The best Electronic and Electrical Engineering School in UK

Yes, as the title spell it out, we are the best Electronic and Electrical Engineering School in the United Kingdom, according to RAE 2008 (Research Assesment Exercise 2008).
What is RAE?

The Research Assessment Exercise is a peer review exercise to evaluate the quality of research in UK higher education institutions

The primary purpose of the RAE 2008 was to produce quality profiles for each submission of research activity made by institutions. The four higher education funding bodies intend to use the quality profiles to determine their grant for research to the institutions which they fund with effect from 2009-10. Any HEI in the UK that is eligible to receive research funding from one of these bodies was eligible to participate.

Qouting the school website in a few article:
"The School is celebrating its position as Number 1 in the UK in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), with an outstanding grade-point average (GPA) of 3.05, and an overwhelming 80% of activity rated as internationally excellent or World leading. This clearly confirms the School’s position as the leading electronic and electrical engineering department in the UK and a leader in the field internationally.

As a research intensive University the RAE is vitally important to us; high rankings enable us to attract increased funding and investment, as well as the very best staff and students."

Research Excellence
  1. The top electronic and electrical engineering school in the UK based on the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), with a grade-point average (GPA) of 3.05, and an overwhelming 80% of staff rated 3* or 4*. This denotes research of international standing and enables us to attracting funding to invest further in our reserach and facilities and to attract and retain outstanding staff.
  2. 100 years of history and has built on its long standing tradition of microwave engineering to also lead the world in terahertz technology and the semiconductor, bio- and quantum electronic aspects of nanotechnology.
  3. Recent investment in infrastructure and research staff in communications and signal processing has projected that area onto the international stage.

We are also having most of our research assessed as 4* and 3* as 4* being the highest rank for RAE2008. (

Thanks to Allah for granting me and husband this opportunity to study with the world class academicians, many thanks also to our sponsors for believing that we will someday... one sweet day go back to Malaysia with sufficient knowledge to be shared with our ummah.... We will try our best to study and gained as many knowledge as possible academically and also other lifelong skills so that we will bring back to Malaysia and may they will be something that will benefit our ummah. Insya-Allah. May Allah bless our journey here.
