Protagoras is the study association for all programs offered by the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the TU/e. The study association is for students of both majors within the Bachelor's program, Biomedical Engineering and Medical Sciences and Technology, as well as for the Master's programs Biomedical Engineering and Medical Engineering.
Its purpose is foremost to represent students at the education institute. One of the board members of Protagoras is Commissioner of Education. This board member is constantly cooperating with students and teachers to try to improve education. Besides that, every quarter students can order their books at the official book site, and Protagoras has a database of old exams and summaries on their website.
Another aspect which Protagoras is working on, is giving students the opportunity to develop themselves in other areas than just their studies. For example, they have about 20 committees that you can join. A symposium is organized every year, and throughout the year there are various lectures and excursions at companies. In this way students can get a better view on what role they can play in the biomedical engineering business after their studies.
Furtermore, the association is of course also home to sociability. In the society area, the Prothok, students can relax and have a lunch. Every Thursday there is a get-together in the 'In Vivo' meeting place to drink a beer together. All these activities are organized for students, by students.
