We believe that research is the first step towards innovation that can solve problems for people. Therefore, our activities start with basic research and cover the entire value chain via applied research to product development.
We collaborate with companies and clusters and team up with the best players and competences to bring ideas to life. We are always open for new collaboration projects with industry partners.
We organise our research activities in six centres and sections each having a specific research focus. Read more about the research areas, publications, projects and achievements by clicking on a centre or section below.
Centre for Industrial Mechanics (CIM)
With outstanding research within mechanics and mechatronics, CIM will contribute to the development of profound professional competences within disciplines in which regional companies are world leading, including industrial automation, e-mobility, hydraulics, robots and wind turbines.
Centre for Industrial Electronics (CIE)
The Centre for Industrial Electronics (CIE) is a Technology and Research Lighthouse educating the next generation engineers and helping companies in advancing technology leadership.
SDU Electrical Engineering
Power electronics, digital electronics, drives and EMC, reliability studies, advanced failure analysis, acoustics, actuators, electromagnetic compatibility and immunity, control of electrical machines
Control systems, mathematical modelling, embedded software, electronics, digital hardware
SDU Mechanical Engineering (ME)
The section SDU Mechanical Engineering (ME) focuses on issues within mechanical design, structural dynamics, fluid mechanics and heat transmission and also materials technology.
The Drone Mechatronics group is a cross-disciplinary research group established to look at the design and manufacturing problems of unmanned vehicle platforms from aerial and underwater drones to autonomous ships (i.e. “droneships”) and off-road vehicles.
