ECE trains engineers with expertise in major business sectors, in national and international contexts.
The ECE project
The ECE research centre covers a broad spectrum of scientific fields, including both fundamental and applied aspects. Research activities are conducted in three areas at the crossroads of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, Communicating Smart Systems and Mathematical Methods for Scientific and Financial Engineering.
The research centre has initiated an interdisciplinary approach which is currently responsible for a new unifying initiative named PI-ECE (ECE-Lyon Interdisciplinary Program), focusing on Smart City sensors. These activities are being carried out in collaboration with numerous research organisations and ECE students enrolled on the Research Minor and in the Commercial Exploitation of Research & Innovation programmes.
“The challenge today is to encourage the emergence of interdisciplinarity in research.”
Areas of excellence
ECE extends its expertise to the engineering science field on four main themes.
Nanoscience and nanotechnology
Since 2012, the school has been promoting the emergence of themes in nanoscience and nanotechnology, which are of great scientific interest as they address fundamental and applicative aspects, and can be developed with small teams while promoting collaboration with external partners.
The school draws on the expertise of its researchers and research professors in physics and mathematics for applications in the health and energy fields.
Communicating smart systems
In 2014, the ECE launched a project on vehicles of the future, developed by exploiting the school’s long-standing orientations and its expertise at the intersection of three disciplines (information systems, embedded systems and networks), in line with the school’s shift towards application domains such as transport and the environment.
Mathematics for scientific and financial engineering
The goal of the Mathematics for Engineering Sciences team is to contribute to the emergence within the School of a research dynamic in applied mathematics on current research topics. This research group’s activities revolve around two themes: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Simulation, on the one hand, and Financial Engineering, on the other.
Interdisciplinary Programme (PI-ECE)
The challenge is therefore to foster the emergence of an interdisciplinary scientific community. The research centre has initiated an interdisciplinary approach that is currently responsible for a new unifying initiative named PI-ECE (ECE-Lyon Interdisciplinary Programme), focusing on Smart City sensors. These research activities are carried out in collaboration with numerous research bodies such as: LISV, LIGM, TSP, INSP, LCMCP, LLB, and LMNO. ECE students enrolled on the Research Minor and “Commercial Exploitation of Research and Innovation” programmes are also involved in this research programme.
