Pupils from VMBO 1 are introduced to professions at faculty 3mE
Welke (ondersteunende) beroepen en sectoren heb je bij de TU Delft?
The 3mE faculty recently provided a lightning internship for pupils from the first class of VMBO (pre-vocational secondary education) SC Delfland from Delft. The introduction by Roos Oosting (BMechE) on what a university is and the importance of technology and education & research for Delft and society was followed by four introductions to professions at 3mE.
After helping Eric prepare a room for a meeting, the students went to the walk-in workshop. Mark Goossens explained his role and what it was like to supervise the students in the workshop. Then it was time to get to work! The students were given a practical assignment to fold a piece of steel into a handy pencil case.
Finally, Peter Poot (MTT) and Vicky Eller (3mE communication department) gave the pupils a glimpse behind the scenes. What is a modeller? What does a content manager do? Peter showed the drag tank and explained how he provides technical support to the scientists in their research. Vicky talked about the importance of online communication for the faculty.
JINC and TU Delft
TU Delft and JINC are working towards the same goal: that your postal code does not determine your opportunities in life. Every child has talent. This includes the hundreds of thousands of Dutch children who grow up in an environment with unemployment and few role models. That is why JINC fights for a society where your background does not determine your future. JINC introduces children between the ages of 8 and 16 to all kinds of professions and organisations. In this way, they discover a new world, find out which job or environment suits their talents and expand their network. Every year, JINC gives tens of thousands of primary and secondary school pupils the chance to grow.
