Honors Academy student Bachelor Industrial Design

Ernesto Buñuel Garcia

I’m an active person who likes projects, so the Honors Academy was a great chance to work on a bigger project. We’re working on a sustainable innovation project, building a physical representation of the TU/e Campus and its smart electricity grid. It’s an interesting design problem, creating interactive elements that show real-time where electricity is generated and consumed.

This year, I plan to really develop my technical skills: materials, laser cutting and 3D printing. I’m also focusing on networking and soft skills, looking for people with the skills I want to learn. I’m pretty entrepreneurial and like communicating, so I want to make a project out of that. Next year, I would like to go abroad for an internship. It will be challenging to work with my team remotely but I will learn a lot that my team can use.
