scale modelling of dry or wet particulate systems and fluid-particle systems.
Development, analysis, monitoring and optimisation of mechanical structures and systems.
This research area refers to the integration of computing into everyday objects to create systems which support concepts such as the Internet of Things, edge computing and the tactile internet.
This research area covers the synthesis, characterisation and theoretical understanding of materials and nanostructures that emit or interact with electromagnetic radiation or quasiparticles with similar characteristics.
The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) supports UK scientists to deliver the very best research and training across the physical sciences and provide an internationally competitive, balanced and engaged research portfolio to meet the UK’s needs.
