Settels Savijne is a group of companies that fits perfectly with the high-tech engineering education.
Jaap Oudes (principal engineer) and Niels van Giessen (design engineer) from Settels in Eindhoven came to Delft to give a lunch lecture to the students. Settels invents, designs, and manufactures high-tech equipment. The equipment is used in medical treatments, display manufacturing, semiconductor industry and more. With accuracies of picometers, we were impressed by the performance of Settels’ machines. We were glad to see some familiar design concepts from the course precision mechanism design being used in real-life. Jaap stressed that the most important thing is to enjoy your job and that you should find out what is a fulfilling way to spend your time.
