Research groups are basic structures for the development of research activity. They are the result of the free and voluntary grouping of researchers who carry out ─due to coincidence of objectives, infrastructures and shared resources─ in a coordinated and regular way research tasks in a reduced number of common, related or complementary areas.

The groups are committed to stability, consolidation, joint work and sustainable financial capacity. This collaboration that may result in better treatment and higher performance of scientific or technical work.

Currently in the School of Telecommunication Engineering there are about 20 research groups working in different fields and areas:
