Honors Academy student Master Mechanical Engineering

Scientific articles are often full of great ideas that nobody ever hears about. That’s why my Honors Academy team created a website which translates scientific literature about air pollution into useful tips and actions. My team consisted of international students and professionals, which meant I had to get really good at asking open questions to truly understand the others.

You don’t need cum laude grades to be able to apply for the Honors Academy. Motivation is the most important aspect. My average grade during my bachelor’s was a 7. With new motivation, my average grade during my master’s is higher, even with the added Honors Academy work. My most important takeaway is that so much is possible if you collaborate with like-minded people. Which is why I’ve joined Solar Team Eindhoven: a new team and a new challenge.
