Electrical and Information Technology
The Department of Electrical and Information Technology conducts high-quality research around a number of different areas in electrical engineering and computer science, and the activities span large parts of the IT area.
About 100 people are active divided into six research laboratories. These are Broadband Communication, Communication Engineering, Electromagnetic Theory, Integrated Electronics Systems, Nanoelectronics, and Network & Security. Each lab consists of one or more research groups and between different research groups, the department also runs several centres of excellence.
The Department of Electrical and Information Technology (EIT) is a major academic platform that interacts with and supplies the regional industry in telecommunications, IoT, the automotive industry, network video and more. The continuous transfer of EIT research and EIT engineers to companies such as Ericsson, Sony, Bosch, Axis and other important high-tech companies is a very important bridge of knowledge between regional academia and industry. The effect of this in the form of new standards, products and services is significant.
If you read more about the EIT's research, you will find answers to questions such as: "Who invented Bluetooth?" or "How can your cell phone save you from an avalanche accident?"
