About us



The Department of Electronics and Information Systems (ELIS) ​​is one of the largest departments of the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture of Ghent University.

We distinguish ourselves in research and education in the field of electronics, computer science and ICT thanks to the analytical and scientific approach that is translated into concrete technical applications with a high social impact.

The innovative research on these subject is also integrated into our engineering courses, which makes our graduates widely employed inside and outside the IT sector and often start up their own business during or after their studies.
