Marieke van Amelsvoort

Via this short writing, I would like to introduce myself as a PROUD member. 

My name is Marieke van Amelsvoort and I have been asked to join his PROUD team starting in September 2019. I work at Fontys Mechanical Engineering and next to teaching I am also an internship and graduation coordinator.  

I want to support this team of special students in giving them a unique and strong learning experience. Of course, it is also my goal to make PROUD more known within the whole engineering department so that the group will become a well oiled multidisciplinary group. 

Looking forward to being part of this team!
