Research and education activities of the department deal with system sciences in the field of electrical energy systems. They are organized in two themes :
The research activities of the department are organized in four domains :
Research work in each of these domains is realized by diverse means: student projects, industrial studies, undergraduate internships, doctoral work, or research managed by the permanent staff.
There are close ties among the various research themes, which permit good cohesion between the researchers. The department is also open to working with other research groups, whether inside or outside of France, not only in the domain of electrical engineering but also in other areas (economics, biology, chemistry), which permits both the combination of the competences of the department with those of other external groups in their respective domains, and also the estimation of the positioning of the research work as related to the work being done nationally and internationally.
