Every year there is a brand new TU/e Sensing Team that represents the TU/e at the SensUs competition. There are a multitude of fields you can work in. We need people who are interested in chemistry to help with assay development and chemical optimization. We also need people who have a background in physics to help with the physical principles of biosensing. We need people who are interested in signal processing, translating the binding of a molecule to a usable, measurable signal. This involves programming and a lot of electronics. Moreover, throughout the process we have to keep the end-user in mind: the patient. This requires design choices for user-friendliness, portability and cost, suitable for industrial design students. Lastly, we constantly have to keep in touch with the outside world, requiring public relation work and drawing in sponsors.
Students from all studies can join our team, but students from Biomedical Engineering, Medical Engineering, Applied Physics, Chemical Engineering and Electrical Engineering can be especially useful to the team.
T.E.S.T. 2019 will be formed in October/November 2018 until September 2019 when the SensUs competition will take place. If you are up to an amazing challenge and want to gain new skills and knowledge, join T.E.S.T. 2019! If you have any questions, please send an email to email@example.com.
Participating in the SensUs competition is rewarded as a extracurricular course. Read all the details here.
