About

The influence of technology in healthcare and well-being is apparent in many domains, starting from hospitals, home-healthcare, elderly assisted living and extending to healthcare related well-being applications, such as disease prevention, activity monitoring, fitness and (top-) sports programs and balanced lifestyle. 

The design of professional and consumer health and wellbeing systems is an interdisciplinary process that requires in-depth understanding of the technical aspects as well as of the user requirements. Typically such a process is performed in an interdisciplinary team, where each team member brings in his/her own expertise and a good understanding of the field of the other team members.

Careers

After successfully completing all parts of the Healthcare Systems Design programme offered by Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) students will receive a certified diploma. A certified PDEng has in-depth knowledge of design processes, theoretical as well as practical, which clearly distinguishes him/her from a ‘normal’ MSc. 

They have found challenging and exciting jobs in (multi)national companies, including:

  • Philips
  • NXP Semiconductors
  • ASML
  • Océ
  • Ericsson
  • Infineon
  • TNO
  • Vodafone

and many Small to Medium-sized Enterprises (SME’s).
