Research

In addition to teaching, the EEBE's other major line of activity is research, innovation and knowledge transfer. In total, 26 research groups and cross-disciplinary research units will be located there. Two research groups are integrated in the UPC's Innovation and Technology Centre (CIT UPC) and are members of the Catalan government's TECNIO network.

Building A

In addition to its teaching facilities, the 12-storey EEBE building houses the following 13 research groups in various fields of engineering (biomedicine, electricity, electronics, industrial automation, energy, materials, mechanics and chemistry):

  • Impact Biomechanics (GRAB)
  • Control, Dynamics and Applications (CoDAlab)
  • Manufacturing and Materials Development (DEFAM)
  • Electrical Energy, Power Electronics, Automation and Systems Control (E3PACS)
  • Surface Interaction in Bioengineering and Materials Science  (InSup)
  • Sustainability, Technology and Humanism (STH)
  • Sustainability in Distributed Generation and Renewable Energy (SGDER)
  • Systems Telemanagement (GReTS)
  • Multimedia Applications and ICTs Laboratory (LAM)
  • Numerical Analysis Laboratory (LaCàN)
  • Combinatorics and Discrete Potential Theory for Network Parameter Control (COMPTHE)
  • Signal Analysis and Interdisciplinary Systems in Engineering (LASSIE), belonging to the Research Centre for Biomedical Engineering (CREB) which is a TECNIO centre
  • Technological Development Centre of Remote Acquisition and Data processing Systems (SARTI).
