 CV Arjo Bos


Arjo Bos was born on December 19th, 1988 in 's-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands. After finishing Gymnasium in 2007 at the 'Jeroen Bosch College' in 's-Hertogenbosch, he studied Mechanical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology. In January 2013, he graduated (Cum Laude) within the Constructions & Mechanisms group on the design of a 'Nanometer Form Measurement Machine for E-ELT M1 Segments', carried out in cooperation with the Optomechatronics department of TNO in Delft.

Since April 2013, Arjo is a Ph.D. student in the Control Systems Technology group of the Mechanical Engineering department, conducting his research in collaboration with TNO on the design and dynamical behaviour of scientific instruments. The main topics are predicting performance-limiting dynamics in an early stage of the design process, and applying the lessons-learned in an industry-relevant prototype.

His ambitions are to continuously grow and improve as a mechanical design engineer. Arjo his main interest is in precision mechanics, more specific in scientific instrumentation for astronomy and space, to help making tomorrow's discoveries possible.


 CV Jordan Bos


Just as his twin brother, ir. Jordan Bos was born on December 19th , 1988 in 's Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands. After finishing Gymnasium 'Natuur & Techniek' in 2007, he studied Mechanical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). He completed an international internship for NASA at the Florida Institute of Technology (FIT), USA. In January 2013, he graduated 'Cum Laude' within the Control Systems Technologies (CST) group of M. Steinbuch and Constructions & Mechanisms group of P.J.C.N. Rosielle on the 'Design of a method and a device for a novel cochlear implant procedure'. He received the 'Unilever Research Prize 2013' and the 'Tata Steel Prize for Mechanical Engineering and Materials 2013' for his graduation work.

Jordan started his research in April 2013 as part of the CST group in the Constructions & Mechanisms lab at the TU/e, where he started with the design of a novel image guided surgery robot. Currently he is a Ph.D. student in the same group and he is working on the packaging and of photonic-electronic hybrids.

His ambitions are to belong to the top of mechanical design engineers and system architects in the Netherlands. Currently, his main interests are precision mechatronics, with a focus on medical robotics and photonics to improve healthcare and society.
