Welcome from our Head of Electronic Engineering

"Creativity is at the root of all great engineering inventions, solving problems and implementing new ideas into smaller and faster devices to enhance human existence.

Here at Royal Holloway it is an exciting and highly creative time as we deliver new degree courses and grow new research groups around our strengths from a brand new building designed for today’s Electronic Engineering. Project-led activities are at the heart of our teaching to encourage entrepreneurship and group working in all stages of the curriculum.

We invite you to join us and develop your skills to become part of the global teams of electronic engineers who are striving to find solutions and improve lives in our fast-moving technological world. Ours is a welcoming department where you will feel both at home and inspired by great teaching, original research and first class facilities.
