Services for Business and Engineering Consultancy

High Speed test facilityNewcastle University's School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE), based in North East England is one of the premier institutes in the country.

As well as offering excellent teaching and research we also provide services for industry, for both small and large organisations alike.

The School is continually investing in new research facilities, to maintain and build upon its research strengths and to meet the needs of industry. Over £8 million has been invested in projects developing new, leading-edge research facilities which are currently in progress or have been completed in the last 18 months including:

  • High speed test facility for aerospace and automotive research
  • Centre for Advanced Electrical Drives
  • Climate controlled laboratory facilities for nanoelectronic and material characterisation
  • Class 1000 clean room
  • Technologies for extreme environments research and development facilities

The School has four research groups whose key areas of research are summarised below:

Communications and Signal Processing - including mobile communications algorithms and networks; wireless technologies; biomedical instrumentation and biometrics; digital signal processing and embedded software; sub-sea acoustic signal processing;

Microelectronic System Design - digital / analogue hardware design; asynchronous system design; secure hardware design; synthesis and verification; on-chip timing measurements; logarithmic scale processors; self test for SoC, concurrent error detection; design for testability and testing for high temperature SOI technologies.

Power Electronics, Drives and Machines - including novel electromagnetic devices and motors; fault tolerant drives; drives using new materials; power electronics and derived systems; estimation and control; and automation.

Nano Materials and Electronics - including strained Si/SiGe technology for high speed low power integrated circuits; SiC for high temperature high power electronics; reliability of IC interconnects; high-k dielectrics; fabrication; electrical and material characterisation; technology CAD; molecular electronics; carbon nanotubes.

EEE offers much more than the traditional vision of an academic department, it exists to develop and transfer electrical, electronic and computer engineering technology to industry. These are just some of the ways in which we can help:

  • Consultancy for design, evaluation, development or testing activities, to long-term, leading-edge development and research.
  • Tailor-made master classes provide targeted small group training in all areas of Electrical & Electronic Engineering.
  • Continuing Professional Development courses for professionals that can lead to postgraduate qualifications including part-time research degrees.
  • Conversion courses for those transferring into Electrical & Electronic Engineering from another technical discipline, leading to a recognised qualification.
  • Specific support to small and medium sized businesses to develop their products, in association with Newcastle University's dedicated teams.
  • Expert witnesses.

For any enquiries regarding work that EEE may be able do for you personally or for your business, please do not hesitate to contact the SAgE Faculty Enterprise Team.
