Department Department of Engineering

Over 100 years of engineering research experience in Luxembourg

Seven research areas and 18 labs under one roof

Our research combines classical engineering disciplines – civil, electrical, mechanical – and more contemporary interdisciplinary themes, including computational engineering, digital twins, sustainability, water management, transport optimization, energy, and resource management. Many of our subjects address environmental issues, energy transition, and more generally prepare for Industry 4.0. We use four methodologies: theoretical, experimental, digital, and data-driven.

Tackling sustainability challenges through science and engineering

A skilled, dynamic, and stimulating research environment

In 2016, Luxembourg celebrated the 100th anniversary of engineering within the Grand Duchy.’s Department of Engineering is the heir to this longstanding tradition. Today our research tackles complex problems that encompass seven interdisciplinary areas:

  • Civil & Environmental Engineering
  • Computational Engineering & Sciences
  • Electrical & Communication Engineering
  • Energy Technology & Engineering
  • Geophysics, Geodesy & Geospatial Science
  • Manufacturing & Material Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering

Our Department contributes to shaping the industrial environment in Luxembourg and the Greater Region, as evidenced by the Arcelor Mittal Chair of Steel Construction collaboration, the Paul Wurth Chair in Energy Process Engineering, and the existence of an industrial board within the DoE. We also interact with local administrations. This active interplay accelerates project turnaround, while also providing our students with a rich network for internships and future employment. DoE members have access to many cutting-edge testing facilities, HPC, etc. Active partnering with foreign universities completes this offer.
