The Department of Control and Computer Engineering (DAUIN) includes two specialized centres:

three types of laboratories:

  • The Advanced Teaching and Research Laboratories (LABDAR)
  • The Advanced Computer science Teaching Laboratory (LABINF)
  • The "Rinaldo Sartori" Experimental Teaching Laboratory (LADISPE)

and a library:


The Advanced Teaching and Research Laboratories (LABDAR) are 15 different research laboratories in which the personnel of the DAUIN research groups operate. They are named  LAB 1LAB 2LAB 3LAB 4LAB 5LAB 6LAB 7LAB 9LAB 10LAB 11, ACS LAB, SPS LAB, and Urban Sustainability & Security Laboratory for Social Challenges and VR@POLITO.


The “Advanced Computer science Teaching Laboratory" - LABINF is a teaching laboratory of the Polytechnic of Turin dedicated to students, of the second and subsequent years, who are enrolled in the Course Degrees of the III Faculty (Information Engineering), whose management is entrusted to the Department of Control and Computer Engineering. Users are registered in a domain based on Open LDAP and Samba, which  allows, regardless of the operating system, the personalization of the working environment, the maintenance of personal data and a better administrative control. The sixty-nine available client workstations are connected to the network and are configured in dual boot mode with Windows XP and Linux operating systems. The laboratory is one large open space with 69 PCs, which are used for the lab practice activities, typically assisted by a teacher. Moreover, the students with an laboratory account have open access to the workstations when they are available. The servers of the laboratory are mainly UNIX machines and manage the various services useful to support the operation of the laboratory.


The "”Rinaldo Sartori” Experimental Teaching Laboratory” LADISPE (Control and Computer Engineering Section) is an experimental teaching laboratory that hosts practices about teaching processes, devices, circuits and systems, which exploit electronic instruments and computers. There are “usual” practices, with a well-defined duration, carried out by students independently or with the assistance of teachers, as well as experimental classwork (“tesine”). Finally, there are also demonstration presentations, conducted directly by teachers.  Teaching activities related to the thesis work are also conducted, with a particular emphasis on experimental thesis aiming at producing results directly usable within the same LADISPE. The main courses that use the LADISPE are those of Control Engineering, Computer Engineering, and Operations Research related to the Department of Control and Computer Engineering (DAUIN).
