About myself:

When I was a child, I loved every time my grandparents were taking me to the train station to see all these big monsters rolling on the tracks. That passion grew up with me becoming passionate for engineering and led me to complete my studies and start my professional career as commissioning engineer, where I worked for more than 7 years in all kind of projects including international experience. At one point, I decided that I wanted to keep growing in my career and stepped aside of the professional world back to education for becoming a mechanical engineer. I came attracted by the potential of The Netherlands where I can combine quality education and opportunities to direct the next steps of my career towards exciting new fields.

In Eindhoven I found a lively space where I am enjoying my free time. I love running (or rollerblading when the weather allows it) along the canals surrounded by nature, going to the city center and sitting in a comfortable terrace, or visiting the airport for spotting some planes! I also made good friendships with other students and enjoy making plans for playing some team sports or simply organizing barbecues. And of course, when I have the opportunity of getting some days off, my favorite hobbies: traveling and scuba diving, which I try to do over the summer breaks

About PROUD Programme: The program has a lot of potential to become a success with the mechanical engineers as it has been through the years for the Electrical engineers. It is really positive for the students to gain knowledge of the professional world while they still have to take care of their study responsibilities, making them more responsible and organized. The opportunity of experiencing the applications of the topics they learn in class is definitively a unique selling point of PROUD.
