Thomas More is the largest university college in Flanders, offering over 30 bachelor programs in the province of Antwerp. In BIOArt, the department of Electronics – ICT of Campus De Nayer was involved. This department has great experience in education in the field of embedded systems, both on the local level as in an international context. The dynamic team embeds new technology and principles in their educational process. Moreover, all personnel takes an active role as researcher in the EmSys Research Group, a research group specialized in the development of embedded hardware and software; and in embedded system development and integration.
