New manufacturing processes and new sustainable materials are being developed to meet the needs of future supply chains.
Citizens and Democracy
The civic and political behaviour of individuals and the ways governments engage with citizens are transformed by the internet and social media.
Data Science and AI
The Institute for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence acts as an access point to the University's expertise in data science.
Digital Trust and Security
As we become increasingly more dependent on digital technology, it's critical to understand whether we can trust the security and resilience of the systems we use and the people we interact with.
Increasingly sophisticated automation means that everything we design, from cars to personal digital assistants, to algorithms, must have human understanding, behaviour and ethics at the centre.
Social Media and Networks
Communication has been revolutionised. The implications of this are profound in many ways, affecting societies, cultures, politics, economics, science and media.
Internet of Things
Internet of Things (IoT) technology plays a crucial role in digital transformation across a range of sectors, providing the link between the physical and digital worlds.
