Research ENTEG About the institute


ENTEG is a research institute within the Faculty of Science and Engineering. The ambition of the institute is to become a national and international leading engineering science and technology institute with a research focus on the design of new (sustainable) products and production concepts and to the control of the production processes. We strive to be recognized for the capability to explore and design new technologies, and to improve existing ones, that are based on the integration of fundamental and engineering sciences in a comprehensive environment.

ENTEG currently houses 20 scientific staff members and 4 part-time honorary professors. Scientific staff are embedded in 10 research units. Each research unit has between 1 and 3 scientific staff members, is headed by a full professor (chair) and some units have additional honorary scientific staff members. An overview of the research unit and the chair of the unit is given in the Scheme below.
