Research Disciplines

Research in the faculty EEMCS can be divided in four themes. Several research groups participate in each of these themes. The themes are:

  • Sensors and components
  • Sensor Networks
  • Secure information systems and interaction
  • Dynamic systems and processes

The health domain is a socially relevant theme with many different dimensions. The UT and EEMCS have the expertise to tackle the research questions associated with many of these dimensions. EEMCS can make fundamental contributions in terms of diagnostics and medication, by measuring, analysing, visualizing, and influencing events at cell level. The processing of measurements can take place in sensor networks that are connected within a personal area network. The information systems and processes used in the provision of care are examined at systems level. In future, care will be even more embedded in a network environment than it is now. For this reason, there is a need for fundamental research in the areas of dependability and security, human-systems interaction, and business processes models. In the region of Twente, there are a number of players who can provide excellent test and development environments.

At the University of Twente, leading research of different faculties in turn is clustered in a number of multi-disciplinary spearhead research institutes. Over 80 percent of the research in the faculty EEMCS is part of one of the four engineering spearhead institutes, viz.
