Research profile

Electrical Engineering research is an expanding area of activities which is heavily intertwined with important industrial activities and essential functions of society, such as energy supply and telecommunication. Covering the full area of Electrical Engineering provides essential synergy in the research, it makes the department into a valuable research partner in the region and is a solid basis for entering new research directions.

The department identifies three research focus areas:

  • Communication (Photonics and Wireless)
  • Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Signal Processing and Imaging

Long-term mono-disciplinary research is the responsibility of the nine research groups, which are the backbone of our department’s research. The research results in new technologies, improved understanding of specific technologies and extension of available knowledge in the various areas of expertise. The groups of the department essentially cover the entire field of electrical engineering. This comprehensive coverage has served us well and remains essential for us to be able to play a broad societal role.
