Eindhoven University of Technology is situated in the heart of Europe's leading innovative top technology region Brainport in the South-East of the Netherlands.
We are an ambitious, innovative and fast growing university combining leading-edge scientific research with attention to professional development and personal growth.
The department Mechanical Engineering at the TU/e educates Bachelor and Master of Science students (BSc/MSc), EngD (Engineering Doctorate) and PhD students. In addition to this, we carry out cutting-edge research in many domains such as Energy and Flow, Materials and Mechanics and Systems, Dynamics and Control. Much research is done in close cooperation with large high-tech companies, such as Philips and ASML, as well as many small/medium enterprises.
The department aims to maintain and extend its international forefront position, and strives for strong international cooperation. We offer a challenging and inspiring atmosphere, where we work together to solve socially relevant problems.
Vacancies in our department
PhD Optimal Control of Hydrogen-powered Electrified Aero Engines
We are seeking two highly motivated PhD students who are interested in pursuing research at the interface of control systems and optimization for clean aviation technologies. Electrified airplanes promise to enable clean and fast mobility alternatives to current kerosene-powered solutions, but their…
