The Electronic and Computer Department defines its research areas as follows:
1. Intelligent embedded systems with learning capacity and adaptive behavior
2. Modern technologies for distributed software systems.

Within these areas of research, activities are being conducted on the following research directions:
• Artificial neural networks implemented in FPGA;
• Intelligent sensors;
• Adaptive interfaces;
• Artificial hand gestures recognition system;
• Data acquisition systems using microconverters;
• EMG signal recognition;
• Distributed Systems Security;
• Service Oriented Distributed Systems;
• Multi-agent Systems.

The research directions of the staff of the department fall into the following research directions from the Research Plan of the Faculty of Engineering:
• Intelligent embedded systems with learning capacity and adaptive behavior;
• Distributed software technologies, infrastructures and architectures, service oriented, for the informational society.

Also, the research directions of the department staff, presented above, as well as the theme area fall within the next high priority field formulated by CNCSIS:
Computer and communication technologies

The technological platform it aligns to: Embedded Systems.

The research activity takes place within the research conducted in order to fulfill the PhD thesis requirements, within the post-doctoral activities or based on the research contracts signed between the various research groups, partners and beneficiaries.
The results of the scientific research and the research reports from within the theme area mentioned above are given value through scientific papers published in specialized magazines and scientific bulletins.

The students are also involved in the research activity, through the scientific gatherings organized weekly.

Periodically, the staff of the Electronic and Computer Department organizes:

• The Embedded System Design and Applications, international symposium. The best papers on the ESDA international symposium are published in the Carpathian Journal of Electronic and Computer Engineering magazine;

• The NordTech scientific session, concretized by the works of the National Scientific Symposium, having ISBN level;

• The Students Scientific Works Session, NordTech Student, Electronic and Computer engineering section ;

• Starting with 2004, the local phase of the Interconnection techniques in electronics for Students contest are being organized by us, using computer assisted design software, contest in which the students from Applied Electronics participate. The top 3 qualify for the national phase of the TIE;

• Starting with 2006, the local phase of the Students contest in design with Programmable Logic devices and microcontrollers is organized by our department. The top 3 qualify for the national phase of the DIGILENT contest held in Cluj Napoca.

The research group from within the Intelligent Embedded Systems research lab is affiliated with the following organizations:

• ARIES (The Romanian Association for the Electronic Industry and Software); IEEE;
• Xilinx University Program;
• Xilinx University Program;
• GOSPEL (General Olfaction and Sensing Projects on a European Level).

The professional collaboration connections that the researchers within the Intelligent Embedded Systems Research Lab have with world renown specialists led to the tying of partnerships between IES research group and universities (Bethune France, Cardif UK) as well as major companies within the field (Analog Devices, Irlanda, Xilinx and Digilent from USA, Sinopsys Org. Italy, eASIC Romanian Branch).

Between the North University of Baia Mare and Xilinx Inc. USA there is a partnership developed through the Xilinx University Program (XUP) that started 7 years ago with the purpose of creating a modern research infrastructure that will allow the research group from within the Electrotechnics department of the North University of Baia Mare, the use of the newest hardware and software means targeted to design using programmable logic circuits such as FPGA and CPLD.
