Research Area

The central motive of the IoT program is to form partnerships between academics and industry in system-oriented research and technology transfer areas that are critical for the nation’s economic growth. As it is clearly stipulated on the 5-year strategic documents of the IoT, Technology Capacity Accumulation and Transfer (TeCAT) is the key responsibility to be addressed and realized.

Therefore, the IoT has selected key research and technology competences areas based on their potential to support research projects, graduate programs and international standards. The Institute is confident that academic staffs and students will diligently contribute throughout the cycle of technology creation, development and implementation activities, which has special institutional and national interest.
