In order to develop more talent for the engineering domains, the University of Twente has build a partnership with the VU Amsterdam, in order to, amongst others, offer bachelor and master programs from the University of Twente together with VU Amsterdam, at the location of VU Amsterdam. One those programmes is Creative Technology. Working in this context means that you will be part of a unique merger that doubles your opportunities. Come work for two universities that together train broadly developed technical talent. At the cutting edge of every conceivable science, you will work towards a resilient, sustainable, digital society.
The Robotics and Mechatronics group (RaM) does research into the design and development of new applications of Robotics. Core expertises of the group are in robotics for care (MRI compatible robots, medical imaging), tele-robotics, haptics, wearable robotics (co-bots), aerial robots and bio-inspired robotics for service and maintenance. Within the scope of this position a link between research and education (so, for example, a connection with creative industry) with a focus on Design driven research is a pre. In the education track two complimentary topics recognised: Design of Smart Technology or Interactive Media, where the link between Smart Technology and Robotics is the strongest. A focus on the ‘human aspect’ (so HRI, Human-Robot collaboration) is a must.

Education in the context of Creative Technology:
The bachelor programme Creative Technology is taught in English and is an interdisciplinary program in which the latest smart technology and interactive media for developing solutions that will contribute to a better future for people and society are taught, as well as the principles of Humane by Design. Throughout the many hands?on projects, students gain technical knowledge and skills, as well as the ability to understand how media and technology influence humans, design and creative processes. Using extensive knowledge of computer science and electrical engineering, students learn to cover the entire creation process: from identifying the core question to building a working prototype and testing it with users.

About the organization
The faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) uses mathematics, electronics and computer technology to contribute to the development of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). With ICT present in almost every device and product we use nowadays, we embrace our role as contributors to a broad range of societal activities and as pioneers of tomorrow's digital society. As part of a people-first tech university that aims to shape society, individuals and connections, our faculty works together intensively with industrial partners and researchers in the Netherlands and abroad, and conducts extensive research for external commissioning parties and funders. Our research has a high profile both in the Netherlands and internationally. It has been accommodated in three multidisciplinary UT research institutes: Mesa+ Institute, TechMed Centre and Digital Society Institute.
