About us

The Department of Instrumentation and Control Engineering (DICE) was established as a fusion of three original divisions in 1998. Cornerstone for this fusion was the Division of Automatic Control which originated in 1958 from the Division of Technical Measurements. This division with its actual educational and research activities represents main integrating trend in the DICE development nowadays.
