Automation and Mechatronics Engineering

The aim of the Automation & Mechatronics Engineering Team is to support enterprises through engineering expertise in the field of automation, especially manufacturing industries, construction industries and agricultural industries. The AME Team operates in the context of industry-related and pre-development projects in the field of automation and mechatronics. Specifically, these research fields address issues such as flexible manufacturing advanced robotics, sensing & measuring technologies, interfaces & modularity, data security and data safety.

Process Engineering in Construction

The Process Engineering in Construction team focuses its research on the development of innovative, affordable and market-oriented solutions in the following fields: The organisation and the optimization of the construction processes by adapting methods from the industrial sector; The digitalisation and the automation of the design, engineering and construction phases through the use of parametric software and digital technologies.
