About myself: My field of interest is power electronics, especially industrial and automotive.

About PROUD Programme: Having started as a bachelor student at the TU/e before, I had a lot of spare time at Fontys. I was a bit bored and had the idea that I wasn’t learning new things. Peter van Kollenburg advised me to see if I was interested in PROUD. I joined PROUD and got in to contact with Prodrive-Technologies. Together with some other students, I started the PROUD student committee, which together with the PROUD teacher committee forms the board of PROUD. Looking back, I think PROUD is exactly what I was looking for because the way it is set up. It brings you in to contact with companies and lets you organize things at Fontys.
