Center for Systems Engineering and Applied Mechanics

Logo Cesame 
The research center CESAME was founded in 1991 as a research center of the School of Engineering in connection with the start of an Interuniversity Attraction Pole in Systems Engineering and Applied Mechanics. In 1997 it was officially recognized as a research center of the school of engineering. Over the years, its research themes have been evolving and covered a broad spectrum of areas such as identification, control and analysis of finite and infinite dynamical systems, complexity theory, robust and fuzzy logic control, biomedical and biochemical engineering, optimization of large dynamical systems, robust and fast numerical algorithms, large graphs and networks, modeling and simulation of turbulent flows, ocean modeling, micro-macro methods for computational rheology, simulation of visco-elastic flows, simulation and control of crystal growth, injection molding, finite element methods, modeling and simulation of deformation, damage and fracture of engineering materials, Lagrangian simulation of flows using vortex particle methods, application of numerical simulation, identification and control methods to industrial processes, to robotic systems, mechanical and electromechanical systems, environmental problems, and biomedical engineering problems.
The center acquired a strong reputation abroad for its work in modeling, simulation and control. In recognition of the excellent fundamental research performed in the center, it was granted several important research contracts (federal, institutional and also international contracts) which also implied a significant growth of the research group. The main research topics gave rise as well to technology transfer since they have a wide range of application areas, including virtually all industrial and production processes, mechanical engineering, robotics, biotechnology, biomedical engineering, telecommunications, and the management of energy resources.
The center was also known for its training of PhD students, via the organization of graduate school courses, colloquia, seminars and workshops. The center hosted a multitude of world class visitors – both short term and long term - who gave such courses and interacted with the PhD students during their visit.
The center has now members that are affiliated with two research institutes: ICTEAM and IMMC. The research institutes are, within the university, the new entities that are designed to keep their shape and structure across time and implement the research policies of their scientific disciplines. In that sense they are the natural entities to organize the research activities within CESAME in the future. But the spirit of CESAME survives, even though its responsibilities have been transferred to the institutes.
