Master of Science Mechanical Engineering

Meng Zhihui

“I’m working on a prediction model for head injuries of pedestrians in car accidents. Optimizing the model will drastically reduce the computational time for injury prediction. I like that this project is really useful, since I imagine car manufacturers will be eager to use it to design safer cars. I came to Eindhoven for the Mechanical Engineering program itself. You can tailor-make your own program, which is motivating but challenging. Teachers at TU Eindhoven are really helpful and easy-going. If you have a question, they’ll always find time for you. Many courses involve practical exercises such as assignments or experiments; it’s not just theory, lectures, and exams. I’ve acquired a lot of abstract and highly specialized knowledge since starting university, and that’s broadened my career options.”
