The Clean Room - Brunel laboratory
The University offers dedicated robotics and communications laboratories, where students focus on industrial and intelligent robotic systems and high frequency electronics.

Laboratory facilities

  • Printed Circuit Board (PCB) manufacturing with surface mount facility in-house allows you to construct professional quality six layer boards with state-of-the-art components.
  • We have a class 100 and a class 10 Clean Room. These form the Wolfson Nanomagnetics Laboratory - a cleanroom based laboratory for research and student projects in spintronics, nanotechnology, multifunctional material/devices and biosensors.
  • Our communications laboratory has a full range of industry standard high frequency (HF) test equipment. You will be able to build and test HF systems from discrete component level through to the interfacing multi-band communication chip-sets (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth) commonly used in consumer electronics.
  • We have mechanical workshop facilities including 3D printing and laser cutting.
  • For a hands-on student experience we offer full access to a suite of laboratories equipped with a range of power supplies, test equipment, soldering stations and computers with specialist software (Labcenter Electronics ‘Proteus Design Suite’ CAD package, National Instruments’ LabVIEW’, Altera ‘Quartus’, Mathworks ‘MATLAB’ and Keil ‘uVision‘ IDE).
