Loe Feijs (1954) studied Electrical Engineering at TU/e where he graduated in 1979 in the group Information and Communication Theory of Prof. Schalkwijk. Also in 1979 he worked at CSELT in Turin where he published with Chiariglione on two-component video compression techniques (note that this is the group who invented the MPEG video-coding now in billions of TVs, DVD players and smart-phones). After the obligatory Dutch military services he joined Philips Telecommunications Industry, later AT&TPhilips Telecom in the TSS16 group developing a new embedded computer and operating system for digital telephone exchanges. In 1984 Feijs joined the Philips Natuurkundig Laboratorium (Philips Research Laboratories) where he studied computer science and wrote a thesis on Formalized Design Methods using lambda calculus. In 1990 he obtained a Ph.D. in Computer Science of TU/e for this work, supervised by Prof. Kruseman Aretz and Prof. Bergstra. Working at Philips he conducted many case studies in formal methods in a variety of Philips Industry groups such as Industrial Automation, Consumer Electronics, Components, and Medical Systems. In 1994 Feijs was appointed part-time professor at TU/e Mathematics and Computer Science (chair Industrial Design of Formal Methods) , working in the group of Prof Baeten, contributing to the formalization of the Message Sequence Chart language and software testing. He co-founded the Nationale Testdag (which is successful already for 17 years). From 1998 to 2001 he was scientific director of the Eindhoven Embedded Systems Institute and in 2001 he was appointed full professor for the chair Industrial Design of Embedded Systems. From 2001 to 2006 he was Vice-dean of the newly founded department of Industrial Design with the task to build-up the research program. Having done this successfully, Feijs turned his attention to Industrial Design teaching and research including new disciplinary areas such as Product Semantics and Creative Programming and new applications such as Biofeedback and Neonatology.
