The laboratory of Electronics and Computer Engineering embodies the expertise of ENSTA in the areas of electronic architectures, signal and image processing, and robotics. It also largely contributes to ENSTA activities in computer science and engineering .
The research mainly targets actions inspired by applications, mixing concepts, experiments and construction of demonstrators. Exploratory research is also conducted, either originating from fundamental problems in applications, or in the hope of major future innovations. In all cases, the essential philosophy of the laboratory is to conceive its activities in the context of realistic environments , as opposed to a virtual one whose simplifications would minimize the problems met by technologies at the contact of the real world.
The researchers also supervise and contribute to education in the scientific areas of the laboratory, along the whole ENSTA curriculum, and also at the master's and doctoral levels, in particular in collaboration with partner universities.
