Research Groups

SMU Research groups are built to interact and identify challenges and explore new insights to co-produce high quality research. These groups also bring together faculty and research students with similar research interests to develop ideas, undertake projects and share expertise. 

The main idea behind the work of these Research groups is to value the contribution of SMU to organizations. They are built to interact and engage with industry, build partnerships, identify challenges and explore new insights to co-produce solutions for them.

Since its creation in 2018, Software Improvement Laboratory (SIM) has been dedicating its efforts to all software engineering activities from developing, designing, and testing the software to researching new techniques, approaches and technologies.  

In the broad field of Software Engineering, the main research areas SIM focuses on are: 

  • Software verification and validation 

  • Software Refactoring 

  • Software Measurement 

SIM’s interests include collaborating with large industrial players. One of its major collaborations is with Sama Partner, a German IT company.
