Department of Electrical Engineering (ISY)

The department of Electrical Engineering (ISY) is central to the engineering education at the Institute of Technology, one of four faculties at Linköping University, and this regards both basic and applied knowledge.

Several new companies have evolved from research at the department, but the research has also been instrumental in the established industry through all former graduated students and engineers now employed. The basis for all this has been the strong connection and good interplay between education, research, and the world outside the university.

Undergraduate education

The department offers about 100 different courses in four main areas: Control Systems, Electronics, Image processing, and Telecommunications.

List of all courses (in Swedish)

Research and postgraduate education

The research is based on industrial needs, and ranges from basic research to direct application in collaboration projects.

Research and postgraduate education is pursued in the divisions: Automatic Control, Communication Systems, Computer Engineering, Computer Vision, Information Coding, Integrated Circuits and Systems and Vehicular System.
