ICICS members from Engineering, Computer Science, Forestry, Earth and Ocean Sciences, Medicine, Psychology, Linguistics, Mathematics, Statistics, Education, Music, and other disciplines conduct collaborative, multidisciplinary research in advanced technologies systems.
Specific research areas include biomedical technologies; robotics and control; virtual machining; signal, image and multimedia processing; wireless communications; nanotechnology; microelectromechanical systems; human - computer interaction; computational intelligence; distributed systems; integrated systems design; computer graphics; and many others.
ICICS facilities, including 8 shared and 38 dedicated labs and a wide range of state-of-the-art equipment, are key to realizing this work. ICICS members' close collaborations with industry ensure that their research is translated to society, guided by the University Liaison Office (UILO).
Since 1987, ICICS has funded ten faculty positions in the three core departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Computer Science, and Mechanical Engineering. Researchers holding these positions are committed to the areas of multidisciplinary research falling under the ICICS umbrella.

ICICS Research Groups
ICICS members participate in research groups with expertise in a range of enabling technologies and complementary behavioural, social, physical, mathematical and life sciences. Innovation flourishes in the ICICS environment where traditional discipline boundaries are made more permeable.
Reflecting the cross-disciplinary nature of the activities of ICICS, individual researchers often participate in more than one research group. For example, a robotics researcher may also belong to research groups specializing in mechatronics, artificial intelligence, and biomedical research.
