Intermate is one of the study associations active on the campus of Eindhoven, University of Technology. In the summer of 2017 we will leave for a fantastic study tour around Malaysia and Singapore. Intermate represents students of the faculty of Innovation Sciences, which unify different bachelors and masters, resulting in an interesting mix of disciplines and students.
Intermate looks after the interests of its members on different levels. It brings students in contact with companies and allows its members to organize activities from which they learn to plan, organize and work cohesively. The activities may vary from course related seminars to informal sport events. Intermate enhances the personal development of its students in a professional way.
The bachelors courses that are represented by Intermate are Psychology & Technology and Sustainable Innovation.
Psychology & Technology
Psychology & Technology shows how technology and people influence each other. The students are able to deploy themselves into one of these three sectors: built environment, IT or robotics. They learn about psychology and research methodologies, and the application of those in different fields, like sociable robotics or intelligent lighting systems for an improved quality of life. Data analysis techniques play a very important role in the curricula of these students. This bachelor is followed by the master Human-Technology Interaction, in which the interaction between humans and technology is further elaborated, concerning among others the areas of cognition, perception and consumer behavior.
Sustainable Innovation portrays innovation with focus on the sustainability of society from multiple perspectives. The students have the choice among three specializations: sustainable energy, built environment or IT. Examples of research subjects are smarts homes, electric vehicles or carbon dioxide capture methods. Research methods and data analysis are also at the base of the education of these students, next to economics and sociology. This bachelor is followed by the master Innovation Sciences, in which the student can specialize in topics like globalization, patenting or the sustainability of an economy.
To make the trip affordable for everyone we are looking for companies that want to help us to realise this studytour. Companies can help us in multiple ways. We would like to arrange case studies with your company in which our students will work for you. We are also open for sponsorships (for example we can put your name on our clothes).
