Peter Peters is a lecturer and researcher in the Future Everyday cluster. He leads the TU/e part of the European Horizon 2020 project DoCHANGE and is a member of the ICT committee, the Program Committee, the Joint Program Committee and the teacher’s team for the basic courses. Peters is interested in computer science and electronics, and how these fields can be applied in design. He has deep expertise and extensive practical experience with electronics and software, which he applies throughout the design process. His main areas of interest are medical simulation and improving the quality of life of elderly people, with a focus on the elderly.
However small or big the result, engineers and designers should create products, services and systems that improve the quality of life. All life.
Peter Peters obtained his BSc in Electrical Engineering from Eindhoven University of Applied Sciences in 1980, and then worked as software designer at Philips Communication Industries. He took a position as software designer at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in 1988, and worked there for 11 years. He started studying towards his MSc in Computer Science part-time in 1992 and graduated in 1997. After 3 years of working at the Eindhoven Embedded Systems Institute as a researcher, he returned to TU/e as researcher and lecturer at the Industrial Design department in 2002. This is also where Peters got his PhD in 2014, doing his research into designing a premature baby simulator while continuing to do his other tasks.
