Care robots, speech recognition, micromaterials, galaxies near and far away – the School of Electrical Engineering is so much more than electricity and smart power grids, as we study many topics you might not initially associate with the electrical industry. We take part in solving the great challenges humanity is facing, such as climate change, the depletion of natural resources and an aging population.

    A side-view of a metasurface, which is illuminated by two input sources (one at each side of the metasurface, represented by inward arrows). The metasurface properties will produce output waves (represented as output arrows), which intensity and propagation direction are determined by the intensity and angle of incidence of the output waves, and the properties of the metasurface.
