The Department of Control Engineering and Information Technology (formerly Department of Process Control) was established in January 1964 at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics. The original focus of research activities was control theory. However, as digital computers and related technologies evolved, our department has become a well respected center of computer applications as well. Current educational and research focus include digital design, software technology and quality, computer graphics, machine vision and image processing, medical informatics, biomedical control systems, control theory and robotics.
