Research ENTEG Discrete Technology & Production Automation

Discrete Technology & Production Automation (DTPA)

Prof. dr. ir. J.M.A. Scherpen

The mission of the research group of Discrete Technology and Production Automation (DTPA) is to provide a leading education and research environment for students and researchers who are interested in a inter-disciplinary study in engineering, management, computer science, mathematics and engineering sciences in general. The research activities at DTPA focus on developing quantitative and analytical theories and methodologies based on mathematical models for design and control of complex industrial processes and systems. The application area can be found in e.g., robotics, sensor networks, micro-assembly systems, energy systems, mechatronic systems, semi-conductor devices, and space systems. The research of the group is funded by both government agencies and industrial partners. The YouTube channel of the DTPA laboratory gives an impression of the actual experimental research activities.
