("Bräunl" is pronounced: "Broi-Nell")

In 1991 the Centre for Intelligent Information Processing Systems was established as a Centre for Excellence within The University of Western Australia by founding director Professor Yianni Attikiouzel. In 2003, Professor Thomas Bräunl took over as director of CIIPS.

CIIPS today is run as a research group with member from different academic disciplines and backgrounds, covering areas from electromobility to software design, hardware design, intelligent systems, and robotics. Special emphasis is on engineering system design, developing complete working systems that are of interest for industrial applications.

CIIPS combines an active teaching program with both pure and applied
research to provide an environment in which innovative theoretical developments are rapidly implemented using current technologies to provide solutions to a range of real-world problems.
 

CIIPS has made significant advances in the development of novel intelligent
The Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering Building
systems technologies and has earned recognition both nationally and internationally. For several year, we have participated in student exchange programs with a number of universities in Germany, France, and Norway. This has further strengthened our links for international research cooperation. Strong and successful collaboration between CIIPS and industry is another key element in our long-term aims.

A number of joint research projects with a number of Australian companies have been completed and others are currently in progress. In addition, CIIPS carries out a substantial amount of research and development on a contract basis for a range of industrial companies, government research bodies and other organisations.
