The Clermont University site includes 24 CNRS units, three INSERM units and two IRSTEA and INRA units. Each year, these different units offer ISIMA students the opportunity to undertake internships and projects covering every field of application in computer science, electronics and applied mathematics. A number of these laboratories operate in fields more closely related to ISIMA:
The Laboratory of Computing, Modeling and Optimisation of Systems has close ties with ISIMA, in terms of both disciplines and human resources, with most of the school’s research professors based there. The unit comprises over 70 research professors, three CNRS researchers, over 70 PhD students and about 20 associates. The laboratory also hosts a chair of regional excellence and industrial chair.
LIMOS’ activities are recognized locally (it is affiliated with two universities in Clermont Ferrand as well as IFMA), nationally (LIMOS is a CNRS mixed research unit) and internationally (it has fostered numerous international research partnerships).
The laboratory’s field of research is oriented towards organisational systems.
A multidisciplinary unit, LIMOS participates in two key research federations (Environment and Mobility) and two Labex (laboratories of excellence):
At these two Labex, ISIMA is involved through projects, internships and doctorates undertaken by alumni.
LIMOS is structured into three departments:
The researchers at LIMOS participate in a broad range of national, international and industrial projects.
Institut Pascal was established from the need of several parties to have a dedicated centre in the field of Engineering Sciences and Systems at the Clermont University site with a national and international dimension. This unit unites into a single structure researchers, research professors and PhD students working in various disciplines related to Engineering Sciences (automation, mechanics, electronics, process engineering) and Fundamental Sciences (physics, biochemistry). The laboratory is organised into four areas
Run by a team of over 60 staff, the laboratory is structured into four research teams:
The largest laboratory on campus, attached to the IN2P3-CNRS, LPC is a key user of mathematical, computing and electronics resources, both for running experiments and managing big data. As such, it has developed an autonomous specialisation in designing cards and circuits for microelectronics.
The IRSTEA unit based at the Les Cézeaux campus conducts research in the following areas:
In all these areas, IRSTEA offers a number of internship and project opportunities for ISIMA students.
