For decades, the UG has been the only generalist research university in the Netherlands to offer degree programmes that result in a vocational engineering qualification (ir.). These programmes include applied research. This technological profile will now be strengthened by new investment by the Board of the University and the founding of the Groningen Engineering Center. This new phase will be marked by a symposium on 25 October where businesses and researchers will be able to meet each other.
The Groningen Engineering Center (GEC) will operate within the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences and concentrate all of the applied research at the UG. Members of the ENTEG research Institute (Engineering and Technology institute Groningen) will be joined by researchers in biochemical and chemical engineering and industrial/mechanical engineering, for example from Biomedical Engineering (UMCG), Computer Engineering, Applied Mathematics and Applied Physics, including the 2016 Spinoza prizewinner Bart van Wees. The GEC will also comprise biologists, pharmaceutical researchers, business scientists, economists and social scientists.
