Centres and institutes
Our staff and research students work with research centres and institutes to solve industrial challenges.
ACSE is home to the University Technology Centre (UTC) in Control and Monitoring Systems Engineering supported by Rolls-Royce. This centre carries out co-ordinated and directed programmes of research in the fields of control and monitoring systems, including model-based architecture design and optimisation.
A collaborative initiative between the University and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. It's a multi-disciplinary institute involving over 80 academics and clinicians who develop computer simulations of the human body and its disease processes to improve diagnosis and treatment.
Sheffield Robotics involves the Departments of Computer Science, Psychology and ACSE and Sheffield Hallam University. The world leading Centre of Robotics is involved in developing robots and algorithms across a wide range of application areas. Members from ACSE play an integral part with particular interests in autonomous mobile robots, unmanned air vehicles and swarm robotics.
Rail Innovation and Technology Centre (RITC)
The RITC at the University of Sheffield extends across the entire engineering faculty. The focus of the RITC's activity is intelligent systems engineering involving detection, sensing, communication, materials, structures and software technologies that can be applied to rail infrastructure, operations and traffic, although no aspect of railway-related research is excluded.
Centre for Signal Processing and Complex Systems
The Centre for Signal Processing and Complex Systems supports a diverse range of multi-disciplinary research projects that span several departments and institutions. The centre provides the underpinning signal processing, system identification, dynamical analysis, control and modelling to support emerging multi-disciplinary research themes in the life sciences and other related fields.
Centre for Signal Processing in Neuroimaging and Systems Neuroscience (SPiNSN)
The Centre for Signal Processing in Neuroimaging and Systems Neuroscience conducts world-class research on the identification of complex and nonlinear systems and the development of advanced neuroimaging techniques and computational modelling in systems neuroscience.
The centre supports joint research activities between the Departments of Psychology and Automatic Control and Systems Engineering in neuroimaging and systems neuroscience.
