This program is only open for excellent female scientists at the level of full Professor.
As a Professor of Applied Mechanics at the UT, you will develop a leading role in initiating, coordinating and executing novel scientific data analysis methods and approaches in the field of applied mechanics. Together with the other Professors of our department of Mechanics of Solids, Surfaces and Systems (MS3), you will be responsible for managing the department.
Faculty of Engineering Technology: working with industry and the public sector to conduct relevant applicable research
Our scientists are recognized worldwide for their high quality and innovative research and teaching qualities. They develop knowledge to find answers for inter-disciplinary and societally relevant problems by means of an engineering and entrepreneurial attitude. The research objectives of the faculty are to generate fundamental knowledge, to translate this knowledge into solutions for multidisciplinary technical problems and to disseminate this knowledge to our students and to the professional field. Within this context, the faculty focuses on the integrated value chain. The industrial and societal relevance of the research is secured by close collaboration with industry and the public sector.
In our education we aim to educate the engineers of the future to become T-shaped professionals who are able to acquire new knowledge themselves, able to apply this knowledge in a meaningful way and able to create innovative solutions for the new and complex challenges of industry and society. We do this through student-driven learning and project-led education, and by training students in the three different roles that they can adopt, i.e. Researcher, Designer or Organizer.
Department of Mechanics of Solids, Surfaces and Systems (MS3): Manufacturing the Future
Working with globally leading research and technology institutes – such as the ThermoPlastic composites Research Center and the Fraunhofer Project Center - the mission of MS3 is Manufacturing the Future. MS3 develops the technology for future manufacturing processes and new products by a science based engineering approach focused on material and system behavior, combined with robust optimization. “Creating new and better materials and products as well as the machinery required to make these products” is the focus of the MS3 department. This requires a profound scientific understanding of the materials and their interactions throughout the complete life cycle: during production, during use and after service life. The mechanics of materials and systems, for small and large deformations, in quasi-static and dynamic conditions, provide the background for our operations.
Based on our mission and focus, the research themes defined within MS3 are:
New sensing technologies enable detailed monitoring of manufacturing processes and products during prolonged periods of time. This results in massive amounts of data that need to be analyzed efficiently. Good understanding of the underlying physics, i.e. applied mechanics in particular, provides the best basis in this context. Current research within MS3 uses the results of these data analyses for e.g. the design & control of the manufacturing process or to schedule condition based maintenance.
High Tech Human Touch
At the University of Twente, we believe technology and people have a leading role to play in providing solutions for today’s complex and often global societal challenges. Central to our vision is our High Tech Human Touch philosophy, in which we fuse natural sciences, data science, biology and engineering with social and behavioural sciences, while maintaining a relentless focus on societal impact in five key areas:
University of diversity
At the UT, we embrace and encourage diversity along many different axes. We work hard to improve diversity, inclusion and equity within the campus community. Our constant aim is to create an inclusive community with an open and supportive environment for research, education and valorisation.
