Protagoras is the study association of Biomedical Engineering at the Eindhoven University of Technology. This program consists of two majors, Biomedical Engineering and Medical Sciences and Engineering. Study association Protagoras is the place to meet future biomedical enigineers and bring them into contact with your company.
The course started in 1977 as a specialization of Mechanical Engineering. Twenty years later, in 1997, Biomedical Engineering has become an independent faculty that now has a great number of graduates and PhD students. At the moment, there are about 1000 students who study Biomedical Engineering and every year there are around 200 firstyears who start this bachelor.
The study association Protagoras was founded in 1988 with the aim to organize both fun and career-oriented activities for the members. However, these activities are not possible without the support of companies. These collaborations and contacts are very valuable to us and we think that our students can also be of great value for your company.
This section of the website gives you an overview of the possibilities for collaboration with Protagoras. Under 'Contact with students' the possible career activities that the association organizes are described. In addition, attention is paid to the various options for presenting your company in the right way to our students. This way, our students get to see how your company fits within the field of biomedical engineering and how that happens.
