Design for Precision Engineering

The research line Design for Precision Engineering (DPE) of the CST group bundles three focus areas that all draw on the rich heritage of the Dutch school of Design Principles and share a focus on design and realization of state-of-the-art hardware.

The research line has a long-lasting tradition of application driven research in medical robotics, scientific Instrumentation, and a wide variety of industrial applications including semiconductor equipment. Besides resulting in adoption of many of our designs in big science projects and high-tech industries, the emphasis on application driven development of hardware has laid the foundation for various successful start-ups and scale-ups.

The three focus areas are Mechanical Design, Mechatronic Systems Design, and Opto-Mechatronics, which work together closely. For more specific information on each of the focus areas, please click the links underneath.
