About us

LEADING IN DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES

 

At the Department of Electronic Systems at Aalborg University, we strive to be internationally recognised as a leader in digital technologies – a department with coherent activities within research, education, development and industry cooperation.

We conduct world-class research in areas ranging from communication, antennas, control systems, AI, sound, cybersecurity and robotics. The department consists of six sections, all delivering outstanding contributions to their field of research.

The department offers a broad range of educational programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels as well as continued professional development.

Our sections and research areas

 

The Department of Electronic Systems is organised in six sections:
