Research in the Faculty of Engineering, Computer Sciences and Psychology
All around the world, progress in science and technology is marked by innovations in the fields of engineering, computer science and psychology. A visible trend is emerging towards increasingly complex adaptive systems, in which the conventional border between hardware and software becomes blurred. Software systems are becoming more and more complex, requiring more efficient algorithms as well as improved methods and processes for developing, realising and functionally verifying them. Such systems require increasingly powerful hardware components with new functions, and they must also be energy efficient - in particular for use in mobile systestems.
Another important aspect of our research is optimising usability and functional transparency of technical systems for human use. Integrating psychology as a third field of study in our faculty, with a clear research focus on human-computer interaction, makes direct cooperation possible between scientists in the fields of engineering, computer science and psychology, leading to ground-breaking research in the future.
The Faculty’s research clusters
The Faculty has the following five research focuses at present:
Cognitive Systems and Human-Computer-Interaction
Adaptive Software-Intensive Systems
Sensor Technology and Signal Processing
Microwave and High-Frequency Systems
Semiconductor- and Nanomaterials
Only a part of our research projects are covered here. Further information can be found on the pages of the individual institutes.
