The opening of the Academic Year marks the official start of the new academic year at the Eindhoven University of Technology. The ceremony is organized for all students, staff and external partners. The official Opening of the 2016-2017 Academic Year takes place on Monday, September 5, 2016, starting at 4 p.m. in the TU/e Auditorium.
Theme: Dream. Dare. Do.
This year we celebrate the 60th anniversary of the TU/e, which has the theme Dream and Dare. At the opening of the academic year, we want to add the Do. It reflects the ambition the TU/e and its students to actively put their knowledge into practice. This may be as entrepreneurs or as scientists, but always to change society for the better.
We are proud to have three guest speakers from totally different backgrounds. From the public domain to the peak of scientific research and the very top of the industry. We have asked them to share their thoughts with you on their personal challenges and the actions they have taken to reach their goals. From the dream via the dare to the do.
