Our mission is to contribute to the state-of-the-art of smart systems and system of systems engineering to support innovations in the life sciences application domains. Hereby, we focus on software engineering, knowledge engineering and socio-technical systems engineering.
We offer a variety of courses at BSc and MSc level that are taken by students from all study programmes of Wageningen University & Research. The courses are aligned to our overall objective for realizing smart system engineering. In parallel with our courses we offer interesting MSc and BSc thesis assignments. Further, we have an active PhD programme in which research is carried out in close collaboration with the life sciences application domains.
The INF group aims to take the important role of supporting the research necessary for engineering of smart software-intensive systems for the life sciences application domains. To this end, we adopt a system engineering approach that is necessary for the analysis, design, testing, and management of complex smart systems. This implies a holistic multidisciplinary approach that aims to integrate data, software, hardware, people and processes within the organizational, institutional and societal context
