FMDE - Foundations of Model-Driven Engineering
The FMDE group headed by Professor Pierre Kelsen studies the fundamental concepts underlying model-driven engineering. Current research focuses on approaching model-driven engineering from a software language engineering perspective. In this context the main objective is to put the engineering of domain-specific languages on a sound theoretical basis. Limitations of the current crop of formal methods are tackled so that the methods grounded in theory become indeed applicable to industrial case studies.
Besides research in model-driven engineering (MDE) other research interest include applications of MDE in enterprise architecture as well as the design of efficient algorithms.
