The research portfolio of the EEMCS faculty consists of five themes: Telecommunications, Microelectronics, Electrical Power Engineering, Intelligent Systems and Applied Mathematics. Each of the themes has substructural research programmes.
There is a lot of synergy between groups that are more technological and groups that are more practical orientated. The goal is to contribute in finding technological answers to questions deriving from social and academic developments. Both fundamental and applied science are regularly crossed in order to obtain the best result. Multi-disciplinary research is stimulated. Naturally, the main concern is to invent new concepts and to explore the technology to make things possible. The research in Delft – in close collaboration with the industry and knowledge institutes - has often led to new products. This faculty participates in a lot of research schools and institutes and in most of the Delft Centres. The EEMCS faculty is the basis for the Delft Centre for ICT and the Delft Centre for Computational Science and Engineering.
