Cardiff is one of Britain’s major teaching and research universities. Located in the centre of the capital city of Wales, it has an international reputation for the quality of its work which attracts staff and students from around the world. The School of Engineering was ranked among the top ten combined engineering schools in the UK in the Research Assessment Exercise 2008. We approach research as a collaborative and innovative enterprise, involving amongst others, industrial partners, research organisations and other universities. Within the School, key research themes including Aerospace, Digital Economy, Magnetics, Materials and Nanoscience and our seven multidisciplinary research institutes including Energy and Materials Devices and Systems provide a strong framework to sustain our dynamic leading edge research culture. The School has a strong background in thermoelectrics and measurement techniques for the electrical and thermal transport properties of semiconductors, leading to the development of energy harvesters for applications such as structural health monitoring.
