The Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering (ACSE) is one
of the largest departments devoted to the subject in Europe, with 30
academic staff, 43 research staff, 29 professional and support staff and
nearly 400 taught and research students.
We are a world-leading research department, as evidenced by the results of
the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF2014) exercise - out of 62 UK
institutions specialising in multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary
engineering, the Department was ranked:
- First for quality of research publications, with 98.5% of our
publications assessed as either world-leading (41%) or internationally
excellent in terms of their originality, significance and rigour;
- Third for overall research quality with 96% of our research being
assessed as world-leading (44%) or internationally excellent.
We have a vibrant culture that supports collaborative research, and a
strong programme of training and development for our researchers, from
postgraduate research students to our research leaders. Our high quality
physical infrastructure facilitates excellent research, spanning all
aspects of Systems and Control Engineering.
Our research is organised into three groups: Complex Systems and Signal
Processing; Intelligent Systems, Decision and Control; and Autonomous
Systems and Robotics. We host the Centre for Signal Processing and Complex
Systems and the Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre in Control and
Monitoring Systems Engineering. We also play full and active roles in other
University research centres and institutes, including Sheffield Robotics,
the Institute for In Silico Medicine, the Advanced Manufacturing Research
Centre and the Centre for Assistive Technology and Connected Healthcare.
