About the department
The department of Electrical Engineering and Automation began operating on 1 January 2014. It represents the merger of three departments: Automation and Systems Technology, Electronics and Electrical Engineering. All three departments have had significant shared research interests and have worked with common industrial partners.
The new department is an ecosystem where scientists and engineers from different fields interact and work together by crossing traditional boundaries to solve the most challenging scientific and technological problems, provide an excellent education and produce greater wellbeing for society in general.
Our interdisciplinary team, which combines expertise from microsystems, electrical engineering and automation, will expand scientific and technological knowledge. Our mission is to contribute to society through innovations, education and research at the highest international level.
The total size of the staff is 180, including 16 tenured professors.
