TU/e Academic Connection Hub

Because academic connection – matching the skills and knowledge high school students have at graduation with what’s needed in university – is interwoven with many parts of TU/e, we started the TU/e Academic Connection Hub to help decide on policy, share knowledge and facilitate TU/e-wide collaboration. The Academic Connection Hub consists of:

  • Central coordinator Academic Connection
  • Recruitment Manager
  • Departmental Academic Connection lecturers
  • Eindhoven School of Education
  • Innovation Space
  • Team Career & Professional Skills

High school experts

Creating curricular through-lines between high school and university is a team effort. That’s why we started an expert pool with enthusiastic teachers at VWO level, who support us in curriculum development. We are very happy with their support!

TIP: What is challenge-based learning?




Who are we?

We aim for the right student at the right spot. Challenge-based learning and blended learning, multidisciplinary projects, continuing learning curves, the right knowledge ánd skills. We would like to carry out this message not only externally, but also internally. We develop a variety of activities for students, teachers, and other professionals in secondary education, but also for our own colleagues. These activities are a collaboration of TU/e experts, our teacher education, Innovation Space, Career Center & Professional Skills, and of course our team consisting of enthusiastic student assistants.

We meet regularly with high schools, regional partners and national collaborations to exchange knowledge, but we also participate in regional and national projects and we develop activities and (course)materials.

Our team consists of:
Marjan van Ganzenwinkel – Recruitment Manager
Marjoleine van Kollenburg-Wouters – Aansluitingscoördinator VWO-WO
