Design of devices that combine, within a limited space, their own energy source, dedicated electronics and software, and the protocol stacks required for connectivity. 

The School of Engineering of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland - Valais has considerable know-how in embedded systems and instrumentation that has continually been refined in the last three decades. It has become the "everything low systems" laboratory of the HES-SO Valais-Wallis.

Applied Research & Development

"Everything low systems" are systems with a minimum of resources: size, power consumption, mechanical dimensions, manufacturing costs and of course handling complexity. The multidisciplinary methods to handle such complex systems have been researched and developed within industrial grade projects and include:

  • Model-based systems engineering combining mechanical, electrical and software aspects
  • Integrated and automatic power management
  • Wire-based and wireless communication
  • Microelectronics
  • Instrumentation
  • Micromechanics

Teaching & Training

The Bachelor’s and Master’s courses at the HES-SO Valais-Wallis are inspired by state-of-the-art technological achievements resulting from projects to ensure that the future engineers have the latest professional know-how. 

Industrial grade courses are offered to the ISI project partners as a standard feature in order to achieve an in-depth transfer of know-how.
