The Eindhoven University of Technology is a university of technology located in Eindhoven, Netherlands. The motto of the university is: Mens agitat molem (The mind brings matter into motion). The university was the second of its kind in the Netherlands, only Delft University of Technology existed previously. Until mid-1980 it was known as the Technische Hogeschool Eindhoven (abbr. THE). In 2011 QS World University Rankings placed Eindhoven at 146th internationally, but 61st globally for Engineering & IT. Furthermore, in 2011 Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) rankings, TU/e was placed at the 52-75 bucket internationally in Engineering/Technology and Computer Science ( ENG ) category and at 34th place internationally in the Computer Science subject field. The Eindhoven University of Technology was founded as the Technische Hogeschool Eindhoven (THE) on June 23, 1956 by the Dutch government. It was the second institute of its kind in the Netherlands, preceded only by the Delft University of Technology. It is located on its own campus in the center of Eindhoven, just north of the central station.

Cell chatter tells story of arterial thickening

Arteries can become thicker due to high blood pressure. However, the cause of this thickening is unclear. TU/e researchers along with colleagues from Trinity College Dublin in Ireland have developed a new computer model to ...

Artificial skin sweats on command

Following the breakthrough with their first sweating artificial skin two years ago, Danqing Liu's multidisciplinary team hasn't been sitting still. Their goal: an artificial skin that sweats as naturally as possible. They ...

Biomaterials for kidney organoid–based regenerative therapy

With the discovery of synthetic stem cells, better known as induced pluripotent stem cells, the field or regenerative medicine has been revolutionized. These synthetic stem cells are created by reprogramming adult cells from ...

Predicting the phase stability of soft matter

Soft matter is an important class of materials that typically consists of colloidal particles and/or polymers in a liquid medium. For certain compositions, these types of systems tend to (micro-)phase separate and unmix into ...

Evaluating new processing platforms for pharmaceutical production

The pharmaceutical industry is one of the most relevant sectors in today's economy. For more than a century, pharmaceutical production has relied on batch production, but this lacks the agility, flexibility, and robustness ...

Atomically thin semiconductors for nanophotonics

Atomically thin semiconductors such as molybdenum disulfide and tungsten disulfide are promising materials for nanoscale photonic devices. These approximately 2D semiconductors support so-called excitons, which are bound ...

Triggering microscale self-assembly using light and heat

Self-assembly is the spontaneous organization of building blocks into structures or patterns from a disordered state. Everyday examples include the freezing of liquids or the crystallization of salts. These self-assembly ...

Toward 4D printing with structural colors

The colors in the world around us are produced through either absorption of light by molecules (pigmentary colors) or scattering of light by nanostructures (structural colors). Nature provides many spectacular examples of ...

Better understanding of people's comfort in urban public spaces

Comfortable urban public spaces play an important role in shaping healthy behaviors and raising well-being among citizens. Given the context of climate change, unplanned urbanization, and the worldwide air-borne pandemic, ...
