Hello to U.
My name is Joep and I will be the external relations commissioner of the sixth board of U-BASE. As a graduate engineer from the university of applied sciences in Alkmaar, I know very well that it is really important for us (students), to be properly introduced to our fantastic field of work.
Studying is a journey and while it is mostly filled with reading books and listening to professors, we may not forget that this journey is also all about preparing U for your future job. It is important for the students' growth to acquire a solid network and a broad vision on the possibilities in the field. Our partners play a crucial role in achieving this. Because by learning from what companies are doing and listening to the market, students get their inspiration and a first glimpse of the life of an engineer.
Since I will start my master's this year, I am still fairly new to U-BASE and I am really looking forward to meeting you all and learning more about our association. In my function I am responsible for business with our partners and contact with other companies. So please feel free to contact me for any questions and let's have a nice chat in our office “The BASE”.
