  • PhD (Mech Engrg) Catholic University of Leuven 2006
  • MEng (Mech Engrg) Institute of Technology, Bandung 1999
  • BEng (Mech Engrg) Institute of Technology, Bandung 1996
Tegoeh obtained his PhD from Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium in 2006. Formerly he obtained his master degree from Institut Teknologi Bandung, Indonesia. During his study, he was involved in a lot of researches, particularly on non-linear dynamics of friction.

He was a Senior Researcher at Flanders’ MECHATRONICS Technology Center (FMTC) in Belgium, a research center bridging academic research and industrial know-how in mechatronics since 2006. In this research centre, he was involved in several projects, mainly in developing a model-based diagnosis methodology of mechatronic systems and noise reduction techniques in machineries.
