Like every year there will be an introduction week for all the new students that are going to study at the TUE next academic year. In order to guide all these students we are searching for volunteers. The introduction week is a fun week for both new students (kiddo’s) and old students (parents) that are willing to make the best week ever. If you think you’ve have it in you to be a good parent then please subscribe here and become one of the guides.

What is your job as a parent?

When you become a parent you’ll be appointed to a group of new students that are going to study either Electrical Engineering or Automotive next year. This group has a size of +- 8 new students plus you and your partner, the 2 parents. It will be your job, together with your partner, to guide these students through the introduction program. This involves for example;

  • Making sure the students get to the activities
  • Let the students get to know each other
  • Let the students get to know Eindhoven
  • Let the students have a great time
  • And more

Important remarks

  • We’re only looking for Electrical Engineering or Automotive students.
  • If you are a first year student and we have to many parents then you’ll have a lower priority then 2nd, 3rd or master students.
  • We might invite you to ask a few questions about your motivation
  • A parent should be available for the whole week sometimes from very early to very late.
  • It might be smart to subscribe with someone that you already know. This however, is not mandatory.
  • You have to be available from 21 til 25 August and also on the weekend before the intro (19 + 20). Otherwise you can NOT be an intro-parent.

How do you become a parent?

Please contact the Thor Intro Committee at tic@thor.edu since the submissions are closed.

Are you also so full of energy after being stuck in lectures for entire days? If so, join us at our assault courses and compete on three different courses to win a nice price if you are the fastest. Challenge your friends, intro-brothers, sisters and parents and find out who of you is fastest.

After the activity you are welcome to join our outside drink, which will take place after the activity. For four euro's you can also join the barbecue.

Heb je na een week college ook zo veel opgekropte energie die je niet kwijt kunt? Kom dan mee doen met de stormbanen waar we niet één, niet twee maar drie stormbanen hebben! De uiteindelijk snelste persoon die over deze drie stormbanen weet te komen wint een leuke prijs. Daag dus je vrienden en introbroers en zussen uit en kijk wie de snelste is.

Nadat je bent uitgerend kun je komen genieten van de buitenborrel. Ook zal er voor maar 4 euro een BBQ plaatsvinden waar je lekker kunt ontspannen en genietend van een stukje vlees nieuwe verhalen vertellen over de eerste week college.
