Vacancy: Introduction Programme assistant

Are you born to be an event planner? Do you have outstanding graphical skills? Are you an organisation maniac? But most of allā€¦ are you excited to welcome the new MSc and Exchange and bridging students arriving in Delft? We are looking for you!

What is the Introduction Programme?

The Introduction Programme kickstarts the incoming Master, Exchange and bridging students on their new adventure with an intense and exciting schedule. The programme gives the unique chance to get acquainted with the academic culture and the student life at TU Delft, while meeting new peers from around the world and from other places in The Netherlands. Numerous cultural, academic and social activities help everyone to get the most out of this new experience.

The Introduction Programme and the OWee (introduction week for Bachelors) also cooperate in summer programme elements that are organised for all new incoming students.

We strive for diversity in the IP Crew, in character, skills, nationality and education programme. The IP crew currently consists of 5 experienced IP assistants and 2 TU Delft employees.
