About

The Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at the University of Bath is in the vanguard of progress in a fast-moving discipline. It offers a broad spectrum of research expertise supported by state-of-the-art facilities.

Its international reputation reflects substantial levels of research income and journal publication, and it offers outstanding opportunities in postgraduate research.

The dissemination of research findings is seen as a vital component of the research process and graduate students are encouraged to prepare papers for publication as part of their research training.

We encourage a wide range of interests. Academic staff are always open to ideas which extend existing work or introduce new topics to their existing subject areas.

Successful applicants are welcomed very much as junior academic colleagues rather than students, and are expected to play a full and professional role in contributing to the Departments objective of international academic excellence.
