Electronic “engineers create that which has never been'' (A. Einstein), making possible the future of technology to start now. Join our research group focused on collaborative and cross-disciplinary research, ready to guide you and enhancing your expertise in sensing, signal processing and smart control.
Our research interests include areas as:
As a postgraduate researcher you’ll have access to wide-ranging expertise, as well as the state of the art research facilities which include: hardware control platforms (FPGAs, DSPs, microcontrollers), photovoltaic panels, power converters, wind turbine, oscilloscopes, measurement/monitoring equipment at our campus in Cambridge, one of the UK’s premier science and technology cities.
If you've already conducted research and published work that demonstrates an independent and original contribution to knowledge in this field of you may wish to apply for a PhD by Published Work.
We’ll assign three supervisors – a primary and two relevant specialists – to support you during your research. There’ll be formal two-weekly reviews, with informal help available any time.
The Faculty of Science & Technology is one of the largest of five faculties at Anglia Ruskin University. Whether you choose to study with us full- or part-time, on campus or at a distance, there’s an option whatever your level – from a foundation degree, to a BSc, MSc, PhD or professional doctorate.
Whichever course you pick, you’ll gain the theory and practical skills needed to progress with confidence. Join us and you could find yourself learning in the very latest laboratories or on field trips or work placements with well-known and respected companies. You may even have the opportunity to study abroad.
Everything we do in the faculty has a singular purpose: to provide a world-class environment to create, share and advance knowledge in science and technology fields. This is key to all of our futures.
Anglia Ruskin's academic excellence was recognised in 2014, as part of the Research Excellence Framework (REF), an exercise which assesses the quality of academic research. Twelve areas of our work were classed as generating world-leading research. The results showed that we're making a significant impact on economies, societies, the environment and culture in all corners of the globe.
We provide comprehensive research training in fields such as academic writing, conference presentation and research methods. The skills you’ll develop will be invaluable in your wider career.
Additionally, you’ll be invited to take part in our research activities, from internal workshops and seminars to conferences.

MPhil: You’ll need a Bachelor degree or equivalent with first or upper second class honours, in a related subject area.
PhD: You’ll need a Master degree or equivalent in a related subject area.
Please note we consider most candidates for PhD with progression from MPhil. If you want to apply for direct entry to the PhD route, you’ll also need to provide academic justification for this with your application.
If English is not your first language, you'll require a minimum IELTS score of 6.5, with a minimum of 5.5 in each component (or equivalent test). If you don't meet our English language requirements, we offer a range of courses which could help you achieve the level required for entry.
It's possible that research in this area will need an Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) certificate. If we make you an offer to study with us we'll also give you the information you need to apply to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office for your ATAS certificate. Receiving the ATAS certificate takes approximately four weeks.
