GRECO has for goal the human resources training, and development of
digital systems and of methodologies for the design of such systems.
Its field of work goes from systems specification down to the design
of the digital component itself, including the steps of refinement,
validation and prototyping.
The Computer Engineering Group - GRECO - is composed of 4 PhDs, 2
PhD students, 12 MSc students and 25 undergraduate students (scholars
and volunteers for Scientific Initiation).
GRECO was created in 1993 with the arrival of new PhDs on the
Informatics Department. Its creation stimulated the conception of new
digital systems projects, with new CAD tools for Integrated Circuits
projects installed, new graduate and undergraduate classes and
specialized professionals formation.
Along the years a reasonable number of work stations was installed,
exclusively directed to academic and professional CAD tools, intending
to disseminate the state-of-the-art on the integrated circuits field
in the department and consolidate educational projects with large
companies for the acquisition of educational and research platforms on
the areas of computer architecture and dedicated digital systems.
