Within the EEMCS faculty we perform disciplinary research in electrical engineering, mathematics and computer science.
Synergy between disciplines opens a whole new world of new scientific challenges. We highly value synergy, therefore we stimulate interdisciplinary research. Some examples are creative technology, data science, robotics and imaging.
To maximise our efforts to have a true impact on society we conduct research across the boundaries of disciplines. At the UT the multidisciplinary research projects come together in our institutes. Three research institutes play an important role in realizing synergy between the faculties: the MESA+ institute for Nanotechnology, the Institute for Medical Technology and the Institute for the Digital Society.
These research institutes form an active connection with society. Principal investigators have an active participation on a national level (Nationale Wetenschapsagenda, Topsectoren) and on an international level, for example by participating in Horizon2020 projects. It is in this context that we are able to contribute to societal challenges.
