Expertise centre for engineering and quality of systems

The CE-IQS project encompasses several topics in the field of system engineering. Activities are grouped in 5 topics dedicated to methodologies, quality and certification with a technology focus on embedded and distributed systems.


Engineering of complex IT systems 

Data Science 

Scalability of embedded systems and IoT networks 

Co-creation for digital 

Domaine: Software industry 



The purpose of the Centre of Expertise in Engineering and Quality of Systems is to help enterprises successfully anticipate the rapid evolution of the ICT sector through Research and Development (R&D) actions based on strong research topics but also aligned according to the programmatic requirement of enterprises.

CE-IQS covers 5 main topics:

  1. Methodologies for Development and Evolution of systems
  2. Verification, Validation and Quality assessment
  3. Certification
  4. Embedded and Distributed Systems
  5. Intelligent Content and Semantics


The evolution of ICT systems will be studied through the strengthening of methodologies for the complete life-cycle and the integration of Software Product Line engineering. CE-IQS will provide enterprises with methods and tools for improving the control of their systems for the whole lifespan.

Embedded and distributed systems evolve according to the new paradigms induced by the Internet of Things (IoT) and consequently by the technological developments in the areas of intelligent objects, networks, Cloud and Big Data.

Added Value

The project is finely attuned to the ICT enterprises that are encouraged to propose their own Use Cases. The technologies are then implemented and demonstrated on this basis in order to validate their level of maturity and their accuracy in view of practical requirements in the field. Enterprises can then integrate these technologies with better confidence. They can also rely on CETIC and their partners to support and reduce the time-to-market of their products.
