Bachelor or Master Thesis: Shape memory microactuators in silicon technology

  The Institute for Microstructure Technology (IMT) develops micro- and nanoactuators using smart materials. Among the class of smart materials are shape memory alloys (SMAs) which show multifunctional properties including the shape memory effect, thermal and structural effects. This enables the development of novel bi-stable actuators on the micro- and nanometer length scale, which are of special interest for applications in small space, e.g., in micro optics, photonics and micro robotics. The aim of this Bachelor/Master thesis is to develop, fabricate and characterize SMA-based microactuators using cleanroom techniques. Your tasks: CAD and numerical simulations (COMSOL multiphysics) Characterization of SMA material properties (structure, mechanical, thermal) Micro- and nanofabrication of functional devices using clean room technology (electron beam lithography, reactive ion etching). This work will be supported by experienced cleanroom staff. Experimental characterization of actua

Internship, Bachelor- or Masterthesis: App Development for Android, use of slow control board, evaluation of driver electronic up to 20 GHz

  Within the thesis, the student will build the GUI for Android in Kotlin in cooperation with a second person. The student will start with a given functionality, which includes the communication via universal serial bus (USB). Once the GUI successfully developed, the student will use the GUI and evaluate the driver electronics in terms of impedance, gain, bit error rate and eye diagram. The results will enable the user to work with system and exploit several different modes such as automatic and manual mode. Starting date 1.

Internship: Methods and Tools for Parallel Energy System Simulation

Image
  IEK-10 focuses on the optimal design and operation of integrated, decentralized energy systems with a high share of renewable energy. Computer simulation and numerical optimization are our essential tools to arrive at efficient, reliable and cost-effective solutions. We contribute both to the development of mathematical models and to the development of improved simulation methods and optimization algorithms. Our methods and software-tools are validated against operating data of real systems. Furthermore, we conduct comprehensive case studies in order to test and further improve the scalability and the performance of our models and algorithms. Specially adapted methods and codes enable us to exploit the potential of high performance computing with the aim of solving particularly large and complex problems. Scope of the Internship: A successful energy transition requires new and efficient simulation methods for large scale power systems, also illustrating interactions between differ

PDEng Traineeship Designer Bioprocess Engineering

Image
  In the Designer in Bioprocess Engineering programme, you develop yourself into a visionary team-player with a state-of-the-art background in biosciences and chemical engineering, prepared for innovative bioprocess design. You gain business knowledge, e.g., economical evaluation and project management, to evaluate the implementation of developed processes in an industrial environment. Throughout the programme, you are trained to develop and apply an independent attitude, a critical approach, creativity and a focus on innovative application in the interdisciplinary field of Biochemical Engineering. The biotech industries in the Netherlands and abroad value graduated Designers in Bioprocess Engineering and offer them a range of careers in all facets of bioprocess development. In the first year, PDEng-trainees take mandatory courses and a personal selection from advanced courses in fermentation technology, microbiology, downstream processing, environmental biotechnology, or biocatalys

PDEng Traineeship Chemical Product Design

Image
  The PDEng traineeship “Chemical Product Design” focuses on the development of structured materials, formulations, and devices for the specialty chemicals, personal care, health care, food, semiconductor, and energy sectors. During the traineeship you deepen your domain knowledge in specific areas, strengthen your engineering skills, and acquire know-how about designing these innovative products and bringing them to the market. Most of the introductory year is dedicated to advanced training and workshops in engineering design, socio-economic aspects of design, and professional and business skills. The emphasis will be placed on the technical integration of disciplines, engineering design in an industrial context, and the recognition of the role technological product design plays in society. The first year will be concluded with a Group Design Project (GDP), in cooperation with industry. Besides the core programme you can select elective training modules. The second year of the trai

Master thesis/Intership: Tuning aggregation of red blood cells and the shear induced break up

  Advertising division:  IBI-4 - Biomacromolecular Systems and Processes Reference number:  2021M-061, (bio)physics, (bio)chemistry, biology and biotechnology Master thesis/Intership: Tuning aggregation of red blood cells and the shear induced break up Red Blood Cells (RBCs) are the most abundant type of cells found in the blood. The major role of the cells involve transporting oxygen and carbon dioxide to and from tissues to lungs, respectively. In addition, they perform several important secondary functions. One of them includes aggregation in the presence of glycoprotein like fibrinogen resulting in blood clot and wound healing. The aggregation phenomenon of RBCs can significantly affect the blood flow and circulation. The normal blood flow is sufficient to prevent formation of aggregates. However, in low shear rates the aggregation of RBCs may occur into cylindrical shaped assembly called rouleaux. There are two proposed explanations for the mechanism of the RBC aggregation:
