Alumni lustrum event Thursday October 14, 2021

Engraving sessions, inspiring presentations of our researchers, guided tour at the Drivers of Change exposition, and above all the networking and reconnecting with your former fellow students. Nearly 300 alumni attended the Alumni event at TU/e and another 800 attended the event via livestream, including a large number of international viewers.

Four inspiring presentations were given 'Aerosols in the diffusion in spaces' by Bert Blocken, 'Metal fuels' by Philip de Goey, developments in the field of the 'Artificial womb' by Beatrijs van der Hout and a presentation on 'Artificial Intelligence' provided by Carlo van de Weijer. You can watch a few presentations via the livestream link.

The program ended with a guided tour of the TU/e-wide exhibition ‘Drivers of Change’.  Numerous examples from various faculties, student teams and start-ups are widely featured. 

Beautiful photos during the day, made by photographer Bart van Overbeeke, can be seen and uploaded in the online photo gallery.
