PROUD Intake 2016!

On November 8, 2016 took place intake for new PROUD members! This year’s Fontys PROUD intake included candidates from Fontys Electrical Engineering and Mechatronics. We had wonderful day together with enthusiastic and ambitious candidates.

During the pitch, PROUD candidates shared their ambition, their eagerness to share their experience and they reflected on their dreams to become the brightest professionals!

Interviews with pitch had a jury from the industry (AME, Bosch, Philips, TSS4U, Van Ulzen, YLC, YER), PROUD Alumni, PROUD teachers, PROUD students and our dean Ella Hueting.

About myself: I’m an enthusiastic and curious person, looking for new challenges everyday. I’m always looking for gaining new technical and non technical skills and improving my current ones. currently I’m active and interested in new and cutting edge technologies and finding potentials to integrate them in different societies.

About PROUD Programme: Proud was the place to find the like minded people, get inspired by their ideas and experiences. It is the cool open platform for new ideas; from doing research on Fontys education and publishing it in different conferences till having collaboration with international groups or companies in the region, there is a huge range of possibilities that can be done.
For me it was really nice to have all these external possibilities but also proud gave me some extra hands on helping and trying to shift Fontys curriculum which meant a lot to me.
