Over 60 Faculty members are actively involved in the doctoral programme. In addition, we have strong links with other engineering and science institutions, both within the University and externally, and several of their researchers supervise doctoral students in our programme. With a wide formation and origin, the Faculty combines traditional areas of research with many emerging areas of science and technology (e.g. Biotechnology, Materials Science or Nanotechnology), standing at the forefront of creating new knowledge and developing new understanding, many times stretching across the boundaries of science and engineering.
