Curriculum in Computer Science/Engineering and Control Systems

Research activities in this curriculum cover the domains of: artificial intelligence, automated planning and reasoning, automated diagnosis, knowledge engineering, robotics, human-machine interaction, information systems, data bases, web services and semantic web, security of critical-mission hardware and software systems, analysis and control of linear and nonlinear systems, system identification and estimation, adaptive systems, management and planning of complex systems.


Curriculum in Telecommunication Engineering

Research activities in this curriculum cover the domains of: antennas and microwaves (ultra wideband signal transmission and reception, elettrosmog, …); Digital Signal Processing (wavelets, linear transform families, approximation theory, …); Information Theory (source coding methods, channel coding bounds, ...);  Multimedia Signal Processing (emotion modeling and recognition, face recognition,  image and video compression,  multimedia indexing, multimedia information retrieval, music information classification, watermarking technologies, ...), Optical communications (non linear fiber optics, optical components, …), Nanophotonics (optical antennas, imaging, graphene photonics …), Networking (information security, protocols, traffic classification, ...).


Curriculum in Physical Sciences for Engineering

The research topics deal with matter physics and in particular the development of innovative devices including chemical sensors, biosensors, olfaction systems, field effect emitters, light emitting devices and many others. Metal oxide semiconductors quasi 1D or nanostructured are used successfully for these devices. The ability to control the morphology, crystalline and functional properties of the prepared material may be achieved thanks to the fundamental and functional characterization techniques available.   The intended applications are in the fields of environment, security, human health and food industries. Additional topics deal with nuclear physics, in particular general properties of nuclear forces, particle detectors, data acquisition systems, statistical methods of experimental data analysis, simulation of physical processes and performances of experimental setups, long-term environmental and sanitary effects of radiation.
