The University of Twente
Makes a difference! How about you?

You just finished your studies and you are looking for your first job. Or have you been in the same spot for too long and are looking for a new challenge.

Young alumni face different challenges than someone who's career is already further along or even ended. For these young alumni under the age of 35 we have created the Young Alumni Network. This network organizes readings, workshops, networking drinks and other activities for young alumni. The focus of these activities are networking, your career, personal development and enjoying yourself.

Do you have any ideas for nice and educational activities? Please contact us on!

Looking for board members!

For the new year we are looking for 4 new board members to reinforce our team and help us get this idea off the ground. These board members will be part of the network for one to two years.

Preferably we are looking for alumni under the age of 35, with work experience and a UT BSc or MSc degree. Are you interested? Contact Joe Laufer, relationship manager alumni, on or one of the current board members.
