My name is Justin Markvoort. I’m from Bathmen and I’m 19 years old. I’m now in my 3rd year of Mechanical Engineering at Saxion in Enschede and I’ll be on a work placement in VIRO’s Mechanical Engineering department until early February. At the moment, I’m working on small assignments for an ongoing project for a customer in the semiconductor industry, and in the process I’ve learned how to use Creo software. I hadn’t used this package before but now I can make pretty decent drawings with it. So, this internship has been very educational for me. In Creo, I’m helping to design the M5-tool. I’m currently developing a frame to hang all the tools on as well as the bracing that fits around the tool. When I’m finished with this assignment, I’ll work independently on three larger assignments for the same project.
I’m very happy I chose VIRO for my work placement.
I work on interesting projects, learn a lot, and get lots of help from my colleagues in the departments!
