Erik Kouters, master Computer Science and Engineering

'After obtaining my Bachelor's in ICT at Fontys University of Applied Sciences, I still felt that I had not challenged myself fully. For that reason, I decided to go to study at Eindhoven University of Technology. Due to my great interest in software development, I chose to study Computer Science and Engineering.

It was a good choice, because I really feel at home here. I am part of a group of people who are just as motivated by their passion as I am. That was missing in my previous degree program. I also gain a great deal of satisfaction from carrying out research: it feels great to be able to draw 'useful' conclusions from your research.

What will I do after I complete my studies? I suspect that I will enter the market as a software engineer. As I am a genuine team player, I hope to manage my own little group of developers one day.
