Fontys Engineers Meet & Match is the annual event where companies and students from Engineering University are connected with each other. This year Fontys University of Applied Sciences Techniek en Logistiek from Venlo will also join in. Are you a company looking for trainees or graduates? Are you looking for cooperation with Fontys? Would you like to get in touch with 2000 future engineers and ICT professionals in one day? And would you like to speed-date virtually with eight to 15 students of your choice? Or present your company virtually to a group of students? Then this event is for you.
The aim of the event is for companies to get in touch with future Engineers, IT and Logistics talents to fill in an internship or graduate position. Companies and students come into contact with each other by means of a video link. The set-up contains four elements:
During a speed date of 20 minutes, a second-, third- or fourth-year student and a company enter into a conversation together. Prior to the event, both companies and students fill in their own profiles. Companies indicate the type of student they want to talk to. For example, with 2nd year automotive and/or mechanical engineering students. The students indicate which companies they would like to talk to. In this way, companies and students are matched. As a company, you have a maximum of 15 speed date interviews per virtual speed date room with students who match your stated preference. The speed dates are planned in advance so that everyone has a personalised day programme. You can already reserve Thursday 8 April in your agenda, and at your (home) workplace.
Virtual company presentation
The event also offers the opportunity to give a virtual presentation of up to 20 minutes to a group of students who choose to be present at the presentation. Interaction with students here is limited due to (possible) group size. The presentation can also be a recorded presentation that is shown here. Interaction is then obviously not possible.
Virtual "company market
For all students who do not have the opportunity to have a 1:1 conversation with a company, there is the "company market". Here, companies can talk to small groups of students (maximum 10). Students can ask questions and share information.
Workshop "How to formulate a good assignment".
For all participating companies of Fontys Engineers Meet & Match 2021, we offer the possibility to participate in the virtual workshop "How to formulate a good assignment". During this workshop, prior to the event, we will discuss the components of a good internship or graduation assignment. This way, you can be sure that your assignment fits in with the programmes and the students. This may help you to make students even more enthusiastic about your company.
Who is it for?
The event is meant for all companies who want to get in touch with students of Fontys University of Applied Sciences Engineering and Fontys University of Applied Sciences Technology and Logistics who are looking for a (graduation) internship.
