Enabling technologies

Enabling technologies correspond to leading approches in engineering R&D, ranging from the most theoretical (ideation and design) to the most tangible and/or pratical (materials characterization, nanotechnologies). In turn, these three domains, which are of competitive interest to all business sectors, encompass various categories of activities.

Engineering sciences
• Ideation and design
• Modelling, simulation, analysis, optimization
• Operations management, production management, supply chain management
• Project management, life cycle analysis, certification
• Innovation management
Software and computer applications
• Software engineering, security, biometry, surveillance
• Multumedia: AI, computer graphics, interfaces, video, vision, voice, digital documents
• Maintenance, quality, embedded systems
Materials and fabrication
• Product development and prototyping, manufacturing process optimization
• Manufacturing systems, robotics, automation
• Machine dynamics and vibration
• Machine components (pressure tanks, seals, tribology and gears)
• Fabrication; clean, high-speed and high-performance machining
• Characterization of materials and in situ testing; development of advanced materials
• Nanotechnologies
