Progress through connection

The Office  for Alumni Relations connects alumni, TU/e and students. We help each other, with practical support, inspiration, and our networks. Because connection is our basis for progress.

Stories about connection


Alumni can give back to their alma mater in various ways f.e. via coaching. For several years now, alumni have contributed to the TU/e Contest, a competition that give students the opportunity to realize their innovative ideas and take them to a higher level. Alumni can also become a coach within the GURU Coaching program from TU/e innovation Space. During the TU/e Innovation Night you can get more information.

Alumni in the spotlight

Alumni who received a special scholarship or - with their own company - make the news or win prizes. We honor them in this section.

Henk Arntz, CEO of Suncom Energy, marched away with the Industry Innovators Award 2022

He has won both the jury prize and the audience prize. He also had the opportunity to pitch his idea during the Dragons' Den of Transition. The startup founded by Arntz, alumnus of the department of Mechanical Engineering, is regarded as a promising agent for change as the industrial sector moves towards sustainability. He wants to build the Netherlands' first concentrated solar thermal energy storage facility, using compact parabolic mirrors to supply renewable heat 24/7 to bakeries, glasshouses and saunas.
