Project Details


Founded following the merger of The Victoria University of Manchester and UMIST in 2004, the Electromagnetic Sensing Group in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering undertakes a range of research using electromagnetic sensing techniques across a wide bandwith – from DC to microwave, with a focus on real-world application.

This research can broadly be separated into three main themes: Non-Destructive Testing (NDT); Security and Detection; and Biomedical Diagnostics. Our group, consisting of over 30 members, encompasses a range of expertise including electromagnetic modelling and simulation; data analysis and inversion; system hardware development; position and high-speed electronic design; high-performance digital system design; and system integration - all with a proven record of technology transfer.
