Aarhus University - Department of Engineering

Aarhus University is a modern research-intensive university. Since its establishment in 1928 the university has rapidly developed into a leading public research university with nationwide and international clout across the entire research spectrum. Over the last decade, the university has consolidated its position in the top 100 of the most influential university rankings. The university places a high priority on a close connection to business and industry, and it takes pride in its engagement in the development of science and society.

The Department of Engineering carries out internationally competitive research and education in the following engineering disciplines: Biological and Chemical Engineering, Civil and Architectural Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, with focus on inventing and creating innovative and sustainable solutions to major science and technology challenges.

The Wireless Transceivers research group led by Professor Domenico Zito, focuses on the design, implementation and test of high-frequency (microwave and mm-wave) integrated circuits and systems for emerging communications, sensing, imaging and computing. This research addresses all aspects from theory, modelling, circuit and electromagnetic design, simulation and experimental characterization, all levels, from devices and components to circuits, systems and applications. It is recognized as a centre of excellence in high-frequency integrated circuits and systems with proven track records including world-first solutions to major scientific and technological challenges and top journal publications in the field, and has extensive collaborations with best-in-class research groups and leading industrial partners world-wide.

Domenico Zito Professor
Department of Engineering - Electrical and Computer Engineering Aarhus University

Professor Zito received the Laurea in electronic engineering and the Ph.D. degree in information engineering from the University of Pisa, Italy, in 2000 and 2004, respectively. Since 2016, he is a Full Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Aarhus University, Denmark, where has established and led the Wireless Transceivers research laboratory. Prior to joining Aarhus University, he was a Visiting Researcher at STMicroelectronics, Catania, Italy, in 2001, and Austriamicrosystems, Graz, Austria, in 2002. In 2005, he joined the University of Pisa, Italy, and in 2009, he joined the University College Cork and Tyndall National Institute, Cork, Ireland, as permanent faculty member. He has authored over 150 papers in peer-reviewed international journals and conference proceedings (30+ invited papers), eight books and book chapters, and holds three patents. His research interests include microwave and mm-wave devices, circuits and systems for emerging data communication, networking, processing and computing, contactless sensing and imaging applications.

He has served as a Technical Programme Committee (TPC) member of the European Solid-State Circuits Conference, TPC Chair of PhD Research In Electronics and Micro-Electronics (PRIME) 2009 and IEEE International Conference on Electronics, Circuits and Systems (ICECS) 2016, Associate Editor for the International Journal of Circuit Theory and Applications, Wiley, Guest and Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I: Regular Papers. He received three best paper awards from IEEE conferences. In 2005 received the Mario Boella (VP URSI) Prize for Research and Innovation in Wireless Technology in Europe. In 2014 was the Start-up Laboratory of the Year Winner at Irish Laboratory Awards. In 2015 received the IEEE Education Society Award for his Distinguished Contributions and Leadership in Engineering Education. Professor Zito has been involved and coordinated several European, national and industrial research and innovation projects. The European projects Proetex and Flares have been recognised by the European Commission as the successful models across the framework programmes.
