Mail a Student

What is Applied Mathematics all about, how many hours do you have to spend with your nose in books and what is it like to be a student on this course? If you are looking for the right course for you, you will probably have a great many questions to ask. Not only is it important to choose the right degree, it is also important to choose the right environment in which to study.

In order to give you some idea of what you can expect when you begin studying, you can e-mail the following students and ask them questions or find out more about their experiences.

Hey everyone!

I have to be honest, it took me a lot of time to choose my study. In the end, I chose to study Applied Mathematics & Computer Science at the TU/e. It isn't easy to choose what you want to do for the next couple of years, as I experienced too. However, I really found my place, and it would be great if I could help you find your own place too!

For this, it is sometimes necessary to ask questions to people who have been through this process themselves and who already have experience doing a certain study at a certain place. So, if you have any questions regarding my studies, the university, maybe even life in Eindhoven, don't hesitate to send me an e-mail!

Good luck and kind regards, Bas

My name is Iwan Bongaerts, student Applied Mathematics at TU/e. In high school I thought Mathematics was the most interesting subject so for me choosing a study was easy. Since I was about 14 years old I knew I wanted to study something mathematical. 

After my graduation I want to get a job in industry but I am not sure what.

I know that choosing a study is not that easy for everyone, it can be quite hard. There is so much information which can help you choose but also raise more questions. Questions that can best be answered by students from that study program. So, if you have any questions, send me a e-mail and I will do my best to answer it and help you choose the study that fits you best.

Regards, Iwan
