Welcome to the site of the Department of Information Technology (INTEC).
Our mission is to provide high quality education from ungraduate to postgraduate level based on the excellence of our research. To obtain this excellence on an international level we focus our research effort on carefully chosen domains so as to achieve a critical density in each of them.
- In the physical layer we have a strong focus on nanophotonic components and more particularly silicon photonics.
- In the domain of circuits and systems we have a strong tradition in electromagnetism, acoustics and subsystems for broadband optical access.
- In the area of networks and distributed software, the main subjects are multimedia network architectures and protocols, wireless communications and service delivery architectures.
More details can be found in the websites of the research groups.
An important aspect of our research strategy is to assure the relevance of our research by a close cooperation with industrial partners, often in the framework of European Union projects, and in close cooperation with IMEC and IBBT.
Another cornerstone of our education and research strategy is to instill entrepreneurship and to stimulate spin-off incubation in line with the technology transfer policies of Ghent university.
Finally let me emphasize that the people, students and co-workers, are at the very centre of all our activities and that the success as a department is based on their continuous development on a professional and personal level.
