30 November - Robotics Technology Symposium



Robotics at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) is a fast growing field of research. The field of robotics is characterized by its multi-disciplinary nature; which makes this both very challenging and interesting.

Developing a robot typically involves mechanics, electronics and computer sciences, but often also physics, mathematics and social sciences. The High Tech Systems Center plays a pivotal role in connecting these disciplines and creating industry-university driven research projects leading to new innovations in robotics.

In this symposium you will Explore & Experience new innovations and Connect with researchers and industry representatives.
