The major connects the technological aspects of the world to their human/societal interactive counterparts

Karen Schmit, student

Robotics does not only entail the building of robots, but also signal analysis and human-technology interaction.

I chose this major offered the University of Technology in Eindhoven for two reasons. One: it was a major that connected the technological aspects of the world to their human/societal interactive counterparts, and two: because the specificity of this major is offered at one place only, here at TU/e. 

I chose robotics as my major concentration, because it seemed as though it would offer me the most variety in job offers later in life. Robotics does not only entail the building of robots, but also signal analysis and human-technology interaction.  

Up until now, my course of study has run smoothly. I got to choose the elective courses I wanted to take and the study-advisers are very helpful in making sure your options are open. The thing I enjoyed the most was the ability to meet people from different majors because of the general Bachelor College courses.

Activities I do outside of my study include: Footloose (dance), Boreas bestuur (sailing), Intro Committee (Intermate), spend time with friends, go to the sport center and borrels & activities with Study Association Intermate. There is always something to do in Eindhoven, it’s just a matter of where you look and what you are looking for. 

My tip for new students: know what you like and don’t like and search for a major that fits the criteria. Also don’t be afraid to ask students what they like about their majors.
