As a graduated civil engineer, my degree taught me a lot about building roads, bridges and tunnels, but very little about building cars. I find durable technology very important: building windmill parks out at sea has fascinated me for years, as well as many other fields within engineering. The Solar Team is the ideal combination between working on a sustainable future and gaining knowledge in many fields of engineering. Designing and building the next solar car will be very rewarding, with as highlight the World Solar Challenge in Australia. Within this challenging project, I am responsible for the design of the composite structure together with Philip and Cedric. We aim for a car that is as light as possible, but sturdy enough to face the competition.
