Profile
TU/e is one of Europe's leading research universities in engineering science and technology and in the same time a part of the Dutch 3TU-Federation together with Delft University of Technology and the University of Twente.
 
The Electromechanics and Power Electronics (EPE) within the Electrical Engineering Faculty carries out fundamental research on enabling energy conversion theory, methods and technologies on which future developments in electromechanics, power electronics, energy storage and motion systems are depending. In the numerous projects of the EPE group both fundamental and practical aspects are addressed and often a mechatronic system approach is required, in which not only specialists from the fields of electromechanics and power electronics but also from electromagnetics, material science, control engineering, mechanical engineering and thermodynamics are involved.
