The research unit for computational engineering and science (CES) conducts research related to this relatively new interdisciplinary field.
* Intelligent Informatics and Service Innovation Unit (IISI-U)
The IISI-U integrates fundamentals for solving advanced problems in engineering, science and social issues, and then provides those solutions as services. The IISI research unit contributes to advancement of intelligent informatics fields, such as artificial intelligence, data mining, and soft computing which leads to breakthrough solutions for issues that human factors are significantly involved. These innovations can be used as services to various societies and industries.
* Intelligent Infrastructure (INFRA) Research Unit
Throughout history infrastructures such as transportation systems, water supplies, electrical grids, telecommunication systems, etc. have had large scale impact on society and economy. Nowadays, challenges are how to apply advanced technologies in the digital age to planning, design, operation, and management of infrastructures in smart ways. This could provide in long term the economical, efficient, convenient, comfortable, and environmental friendly way of living.
* Logistics and Supply Chain Systems Engineering (LogEn) Research Unit
Logistics and Supply Chain Systems Engineering (LogEn) Research Unit address cutting-edge supply-chain problems and advanced research in the area of logistics, and supply chain system with the emphasis on optimization, production planning, scheduling simulation, inventory management, forecasting, quality management, lean management and operations management.
* Materials and Plasma Technology (MaP Tech) Research Unit
The Materials and Plasma Technology (MaP Tech) research unit aims to carry out wide areas of research in materials with emphasis on development, designs, computational analysis, manufacturing, testing, and applications of plastics, rubbers, and nanomaterials. The applications of plasma for use in various fields, especially agricultural and biomedical applications are also a main focus.
* Sustainable Energy and Low Carbon (SELC) Research Unit
Challenges of global climate change, energy insecurity and economic growth can only be solved with rapid development of low carbon technologies and management. There are a wide range of technologies at various stages of development that could contribute to energy and environmental goals. However, they are not being developed at the rate required due to a combination of technological, skill, financial, commercial and regulatory barriers.
