Institute of Electronics, Communications & Information
ECIT's purpose and R&D strategy
The Institute has "state of the art” research facilities to advance the science and technology essential for a digital world. Research undertaken along three themes essential for the development of flexible, robust and secure digital manufacturing systems, i.e. the Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT); the Centre for Data Science and Scalable Computing (DSSC); and the Centre for Wireless Innovation (CWI).
Answering a global need
As the world goes digital, we must find new ways to process and protect the huge volumes of data we are creating. With an estimated 2.3 billion people across the globe relying on devices and the cloud to communicate, manage finances, access healthcare and even interact with household devices, new technological challenges are emerging every day.
At ECIT, our researchers are on a mission to make this changing digital space both safer and faster. Our experts are always one step ahead and are developing cutting-edge solutions to communicate even faster but in a safe and secure way. We are problem solvers, using our unique insight to come up with innovative ways to collect and store the huge volumes of data being created and shared across the globe every single day.
At the unique research and innovation centre academics, students, engineers and business development staff are working closely with world-leading companies and entrepreneurs, taking a business focused and entrepreneurial approach to tackling three areas of the global challenge.
