Alumni event Chicago

20 April 2023 17:30 till 21:00 - By: Alumni Relations | Add to my calendar

After previous USA Alumni Tours in 2014 and 2018, we are back! With a combined network of over 8.000 ‘4TU’ graduates in the United States, our alumni are not only valuable contacts for each other but also unique access points to exciting organizations!

Join us next month for ‘behind the scenes’ alumni events at the HQ of autonomous vehicle company Motional (Boston, 19 April), Adyen’s North America Tech Hub (Chicago, 20 April) or ASML's Silicon Valley R&D facility (San Jose 25 April), as well as a casual meetup reception in San Francisco (venue TBD, 24 April).

These special gatherings are part of a new USA Tour organized by TU Delft, UTwente, TU/e and Wageningen University with evening programmes that include talks by local alumni from the host companies about their career paths and current jobs as well as updates from your alma mater. The closing ‘borrel’ drinks are a great opportunity for mixing with fellow TU alumni and will be organized to maximize networking opportunities.
The events are free of charge and open to all alumni of TU Delft, UTwente, TU/e and Wageningen University but prior registration is required.

About DEAN

The Dutch Engineers Alumni Network (DEAN) of TU Delft, University of Twente, Wageningen University and TU Eindhoven launched its activities in 2014 and currently has communities in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Nordics, Spain and Switzerland. By bringing together the engineers that studied in the Netherlands, we hope to create valuable communities for our alumni. We encourage members to use these communities for sharing both achievements and information as well as tapping into the expertise of each other. 

Dutch engineers work across a wide range of sectors, and are affiliated not only with the most prestigious organisations of their fields but in many cases also self-funded start-ups. Some of them may have only recently completed their studies in the Netherlands while others have already lived in one of these countries for a decade or more. This network, therefore, represents a significant source of skills, contacts, and advice.
