Computer and Software  Engineering (CSE)

Director: Prof Philip Leong

Computer and Software Engineering (CSE) is at the heart of all modern electronic devices and the core research field that has enabled the current technological revolution. It is not only the basis of current computers and the internet, but also a vital part of mobile phones, portable multimedia devices, biomedical systems, automobiles, aircraft and spaceships. Most of current research in the sciences and several of the arts predominantly use hardware and software that comes out of CSE research.

In our group we have strong research activities in the following areas:

  • Computing: reconfigurable computing, parallel computing
  • Integrated Circuit Design: analogue IC design, neuromorphic engineering, FPGA architectures, RF IC design and RF and digital semiconductor physics
  • Signal Processing: audio processing, image processing and the processing of biomedical signals
  • Software Engineering: Software components, architectures and middleware, real-time systems and software performance engineering
  • Web Engineering: web-application development, data-mining, management applications, financial applications and machine learning.
