Department of Computer Engineering was established in 1966.
Currently the department is coordinating and EU’s Horizon2020 Research&Innovation Action IMMORTAL – Integrated Modelling, Fault Management, Verification and Reliable Design Environment for Cyber Physical Systems (2015-2018), and EU’s H2020 TUTORIAL: Mutual learning to enhance scientific excellence in nanoelectronics based dependable cyber-physical systems. The Department also participates in EU’s FP7 research project BASTION – Board and SoC Test Instrumentation for Ageing and No-Failure-Found (2014-2016).
Previously the department has been coordinating the European FP-7 REGPOT project Centre of Research Excellence in Dependable Embedded Systems - CREDES (2009-2011), the European FP-7 ICT project Diagnosis, Error Modelling and Correction for Reliable Systems Design - DIAMOND (2010-2012), and the Centre for Integrated Electronic Systems and Biomedical Engineering - CEBE (2008-2015).
The main activities for the department are:
- Organizing computer hard- and software related studies
- Research in the fields of complex computer systems, their desing, diagnosics, testing, and software development
- Cooperation with universities and enterprises
- Curricula development and modernization of lab equipment
The department is organized around three chairs:
- Chair of Computer Systems Test and Verification - head prof. Raimund Ubar
- Chair of Computer Systems Design - head prof. Peeter Ellervee
- Chair of System Software - head prof. Ahto Kalja
