You never know what the day will bring, because a process is always to some extent unpredictable.

My main reason for studying Chemical Engineering in Eindhoven was my interest in the plastics industry. That’s why TU/e was a good choice, because of its partnership with the Dutch Polymer Institute.

Right from day one it was exactly what I wanted to do. It’s hard work, there’s no doubt about that, but you get intensive support in a closely knit team. And even though I’m now working in the Botlek in Rotterdam, and not in the ‘Eindhoven Brainport’ region, my time at TU/e was certainly a big help in my career. I’ve been working for ExxonMobil for five years, and now I’m just about to start work as process engineer at the refinery in Singapore. What I like most about my job? You never know what the day will bring, because a process is always to some extent unpredictable.
