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.

Eric van Oosten (FM) talked about his work in Facility Management. What does he organise for events and meetings? And what about AV resources?

Actually, to a large extent, this is what our caretaker does at school.

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.

I didn’t know what to expect at first, but I still find it interesting to be at TU.
