As Engineers, we believe that practical application and interaction with industry are an inherent part of what we do. We are always keen to talk to companies and external organisations, both large and small to explore how we might collaborate.

Within these pages, you can exploreŐżthe varied ways in which we collaborate with external organisations.

Industry Advisory Board

The department has an advisory board consisting of industry leaders who provide informed advice on strategic concerns and issues likely to affect the future of the department. We work closely with our Industry Advisory Board who regularly monitors and reviews the programmes to ensure they maintain their industrial relevance.

Spin Outs

In the most recent The Knowledge Exchange Framework (KEF),Őża new assessment of how English universities carry out knowledge exchange, ¬“¬◊–„ was placed in the highest category forŐżIntellectual property and commercialisation. At EEE ensuring our research has tangible impact on society has always been an important driver. This has led to several commercial ventures as well as licensing of EEE technology. Below is a list of some of our successful spin-outs.

Correvate Logo



Correvate Ltd

Correvate Limited is a company commercialising an algorithm developed at ¬“¬◊–„‚Äôs Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering under an exclusive licence from ¬“¬◊–„ Business PLC.Őż The algorithm facilitates the registration and downstream analysis of 3D point cloud datasets.Őż Its first market is in the fast growing ‚ÄėBIM‚Äô sector (an acronym for Building Information Modelling) where its Vercator software enables professionals such as surveyors, architects and construction engineers to increase their productivity, accelerate turnaround times and reduce costs.

Senceive Ltd

Innovative remote condition monitoring solutions for the rail and construction industries. was spun out from the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering to commercialise an innovative approach to the problem of monitoring distributed industrial environments such as railway infrastructures and underground mines. By utilising a number of small, intelligent devices that communicate through meshed radio networks, the company offers an autonomous solution that is easy for non-experts to install, maintain and use.


Founded in 2003 from the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering in collaboration with the University of Cambridge, Zinwave aims to provide sub-systems and systems for distributing wireless signals, including those for applications such as cellular radio and WLAN in a flexible, future proof and low cost manner. Zinwave’s proprietary technology enables these applications to be serviced using low cost multi-mode fibres, giving rise to significant cost savings for system providers and installers.
