The guidance of the AI&ES students is a significant part of the study program. We find it very important that you get the right support and guidance during your studies, which is offered by different people in specific roles.
Your academic advisor is your first point of contact for all study related questions and problems, such as discussing your study progress, academic achievement and study planning. Moreover, you should connect with the academic advisors for questions about study delay due to personal circumstances (e.g. dyslexia, illness, home situation) or changes to your block, study choice, motivation or complaints, entry and homologation requirements.
An academic advisor is not linked to a particular project or course but guides you with all aspects of your study program. This is done in a personal conversation, for which both you and the academic advisor can take the initiative. The conversations are confidential and take place in an open atmosphere. Whenever necessary, your academic adviros will referr you to the competent bodies of TU/e, e.g., to student advisors of ESA or TU/e confidential counsellors.
The academic advisor of the master AI&ES is Marijke Creusen - Erica. You can make an appointment following the link below.
At TU/e we find it important to support all students in feeling welcome at the campus and in their program. That is why there is a student mentoring program in place, intended for all new TU/e students with a first enrollment at TU/e. The aim of the mentoring program is to support you in the onboarding process and to help you get acquainted with the program, your fellow students, the campus and the opportunities TU/e has to offer.
All new TU/e master students will be divided into small groups of about 6 students and allocated to a master student mentor. The student mentor will contact all groups this week or next week to invite you to a first group meeting.
The mentoring program will run in semester A of this academic year and will cover diverse topics, like the TU/e education systems, study management, communication, exams, etc. In addition, if you have a (practical) study related question, you can always ask your mentor for help.
Students of the master program AI&ES choose one out the 6 tracks quarter (Q1) of the program. Each student is assigned a track mentor from their chosen track. The track mentor advises the student in composing the study program and making program-specific choices based on the student’s background and ambitions. The track mentor is also involved in the professional development of the student and gives advice about international experience. For an overview of the track mentors and their contact details please visit Track mentor page.
