Willem Einthoven is the alumni association for graduates of the department of Biomedical Engineering (BmE). Our alumni are graduates from one of the master’s degree programs of the department, the former Biomedical Mechanical Engineering program and graduated PhD students of the department of Biomedical Engineering. The association is named after the Dutch scientist Willem Einthoven, who in 1924 became the first Dutchman to receive the Nobel Prize in Medicine for inventing the electrocardiograph (ECG).
Alumni association Willem Einthoven builds and maintains a network of alumni working in all fields of expertise. Our alumni are among others working in (medical devices) companies, hospitals, at universities and in all other types of engineering roles. All alumni can benefit from this network both professionally and socially. In addition to this, the alumni association is actively involved in career development for the current generation of students and PhD students of the department of BmE.
The alumni association organizes activities for alumni, often in collaboration with the department of BmE and study association Protagoras. A few examples of such activities are:
- Start-up and networking events
- Career development events
- Alumni dinners and drinks
Our LinkedIn and Facebook pages will keep you informed of our activities, relevant vacancies and provide you with information about our members. All members can share messages that may be of interest to other alumni.
