  • The provision of postgraduate instruction oriented to professional or research targets.
  • The organisation and provision of specialisation courses, seminars, conferences and other similar events in the context of software and multimedia technologies.

CITSEM was founded in 2011 by three UPM Research Groups: System & Software Technology Group (SYST), Electronic and Microelectronic Design Group (GDEM) and Next-Generation Networks and Services (GRYS). Currently, CITSEM is conformed by two of it is founding research groups (SYST and GDEM) and the Multimedia Applications and Acoustics Research Group (GAMMA), that was incorporated in 2016.

The total number of full time researchers exceeds forty, being all of them comitted to make of CITSEM one of the main actors that reinforces and boost the R+D+I activity performed in UPM South Campus. Moreover, postgraduate and doctorate teaching activities are among the centre's growth interests, and it is engage in the participation of students that will carry out their graduate, master or PhD Thesis related to their R+D+I activities.
