ICCS brings together world-leading academic experts and state-of-the-art facilities to advance the future technologies of a connected world. Our work penetrates every area of the communications network and interacts with a diverse range of application areas. Key to our work is engaging with industry and the engineers of the future as we innovate and develop this dynamic field of research.

Our founding department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering was the first department of Electrical Engineering in England, founded in 1885. Our work on the field of communications technology has spanned over 130 years beginning with the educating of Alexander Graham Bell and the pioneering collaboration between Professor Sir John Ambrose Fleming and Guglielmo Marconi. 

The Institute now comprises of over 100 researchers with a culmination of academic and industrial knowledge which spans all layers of the 'communication stack', including wireless and optical physical transport, higher management layers, and application domains.

Uniquely based in one of the UK's leading multidisciplinary Universities we also leverage our close connections to social sciences, arts and humanities, economics, and policy research.
