ECIT (The Institute of Electronics, Communications and Information Technology) was established in 2003 at the School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Queen’s University Belfast (QUB).
Its four research clusters cover areas such as System-on-chip, Digital Communications, Speech, Image & Vision Systems and High Frequency Electronics. The Institute is also home to The Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT). CSIT is an Innovation and Knowledge Centre (IKC) and was established in 2009 with over £30M initial funding. It is the UKs largest university cyber security research lab, and is acknowledged by GCHQ as an Academic Centre of Excellence.
ECIT is located at Northern Ireland Science Park, Belfast, and the Titanic Dock is nearly 50 meters away from ECIT main entrance.
