BOOST! TU/e Education Innovation

Have you ever wondered what happened with the reallocated money from the student finance program, after our government decided to switch to the student loan system in September 2015?

Dear student,

Have you ever wondered what happened with the reallocated money from the student finance program, after our government decided to switch to the student loan system in September 2015? Would you like to have a say in the innovative projects at the TU/e that are funded with this money? This is your chance!

The BOOST! (Be the Owner of your Own Study) working group is launching a student competition and asks students to come up with original and innovative projects to improve the quality of TU/e’s education using IT resources. The cool part? The prize-winning project will become a part of the real BOOST program and will be executed with a maximum budget of €150,000.-! In addition, the winner of the competition will become the proud owner of a brand new Apple 11-inch iPad Pro 128GB.

Will you be able to come up with an original idea to innovate the education at our university? You are able to participate by sending an email with your proposal before the 1st of May to contestboost@tue.nl. All students enrolled at the TU Eindhoven are eligible to enroll for the competition.

If you would like to get inspiration, or if you are interested in the innovative projects that are currently under development at your faculty within the BOOST! program, please visit https://boost.tue.nl/. Moreover, the complete competition rules and evaluation criteria of the student contest can be found on www.boost.tue.nl/Student_Contest/Competition _regulations/.

We are looking forward to your proposals.

Kind regards,

Rik van Gorp
