Do you want to contribute

Collaborate directly with world leading chemical companies.

We are happy to announce the start of the ICMS Industrial Challenge 2018!

Five inspiring Industrial Research Challenges have already been submitted by four companies to inspire and stimulate our Master students to come up with creative ideas for the benefit of the industry. An additional Industrial Challenge on a biomedical topic is expected.

TU/e lecturers will monitor, guide and assess the progress of the Master student teams throughout this elective course (6EMAC7) in Q1&Q2.

Kick-off Event (27 September)

On Thursday 27 September (only incase of enough student registrations) the ICMS Industrial Challenge will commence with a kick-off event in the Ceres building on the TU/e campus. Industry representatives will present their cases followed by a borrel where challenge participants can meet with each other and with company representatives. More information will follow closer to the date!

The problem statements will be made available on the website shortly.
