Alumnus Tim Drijvers

'After my higher vocational education degree in computer science, I felt that I was not yet ready to finish studying. I wanted to know more about computer science, I was looking to deepen my knowledge. So I chose to study Embedded Systems at TU/e. What is the best thing about that program?

The mix of students, the challenges in the course content and the eminent (guest) professors. I completed my studies with Silicon Hive, a spin-out of Philips. That was an interesting opportunity to look behind the scenes of a commercial business. What is my dream job? Director of Philips, ha ha! Seriously though, I am currently enjoying my work as a software engineer with WiseGuys Internet, but I want to continue to specialize throughout my life. Both in terms of the technology itself but also in communicative and social skills.'
