The ITech expertise unit of the Management & Technology group focuses the know-how present at UC Leuven-Limburg with respect to IT & Technology with the purpose of innovation-driven development in, for instance, the care sector, an important target group for this expertise unit.
In addition to its broad technical background, this expertise unit specialises in the following domains:
- ICT in all its facets (web and mobile applications, security, business, intelligence, etc.).
- Technology in care,
like telecare or telemedicine, but also specific electric or electronic design for the benefit of people with disabilities.
- Big data / Internet of Everything (IoE):
ranging from electronic data capture (including data acquisition) and filtering, to data mining and decision trees, to visualisation of the results so non-specialists can also easily interpret the data. The results obtained can also be added to IoE devices.
Behaviour-driven development: techniques to incorporate the client's wishes into the software development process from the beginning so that the end product meets the expectations in terms of behaviour and functions as well as possible.
Every stage of a project/assignment carried out by this expertise unit incorporates the principle of user-centred design (participative design) to achieve the highest degree of satisfaction and acceptance with the work done.
Services, contract research and custom-made trainings are possible.
