Our department’s mission is to generate new knowledge, advance technology and educate highly specialized personnel at different academic levels in instrumentation for measurement science and technology. The department is organized in the following topical research groups: Biomedical Devices; Electronics; Process Engineering; Process Modeling and Simulation; Precision Engineering and Metrology; Sensors; Image Analysis, Visualization and Bioinformatics; Bioinstrumentation and Biomedical, Physical and Computer Imaging. Several of our research groups have state-of-the-art facilities for experimental research and technological services. In addition, the department is home to the National Laboratory for Additive and Digital Manufacturing.

The department’s faculty is composed of researchers and technologists. Both academic figures participate in training new generations of engineers and scientists within the areas of research and development nurtured in the department. Our faculty teaches and supervises students’ research work in the areas of electrical, mechanical and chemical engineering; physics and computer science at graduate and undergraduate levels. We aim at having a dynamic and encouraging environment for students to develop and contribute to measurement science and instrumentation. The department is interested and promotes collaborative research efforts linked with the government and private sectors.
