Selecting your research project
We will offer you one-to-one supervision by world leading experts to develop your personal research project in one of our established Research Themes:
- Embedded Artificial Intelligence
- Nano-electronic Technologies for AI
- Agent-Based Adaptive Systems
- Task-Optimised Devices and Systems
Some examples of currently ongoing projects can be found here.
Receiving bespoke research training
You will receive specialised training from experts based on your personal interests and academic background that will help you develop a broad awareness of the science and techniques across AI and Electronics.
You will learn how to apply methods for responsible research and innovation in your work, we will help you develop entrepreneurial skills, and get confident in communicating scientific topics to different audiences.
You will take part in several events (outreach, showcase, innovation camp, hackathons) that will give you the opportunity to practise and polish these new skills. For example, you can join an initiative to communicate the societal value of AI and Electronics research to local communities and inspire school students from diverse backgrounds to study STEM subjects.
Putting diversity into practice
ECS has recently been awarded the Athena SWAN Bronze Award recognising our commitment to fairness, inclusivity and gender equality. We are particularly keen to receive applications from people from a range of backgrounds and communities.
You should have, or expect to shortly receive, a good undergraduate degree (at least a UK 2:1 honours degree, or international equivalent), in computer science, electronics, or closely related subject; e.g. mathematics or physics. EU and Overseas applicants should achieve an IELTS score of 6.5 with at least 6.0 in each competency.
