Technician on MBO/HBO level for PCB design Engineer

Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) is one of Europe's leading research universities.

The Eindhoven area, in the southern part of the Netherlands, is one of Europe's top 'innovation ecosystems', with many high-tech companies and institutes. TU/e is intertwined with many of these companies and institutes, and research at TU/e is characterized by a combination of academic excellence, industrial relevance and societal interweaving.

Eindhoven University of Technology is a community of scientists, supporting staff, students and partners. People are the heart and soul of TU/e, so it is of great importance to safeguard the distinctive Eindhoven atmosphere, creating a personal, welcoming and vibrant environment that enables individuals and groups to grow professionally and personally.

The department Chemical Engineering and Chemistry is one of the nine departments of Eindhoven University of Technology. It was established in 1957, shortly after the university was founded.

The department is located in the Helix and Matrix buildings on the TU/e campus.

Group HIM
Our research team, Human Interactive Materials (HIM), focuses on developing interactive materials to address the evolving needs in specialized medicine, man-machine communication, and miniaturized mechanics. By utilizing smart soft materials, we aim to bridge gaps in current technologies and create new specialized functions. These materials have the ability to adapt their shape, conform to confined and sensitive spaces, and provide their functional duty on location.

One of the key aspects of our research is translating molecular effects into macroscopic phenomena and ultimately into robotic devices. To successfully develop new robotic functions tailored to their intended applications, we adopt a multidisciplinary approach encompassing all aspects from materials design and development to photonics, electronics, and mechanics.  For more information, please visit our website at .
