My work as an ALUMNI OFFICER includes not only liaising with our graduates but also other tasks:
Contact person for EEMCS + S&T for:
➡️ EEMCS alumni
➡️ Programme directors
➡️ Bachelor and master advisors/coordinators
➡️ Student associations - board and/or committees
➡️ Alumni associations - board
Staff, students and alumni who have questions or requests regarding alumni affairs can contact me for, for example:
➡️ Contacting alumni
➡️ Looking for alumni for events
➡️ Social media posts (LI) about alumni and PhD activities (UT graduates and now PhD students at UT) = image building for our own alumni but also for external audiences.
Events running within EEMCS:
➡️ Alumni Career Day Applied Mathematics - alumni come along to speak to groups of (master's) students about their experiences of the programme and their current jobs. Alumni can tell their stories, students can ask questions. At the same time, alumni announce whether there are any internships and/or graduation projects and how students can participate. This event is organised annually ism Marco (master committee) within the study association Abacus.
➡️ Women in Electrical Engineering - 4 alumnae are invited to talk to a female audience about their experiences within the programme and what the programme has brought them. What it was like to study and perhaps work as a lady within a 'man's world'. Of course, they also talk about the work they are doing now and why they chose this job and company. This event is organised annually in cooperation with KIVI Twente.
➡️ An example of a social media post is the story of Danique Lummen. She studied Computer Science (Cybersecurity) and participated in the Bachelor Open Days in October 2023. Her story can be read on my LinkedIn page: https://www.linkedin.com/in/dianadalenoord/
