Most modern systems such as consumer products, manufacturing machines, or even exotic measurement devices must be designed to comply with several constraints at the same time, including complex behavior, mechanical and electronic precision, low cost, low power consumption, environmental friendliness, networked operation, smart interaction with users and work in uncertain environments. Their design requires engineers who are fluent in such disciplines as electronics, mechanics, computers, control, and other areas like optics and material science.

The approach is supported by a curriculum seamlessly integrating the diverse disciplines, while being hands-on and research oriented from the undergraduate education, utilizing our comprehensive research infrastruture used for the industrial projects and fundamental research conducted by the program members.
