Visit the TU/e campus virtually
On Tuesday 8 December, TU Eindhoven launches its virtual visit; a virtual reality environment in which prospective students can experience the Eindhoven student’s life from a distance. With the virtual visit the university mainly focusses on international students, who are not always able to visit the open days. TU/e is the first Dutch university that uses virtual reality in order to inform students.
Getting a good impression
Take a walk around the campus, join a party during the introduction week or visit the Architecture department. The virtual visit offers its visitors a real-life experience of the TU/e campus, its departments and student’s life. This way, students can get a good impression what studying at TU/e is like, even if they are many kilometers away.
Google streetview with many extra’s
After being warmly welcomed by Adelya, one of the international PhD students, you’ll continue as a virtual visitor in a 3D environment that looks like Google Streetview. But it’s more than that: it offers audio, interviews, information points, videos and galleries. As a future student, you’ll get more and more feeling with TU/e as you go along.
Engineers in demand
It’s not without reason that attracting international students is one of TU/e’s highest priorities. In 2016, there will be a shortage of approximately 35.500 engineers on the Dutch labour market. Apart from that, the current business is asking not only for applied knowledge, but also creative, communicative, skilled, practical and flexible employees. To satisfy this growing need for well-educated technological employees, TU/e wants to attract more students from abroad. The virtual visit is one of the tools that will support this goal.
