Martijn Timmermans obtained both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in mechanical engineering from the Eindhoven University of Technology. Within the broad field of mechanical engineering, he specialized in control and precision mechanics.
At the end of his bachelor’s, Martijn ran a project in computer vision for an eye-surgery robot, where 3D objects needed to be recognized inside the eye. During his master’s, Martijn spent a semester studying in Salerno, Italy. Here, he participated in a project with a view to converting conventional cars into hybrid vehicles by means of solar panels and in-wheel motors. He completed the graduation project for his master’s at Prodrive Technologies in Son, where a conceptual machine was developed for the precise winding of coils.
