Jessica Joosse and Fabienne van der Weiden | “We want to unleash a revolution in the fashion industry”
Our latest special edition included interviews with eight TU/e pioneers. Too good not to share with you online. Today: ID-students Jessica Joosse and Fabienne van der Weiden want to get rid of fast fashion, produced by child labor.
The first TU/e Christmas market could hardly have got off to a more Christmassy start on Monday, in a 'market hall' surrounded by a thick blanket of snow. The firing of Christmas trees from a cannon, the promised opening activity, unfortunately...
Do you find MetaForum too busy around exams? Does studying at home not appeal to you? Or do you simply need a bit of structure when you're revising? It may well be that the public library at De Witte Dame is the place for you. Under the banner...
Before the year is out, a footpath will emerge from the preparatory earth works currently underway on the grass fields surrounding Luna and Aurora. This will connect the two student flats. In time, a boules pitch and basketball court will be...
Many musicians suffer ear damage by playing their own instruments. Professional orchestras have therefore taken measures in recent years to reduce the sound levels. TU/e studies now reveal that physical measures, like placing screens between sections or creating more space between them, have little effect.
Bus line 104 is proving insufficiently profitable. From December 10 the service will no longer ride over the campus. This has recently been decided by TU/e and the Eindhoven Region Collaborative Alliance (Samenwerkingsverband Regio Eindhoven). The number of employees using the service has been particularly disappointing. The following bus stops will be discontinued: Laplace Square (opposite the Traverse building), De Lismortel (at the corner of Fontys PABO and the Paviljoen), De Rondom across from Differ, and De Rondom Zuid (at the corner of BBC and Echo).
TU/e is involved in all six of NWO's new Perspectief programs; in one case as the program secretary. This program, led by Professor of Embedded System Architectures Henk Corporaal, aims to make self-learning automatic systems – for, say, image recognition – more efficient and transparent by means of deep learning. The other programs should lead to a new 3D printer for large metal components, microscopy without lenses, new bacteria for the chemical industry, injury-free sport and wearable robotics for people with muscular disorders.
On a mountain in Chile's Atacama desert the world's largest optical telescope is currently under construction: the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT). The ELT's primary mirror has a diameter measuring 39 meters and consists of almost 800 segments, each of which is operated using three position actuators. PhD candidate Arjo Bos designed actuators that satisfy the extreme requirements of this giant telescope.
Switzerland is famous for its neutrality, the Alps and the high prices. While the last one is most certainly true (about twice the price of the Netherlands), it is worth the price though. Granted, that Swiss placement fee helps. For four months you can find me in the French speaking Neuchâtel. Here I work at Microcity, an institute of EPFL.

Purple rain will fall tomorrow, on Purple Friday, from the TU/e chimney stack, so that everyone can see that the university recognizes and celebrates diversity in sexual orientation. But as President of the Executive Board Jan Mengelers emphasizes: “Our support is more than symbolic.” University secretary Nicole Ummelen is calling on the LGBTU/e community: “Please be our role models - and let us know if there are matters we can facilitate.”
The Department of the Built Environment has been in existence for fifty years. Yesterday evening this milestone was celebrated in grand style with a festive dinner at Plaza Vertigo attended by more than 350 people followed by a party. Speeches and performances enlivened the evening. Departmental Dean Elphi Nelissen made her speech during the eight-course meal. Live music was provided by Laura Eshuis and Eleven Dirty, while the Superstijl DJs worked the turntables.
Forget about Antwerp, London and Cologne. The only Christmas market worth its salt this year may well be right on your doorstep. It will have everything - from a hearty hotpot and a cup of steaming mulled wine to live Christmas music and the new tradition of firing a Christmas tree from a cannon - and will be right here in MetaForum's market hall from December 11 through 21.
The first TU/e Christmas market could hardly have got off to a more Christmassy start on Monday, in a 'market hall' surrounded by a thick blanket of snow. The firing of Christmas trees from a cannon, the promised opening activity, unfortunately suffered some initial delay - but for anyone who missed it, there was another chance to see it on Tuesday afternoon.
In 2018 the students of TU/e will be represented on the University Council by three parties. The provisional results indicate that newcomer DAS Eindhoven will have two seats, Groep-één remains the largest presence with four seats, and the Eindhoven Student Council (ESR) takes three. For the first time in years, staff faction PUR includes a professor; Anton Darhuber of Applied Physics.
