Scientific pillars

Thematic and scientific pillars

The scientific project of the department is based on four pillars as an answer to the strong societal and economical issues covered. These pillars contain important scientific bottle necks but the most salient skills currently available in the department :

  • Models and software tools for the city, transport and networks; 
  • Instrumentation systems and power components;
  • Information systems communicating objects;
  • Automation, control and optimisation of urban systems and transport. 


These pillars support key projects and actions that aim at increasing the efficiency, simplicity, resiliency and service level of cities and transports systems.
