The Information Engineering Division is broadly concerned with the generation, distribution, analysis and use of information in engineering systems. As such it straddles the boundary between traditional Computer Science and Engineering Departments. The Head of Division is Professor Jan Maciejowski.
The four main research laboratories are listed to the right. The Control Laboratory carries out research in the theory and practice of control engineering with applications including automotive and aerospace control. Interdisciplinary research on engine control and emissions is carried out in the I.C. Engines - Emissions, Measurement and Control research activity. The Machine Intelligence Laboratory leads research in the areas of speech recognition systems, computer vision and medical imaging whilst the Signal Processing and Communications Laboratory is concerned with a wide range of signal and image processing projects in many different application areas. The Computational and Biological Learning Laboratory uses engineering approaches to understand the brain and to develop artificial learning systems.
