The Department of Microelectronics and Computer Science (DMCS) was founded by Prof. Andrzej Napieralski in May 1996. The members of the department staff give lectures and run laboratory courses at the Faculty of Electrical, Electronic, Computer and Control Engineering and the International Faculty of Engineering, in Polish, French, and English. The Department cooperates with a wide range of research organizations and academia from all round the world. This international cooperation is constantly strengthened thanks to the MIXDES conference which is organized by DMCS annually starting from 1994.
Several research projects funded by the European Union are realized in the Department. Between 1991 and 2007, 10 Tempus and Copernicus projects were successfully concluded, as well as one sponsored by NATO. Moreover, since 1994 the Department took part in the international project BARMINT realized within the EU research programme Esprit. From 2001 to 2008 two projects within the EU 5th Framework Programme (SEWING and REASON) and one within the 6th Framework (CARE). Currently another 6th Framework project (PERPLEXUS) is approaching the end. The new 7th Framework project (EduMEMS) has just started.

Praca w katedrze
Many PhD projects have been carried on in the Department. So far 61 dissertations have been defended, most of them with distinction. Moreover, six of them received the Polish Prime Minister award, one won the 1999 national competition for PhD dissertations in the domain of system sciences and one has been awarded by the IV Department of Technical Sciences of the Polish Academy of Science in 2005.
From the day of its foundation, in the Department a large number of projects financed by the Polish State Committee for Scientific Research (KBN) have been completed. The Department also maintains constant cooperation with industry in the US, Canada, Germany, and Poland, performing different kinds of contracts.
