How we started
August 2016 – A group of students of the CleanMobility project proposed to continue the innovation and start an alumni association. This initiative is what led to what we now know as the Engineers of Innovation.
Founded in August of 2016 and based in Amsterdam, Engineers of Innovation is an association for people who want to do more with their knowledge and share it with each other in the form of projects. In these projects it is possible to work together on great new innovative techniques.
Engineers of Innovation is not just there for sharing knowledge, but also for the community. It is about sharing and having fun, even after your graduation.
It's possible to enter the association if you have studied Engineering or your study participated in the CleanMobility project at the University of Applied Sciences in Amsterdam. Did you study one of the previous studies of Engineering ( Elektrotechniek, Engineering Design and Innovation, Product design or Technische bedrijfskunde), you are also eligible to become a member.
Did you not follow one of these studies, but still want to become a member? Just email the board and learn what is possible.
Our current project is building a solar boat to participate in the Solar Sport One races in 2018 and the Solar1 race in Monaco. Many of our members have experience with a solar boat project, during their study at the University. Since we are not students anymore, and we liked the solar boat project so much, we want to do these kind of projects with our association.
The association has members from different studies which makes a very multidisciplinary group. This means that there is a lot of knowledge from different levels. For example, the group consists of (ex)students and graduates of the studies "Engineering, Design and Innovation" and "Electrical Engineering". This group can collaborate closely and finds innovation and technology an important part of its own development.
