Members of this research theme come from three different departments; Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, Electrical and Software Engineering, and Computer Science. Some of the research that is headed by these members include digital design and addressing problems in visual computing through the use of data visualization, computer graphics, and image processing.
The associated facilities work on projects such as Visualize Magnetosphere, 3D visualization techniques, flow control, and visual computing.
