Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands
Industrial Design Department - 2 PhD positions
Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) intends to be a research driven, design oriented university of technology at an international level, with the primary objective of providing young people with an academic education within the ‘engineering science & technology’ domain. In the field of teaching, the TU/e regards it as its task to train engineers (at Master of Science level) possessing a sound scientific basis and depth of knowledge, as well as the necessary competences that will enable them to develop successful careers in a wide range of fields and functions within the community.
The university also trains designers (at Professional Doctorate in Engineering level) and researchers (at Doctor of Philosophy level), as well as first degree teachers in the exact sciences (at Master of Science level). The Bachelor’s programs (BSc) are intended to serve as a basis for further education at Master’s level. In addition, the TU/e provides postacademic programs and courses through the TiasNimbas Business School. In the research field, the TU/e prefers to focus within the ‘engineering science & technology’ domain on the specific areas in which it takes or can take a significant role in the international scientific world, and in which it can make meaningful contributions to the knowledge-intensive industries and other sectors of the community with a high, or rapidly developing, technology intensity.
