My introduction week - Industrial Engineering & Management

Congratulations on your choice for Industrial Engineering & Management (IE&M)!

We would now like to invite you to the introduction week on the 22th (Tuesday) of August 2017. Introduction is the way to get to know your classmates, get familiar with the great city of Eindhoven and learn about the Dutch way of life! Of course, it’s not compulsory, but it is highly recommended to attend as it will give you a kick start into your life here at Fontys. But first:

Monday the 21st of August 2017: 'Get the paperwork out of the way'

All international students need to make sure that they visit the information desk no later than Monday the 21st of August 2017. You can find the information desk at Fontys Building R1, room 2.47; Rachelsmolen 1, 5612 MA, Eindhoven. Bring the original papers of your past study (diploma or Transcript of Records). You need to show these official papers to the information desk. During this visit you will also plan a meeting with Eindhoven city hall.


The introduction for IE&M is spread over three days and is split into two parts. The first part is on Tuesday 21st of August 2017. The second part is spread over Wednesday and Thursday (22nd and 23rd of August 2017). To get an idea of the introduction we have a brief summary for each day of the introduction below:
