Impact the future of healthcare, get involved!

e/MTIC Honors Program

Are you interested in MedTech innovation and do you want to develop yourself in an multidisciplinary environment were university, industry and hospitals join forces? Then the e/MTIC master honors program might be of interest to you.


In the Eindhoven MedTech Innovation Center (e/MTIC) the TU/e, Philips and three local hospitals (Catharina Hospital, Máxima MC and Kempenhaeghe) have united to accelerate clinical innovations. In e/MTIC there are over 100 PhD, PDEng, and MSc. researchers working on healthcare solutions in the domains cardiology, perinatology and sleep. To develop your talent in this multidisciplinary ecosystem, e/MTIC offers master students to join the e/MTIC Honors Program.


The core of the program is a 6-month innovation team challenge at Philips in close collaboration with the clinical partners. In these “bench-to-bedside” projects a real life clinical problem is tackled by a multidisciplinary team of honors students and e/MTIC supervisors.


This new honors program offered at the TU/e will start in the first semester of the 22/23 academic year. More information about the program can be found here.


Students that want to participate in the e/MTIC honors program should first be admitted to the TU/e honors academy. You can find information about application to the honors academy here. The deadline for this application is September 19 2022.

Vitality Hub projects

To monitor and enhance vitality in the workplace has become a very important need to which (electronic) technology can contribute. By integrating sensors (and potentially feedback) in furniture and objects in the workplace employees can supported in a comfortable, unobtrusive way. Imec and TNO at Holst Centre are developing technologies which can support this by measuring vital signs in an office chair. This has resulted in two separate systems with first prototypes available. The next step would be to investigate the possibilities to combine these two systems into one and integrate these into a single chair. The project asks for students of different backgrounds and will therefore be a multidisciplinary approach.
