My introduction week - Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics

Whatever study you chose in engineering a good preparation is always nice -
new culture, new people, a lifetime of memories! Welcome to international introduction week 2018!

So let’s get down to business, what can you expect from the introduction week?    
SV. Innovum – the study association of Fontys Engineering – has especially organized events where the new student gets to experience a wide range of social activities making you guys feel more at home.

Here is what we have in store for you:

You get to go bowling, meet a whole lot of new people, enjoy the Purple festival and so much more! Make new friends even before you step into school and be one step ahead of the others when it comes to building contacts.
When you step in the Netherlands or in Eindhoven for the very first time and you don’t know anyone, your mamas and papas can be of a lot of help! You always have a buddy who can show you around town then. The mammas and papas are the people taking care of your group during intro and they can help you get familiar with the Dutch culture, good food and the ‘’ever-so-amazing’’ Dutch weather.  So take journey of excitement and make yourself a part of the Innovum Introduction!
