Changemakers of DesignLab UTwente
DesignLab is a bright and creative environment and a home for new ideas and society friendly innovations. Alongside the clever engineers, designers, and researchers in DesignLab you'll always find DreamTeamers, keeping the DesignLab operational and helping you with your questions. If you are a student at University of Twente, you could be a DreamTeamer too!
As DreamTeamers, we aim to keep DesignLab an open and friendly environment for students, visitors, and other DreamTeamers. We are the ones keeping DesignLab operational, as we are in the space to ensure that everything is working properly. We are there to assist students with their projects and give a modern and fresh touch to different ideas and projects that are happening in the DesignLab. However, we are not only there to make DesignLab’s space more accessible. At DesignLab we work on various projects such as Makers Nights in which students can make use of the workshops to work on their personal projects, Light Bulb chats where we invite guests to present various topics, prototyping beautiful art installations, creating playful methods for turning an idea into a prototype, and much more! Also, we conduct research and use the DesignLab approach in collaboration with the DesignLab researchers, project managers and other internal and external partners.
The DesignLab family consists of numerous inspiring and creative members: the TechTeam responsible for maintaining the workshops and any requests concerning the workshops, DreamTeam operational coordinators who are the mediators to other DreamTeamers and management, DreamTeam project coordinators ensuring seamless project kickstarts, as well as the wonderful Management and Operational Teams helping us keep DesignLab running smoothly.
If you are an enthusiastic UT student who wants to take part in our goal to make an impact on society as a student: Our recruitment takes place twice a year (during Spring and Autumn).
