RESEARCH AND SCIENCE
UPB research activities are amongst the top priorities of the university with two of the most important research hubs in the region – The Research Center for Advanced Materials, Products, and Processes - CAMPUS and the Research Center for Intelligent Products, Processes and Services - PRECIS. In terms of research, we are also almost always positioned in the top Romanian research institutions (regardless of the ranking authority).
The Center for Advanced Research on New Materials, Products and Innovative Processes (CAMPUS) is the UPB's advanced research & development center for multi - and inter - disciplinary technologies. CAMPUS is uniquely designed, both from the infrastructure point of view, as well as functionality. It holds a state of the art 7 stories green and intelligent building with unconventional power sources, energy recovery, reuse of resources, and intelligent management systems. The building itself is a working lab. It integrates 42 advanced research and innovation labs, spread over more than 8,000 square meters.
The labs are connected in a complete inter - disciplinary technological flow, starting with the study of materials (chemical engineering), going to electrical engineering and electronics (e.g., circuits, antennas), power and mechanics (e.g., alternative energy sources, environmental protection), and then telecommunications, information technologies (e.g. multimedia processing) and computer science (e.g. artificial intelligence).
The Research Center for Innovative Products, Processes and Services (PRECIS) has as general objective the extension of the current infrastructure and research activities of the university POLITEHNICA of Bucharest, in order to achieve technology transfer and development of products, processes and next-generation services, mainly for industry and health.
28 advanced research and innovation labs, spread over more than 8,000 square meters, are focused on products, processes and services that include intelligent methods and technologies oriented on adaptive and innovative industrial processes, systems for increasing the quality of life, autonomous cognitive systems, cloud services and the future of the Internet, the mobile smart society and digital medicine.
All the research infrastructure aims at using modern technologies for innovation in the management of production processes that contribute to the development of solutions with increased energy efficiency, support for computerized investigations in medicine, interoperability facilities in diagnosis and treatment, monitoring environmental parameters, including hostile environments, the development of computer support for agriculture, food security, the construction of robots for medicine and assistive services.
68 Research Centers
