Our Research

We have a vibrant community of recognised researchers focused on addressing major challenges in power systems, biomedical engineering, VLSI, control systems, computation networks, electronic devices and materials, and systems engineering. Our research in advanced technologies aims to develop state-of-the-art algorithms with a large variety of applications.
The research and development activity, as demonstrated by the number of publications, citations and the amount of research expenditure, has steadily grown and proven outstanding when compared nationally.  Our faculty, students and researchers are actively engaged in research in the following areas.


 Electronic and Photonic Systems

Advancing the frontiers in photonics and electronics towards the development of novel devices and systems for emerging applications. Our research spans electronics, nano-electronics, photonics, nano-photonics, antenna engineering, microwave and millimetre-wave engineering, and systems engineering.

 Solar Energy - Thin Film Solar Cells

Solar cells are a renewable way of producing electricity out of sunlight, without wearing out or consuming anything. We develop new types of solar cells from materials that have extraordinary absorption properties and therefore can be made very thin. Thin-film solar cells will become significant renewable resources for our sustainable energy supply in the near future.  It offers the most promising options for substantially reducing the cost of photovoltaic systems and allows high market penetration of solar electricity. Thin film solar cells are the new generation of solar cells that contain multiple thin film layers of photovoltaic materials. The thin film solar cells are also known as a thin film photovoltaic cell (TFPV). A thin semiconductor device deposited on a glass or plastic substrate creates thin-film solar modules. The thicknesses of thin film layers are less as compared to P-N junction solar cells.

 Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical engineering is concerned with the application of engineering principles to the study and control of biological processes. In this area, mathematical and physical concepts are developed which are applied to medicine and biology. Specific applications include featuring extraction in cardiac imagery, MEMS devices for direct interfacing with biological systems, modelling of biological sensory and motor systems, and the development of sensors for the detection of cancer cells. Because of the continued advancement of medical technology and the many unsolved problems in the understanding and treatment of disease, bioengineers play an essential role in the improvement of the understanding of biological systems, and in the development and evaluation of healthcare technologies..

 Communication and Networks

We analyse, design and optimise communications systems and networks for a variety of emerging applications. We use tools and approaches from communication theory, coding, information theory, detection and estimation, systems theory, stochastic processes, game theory, signal processing, network optimisation and much more.

 Control and Signal Processing

We undertake research, education, and industry engagement activities that relate to the modelling, optimisation, monitoring and automation of dynamical systems. Our research expertise ranges from the mathematical foundations of systems engineering to applications in water and power system management, defence, and biomedical technology.

 Some Research Notes and Useful Links

Students can get advice from the teacher about their study option and research. The student has to write either a research paper or thesis. The main purpose of this instruction is to guide the student to enhance their quality in academic writing and shape the research. 

 Find a Research Topic and Write a Research Article: A research article is a piece of academic writing based on your original idea on a particular topic. The student has to present the analysis and interpretation of the research findings they have obtained. Through the article, the research gets archival value. Further, the article connects research and researchers. Anyway, choosing an appropriate research topic is challenging.  The ability to retrieve information to develop a good research topic is an important skill. Supervisors help you to find a specific topic, but most often supervisors require you to select your own topic of interest. The topic must be narrow and focused enough to be interesting, yet broad enough to find adequate information.  There are a few things that you will need to know to find a research topic

The students have to develop an academic writing habit, an essential activity in research, from research proposals to papers. In the following a link, the author provides some tips which can help to keep you focused and guide you write a successful research article.

   Tips to write a Research Paper

 Research Methodology: The research methods section in your article describes actions, specific procedures or techniques to be taken to investigate a research problem. It is used to identify, select, process, and analyze information applied to understand the problem. The method allows the reader to critically evaluate a study, overall validity and reliability. The writing should be direct and precise and should be written in the present simple tense.  Find more tips from scholars.

   The Research Method

 A Tool to Check Grammer and Language Issue: To avoid unnecessary errors and typos students are advised to use the spell-check and grammar-check tool. Grammarly is a cloud-based English-language writing enhancement platform. The software could be used to proofread and check against more than 250 grammar rules. The app can be used to detect potential grammar, spelling, punctuation, word choice, and style mistakes in writing. Its algorithms flag potential issues in the text and suggest context-specific corrections for grammar, spelling, wordiness, style, punctuation.


 Use Similarity Checking Tool to Avoid Plagiarism: According to IEEE, plagiarism defined as the reuse of prior processes, results, or words without explicitly acknowledging the contributing author and the source. The researchers have to aware that plagiarism in any form, at any level, is unacceptable and is considered a serious breach of professional conduct, with potentially severe ethical and legal consequences. In this regard, the plagiarism detection software gives percentages of similarity with other sources in your writing. The respective teacher sets a standard percentage rate that is acceptable to them. Students must remain lower at that percentage rate for their papers to be satisfactory in regard to similarity. Please follow the below link for further information. Interested students are referred to the respective teacher and supervisor to get a similarity check of their writing.


 Bibliography and Reference Management: Write and cite. To be a responsible researcher give credit to other researcher and acknowledging their ideas.  It allows the reader to track down and follow the similar sources used by citing them in your paper. In this regard, bibliography management tools also known as citation or reference management tools help you organize research sources and generate bibliographies in multiple citation formats. Mendeley is a free reference manager and academic social network that can help you organize your research, collaborate with others online, and discover the latest research. It can quickly add articles from any supported website directly into your reference library with a single click. Mendeley has plug-ins for MS Word. It makes bibliography creation easy. The Citation Plugin lets you cite while you write. There are lots of citation styles and you can even create your own. Further, it has a huge storage repository for individual researcher where you can keep the papers and track record of your reading.  Follow the link below to learn and choose a tool that is best for you.
