With the foundation of ISTEC in 1990, the Initiative for Research & Development (R&D) was created in order to support the processes of education and cutting-edge research in Science, Technology and Innovation. For over 25 years, the R & D initiative, cooperatively working with its members, academia, industry and international agencies, has contributed to the formation of more than one million academicians: students, faculty, and researchers. Supported by the industry, they have installed more than 250 laboratories in areas such as microprocessors, Digital Signal Processing, programmable logic (FPGAs), Wireless Sensor Networks, Nanotechnology, Optoelectronics, Embedded Systems, Instrumentation & Control, Robotics and Medical simulators among others. In addition, the initiative has facilitated academic mobility of students and teachers worldwide.
