Ever since I was a child, I have been fascinated by technology. My study in engineering science is something I will never regret. Nevertheless, after having finished my Bachelor’s degree, I got the urge to experience some in the field action. Soon after learning about the Solar Team I realised that this was exactly the project in which I could further develop my technical skills but also, and maybe even more important, my social and project planning skills. Today I am truly proud of being part of a team of 20 motivated students who have put everything to the side to take part in an adventure of a lifetime.
Together with Rutger and Bart, we design, optimize and plan the production of the mechanical systems. These are mainly the brakes, the suspension and the steering system. The next 15 months will be challenging and a dive in the unknown. These are exactly the conditions on which a team as this one can thrive.
