Career activities


Starting this academic year, the TU/e has implemented the so called “MyFuture Activities”. These activities are career orientational activities which you as a student can attend. These range from lunch lectures to case contests to company visits and are aimed at giving you as a student a clear overview of where you can work and what you can do when you are finished with your studies. Please use this opportunity to experience what companies will be interested in you as an engineer. Our university aims for a strong collaboration between education and companies.

Different career activities yield different values of MyFuture Activities. These values range from 1 to 3, with a higher value given to activities that either take longer, are more detailed or both.
