Electronic, information and communication systems research

Electronics and computers are an integral part of our lives today. Massey's expertise within this area is helping meet the challenges of this interconnected world.

Research expertise

Acoustics engineering

We have research expertise in acoustics, non-destructive testing, remote sensing and sensor development.

Our researchers also work in areas like realistic sound for cinema and gaming, architectural acoustics for learning spaces, noise and vibration control.


Embedded systems design

Our expertise is in sensor applications, instrumentation, control and wireless sensor networks.


Language and speech processing

Expertise in speech processing, image processing and language processing technologies. Our research is investigating Māori speech recognition tools and speech emotion and sentiment recognition. We are investigating applying speech processing technology in foreign language teaching and learning and the development of text mining and machine translation.


Micro and power electronics

Our researchers have expertise in electronic design and testing.

Our expertise in power electronics has application into variable speed machine drives, integration of multiple sources of renewable energy, sensing and instrumentation, and the application into automation and robotics.

We also have expertise in microchip design, Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) and integrated circuit design.


Telecommunications and network engineering

Our researchers have expertise in areas related to the telecommunications network including the internet, network planning and mobile communication networks.


Vision and image processing

This area involves developing algorithms and software for recognising patterns, individuals, objects and other specialist features in images and movie sequences. Applications include security scanning systems, control of robots and product quality scanning.

We also have interests in visual perception, colour science and multi/hyper-spectral imaging.
