About us

The Engineering Research Centre is a cross-department multidisciplinary research centre drawing on the relevant engineering expertise that exists within departments in the School of Engineering, Physical and Mathematical Sciences (EPMS) and additional expertise within other schools of the college. At Royal Holloway there is a significant body of engineering research in Physics in quantum engineering and accelerator science, in the ISG based around cyber physical systems, as well as in Electronic Engineering.  We have built a strong foundation for the continued growth of the engineering community with research routed in quantum computing, nano devices, spintronics, photonics, lightweight structural materials, particle accelerators, cyber security, autonomous systems, clean energy, and acoustics. We also serve as a vehicle for the engineering community to engage with other disciplines in science, the arts, social sciences and humanities, building teams for challenge led research.
