Heroes for heroes
More than knowledge
When alumni are asked about their time at TU/e, they praise the opportunities they had to develop their talent, both during and outside of lectures. And with social projects. We want to ensure that future generations will also have these opportunities. Which is why we are now once again asking you to donate. Will you support the development of countless talents? The heroes of the future?
We are proud of our heroes of today. And they are proud of their work. Which is why we often post interviews with them. Discover the groundbreaking developments that they make possible and get to know the people behind the projects.
New story: Dirk van Meer
Dirk is the captain of Team Core. Their mission is special and very sustainable. And it is twofold: turning waste that is difficult to process into a raw material that can be used, for example, to make ballast material. And with the heat that is released, the precious metals from electronics are efficiently recycled. A project in which many talents and all disciplines of the TU/e have a role. Supplemented by people from Fontys and Avans and a number of external experts. Read the interview with the driven and ambitious team captain here.
New story: Mohammadreza Baigmohammadi
Mohammadreza is a member of a project group with a special, sustainable mission: they want to make a fully circular fuel from metal particles. Read all about the enormous benefits for our world, the challenges and the perseverance of Mohammadreza here.
EVA AND HARM
Two talents who make the most of their time at TU/e. They are working on biological sensors using light and photoproteins. These sensors detect infections and viruses, such as Covid-19. Their ultimate objective: a portable means of quick and reliable testing, anywhere in the world. Read Eva and Harm's story here.
Your name immortalized on our campus
Will you support their future, and that of the next generations? All of our supporters are our heroes. Which is why we are displaying the names of our donors on a special Heroes’ Arch on campus (that is, unless you would prefer to remain anonymous). Find out more here. While donating, you can also leave a wish for the heroes of the future. It will then appear on this page.
Hans Fischer, former CEO of Tata Steel in IJmuiden is our latest donor. With a named fund, Hans wants to ensure that our talents benefit from the same opportunities that he had during his time at TU/e. But he wants to do more than simply giving. He will be actively involved, making his expertise, experience, and network available to students. Read more about Hans and what he wants to achieve in this detailed interview.
Tessie Hartjes is VP of marketing at Lightyear and the newest board member of the University Fund. Her belief: technology is so much more useful if it benefits the world. As a member of the Lightyear team, she knows what that technology can mean. And what the difference is between good technology and a good product. Read her story about cubicles, psychology, and contributing to a better world here.
Will you support a future in which talents can continue to flourish to the full? In which students can grow into the engineers who develop the solutions that the world is waiting for?
