School of Information Technology

The School of Information Technology is a strong research and education environment, with focus on smart technology and its applications. Students and researchers are working with everything from autonomous vehicles to social robotics with collaboration between humans and robots.

About ITE

The School of Information Technology offer education on all levels, from undergraduate to PhD education. The research is conducted within our research environment Embedded and Intelligent Systems (EIS). We are a multicultural school with employees from over 20 different countries.

We prepare future innovators!

The School for Information Technology is organised into two departments and four technology area, with responsibility for research and education within its area:

Research

The research at the School is conducted within the research environment Embedded and Intelligent Systems (EIS).

Professional development

Professional education within AI

The School of Information Technology provides the programme “Data Analytics and Service Innovation based on Artificial Intelligence” (MAISTR). It is directed towards professionals who want to get continued education in Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies. The program has unique aspects by combining courses on both AI technology and courses on service design with AI.

Department CERES

CERES is short for Computing and Electronics for Real-Time and Embedded Systems and is one of the School of Information Technology's two departments.

CERES conduct research and education within two Technology Areas:

Head of department CERES: Walid Taha

Deputy head of department CERES: Pererik Andreasson

Technology Area Smart Electronic Systems

Technology Area Smart Electronics Systems focus on the challenges and opportunities that the ongoing digitisation of society entails. Embedded electronics are available in everything from smart everyday gadgets to robots and cars. Smart electronics are developing at a rapid pace and the possibility of new innovations is great.

Research

We have ongoing research on antenna design, electromagnetic interference and compatibility, nanoelectronics and photonics, radar and radio systems, high performance computing architectures, and building practice for components and systems.

Technology Area System of Cyber Physical Systems

When the Internet of Things (IoT) contains sensors, it becomes an example of something called cyber physical systems (CPS), such as intelligent houses, smart electricity networks and intelligent transport systems. This is the focus of Technology Area Systems for Cyber Physical Systems.

Research

We develop model-based methods that enable innovations within CPS. New methods are developed for specification, simulation and testing. Applications include robotics, transport systems and healthcare systems. Read more about the Technology Area's research under the research environment Embedded and Intelligent Systems (EIS):

Research environment EIS, Technology Area Systems for Cyber Physical Systems

Education

The Technology Area is responsible for carrying through and developing courses within Computer Communication, Computer Science, Computer Systems Engineering, Parallel Architectures and Real-Time Systems.

Technology Area Leader: Wojciech Mostowski

During the period 2003 to 2015, research was conducted in this area at the Center for Research on Embedded Systems (CERES).

Department ISDD

ISDD is short for Intelligent Systems and Digital Design and is one of the School of Information Technology's two departments.

ISDD conduct research and education within two Technology Areas:

Head of department ISDD: Stefan Byttner

Deputy head of department ISDD: Jesper Lund

Technology Area Digital Service Innovation

At Halmstad University, we profile Informatics towards Digital Service Innovation (DSI). This implies a focus on how value is created for users, organisations and societies through combining, re-combining and integrating resources into digital services.

Research

The research in the field combines theories (identification of models, patterns, structures, relationships, processes) with applied and action-oriented research in collaboration with industrial and public partners.

Technology Area Aware Intelligent Systems

The goal at the Technology Area Aware Intelligent Systems is to create systems that require less supervision and can handle unexpected situations. To do so, the systems must become more aware and develop themselves in order to be able to handle events that are unknown at the time of design.

Research

Our research is carried out in close collaboration with industrial partners and is largely about development within artificial intelligence (AI). The focus is on creating systems that, as autonomously as possible, can be developed based on real-life data.

Research environment EIS, Technology Area Aware Intelligent Systems

Education

The Technology Area is responsible for carrying through and developing courses within artificial intelligens, image analysis, learning systems, mechatronics systems, signals and systems, and control theory.
