Why did you choose Groningen for your studies?

‘I wanted to study abroad, so I looked for Engineering bachelors all over Europe. In the harbour of my city you find many shipyards owned by Dutch ship-building companies. I grew up learning that the Dutch were very good engineers, so that influenced my choice to come here. ‘When I was in high school, I liked Physics and Mathematics. I wanted to study Engineering, but was not sure which direction to take. In Romania I would have to choose between Electronics and Mechanics, but I liked both. Hanze offers both in the first year, so I really liked that.’

What makes studying at Hanze special?

‘In Romania, universities are very good at teaching theory. Big companies like Microsoft and Apple get a lot of programmers from Romania because they have a lot of knowledge. But I was looking for a more practice-based approach. I don’t want to become a professor, I want to create things. ‘Here I also program, around sixty percent of the time. You can build a robot, but if you want it to do something, you have to program it as well. So it is not that I don’t like programming, I just don’t want to be behind a computer all the time. I want to see how the robot performs as well. ‘The school has good connections with companies. We visited Shell and NAM. We have professors from these companies who teach us. I like that. They give you an insight into your own future.’

What does our slogan Share Your Talent, Move The World mean to you?

‘I think as an engineer you can really move the world. If you combine robotics and health care, you can really improve surgery, for instance. Nowadays there are robots that can perform surgery with the surgeon controlling the robot from a distance. That really creates a lot of possibilities for the future. ‘I want to do something special. If I just do my job well, I will get bored. I need to be able to be creative, invent something. I like to aim high, it keeps me motivated. So I would love to invent something that moves the world, like a robot that can save people’s lives. But if my invention has a bit less impact than that, I don’t mind. At least for now I want to have the feeling that I can work on something special.’

“Emergency services can reach an accident faster when they use HIT’s smart traffic guide”

Using sensors, we designed and built a system to guide traffic through cities, in a smart way. The system actively keeps track of traffic density on each road segment. When drivers select that they want to follow the fastest route, the system will send them around busy roads. The system can also be used by the emergency services to enable them to respond faster. This is done by guiding normal traffic elsewhere and clearing the road segment around an accident. Working on socially relevant projects like this means we can apply the knowledge we have to find solutions to real life problems. Without a doubt, it’s also great preparation for our future careers.

Joost Zuidema is a 3rd year student at Hanze Institute of Technology
