“Communication, even in a tech environment, comes from all the senses.” 

 

After a day of exams and presentations before a jury of examiners, our Bachelor students graduated tuesday night in front or peers, family, examination committees and department heads, who took the stage to congratulate their students, sharing anecdotes of their challenges, obstacle and final successes.

During their graduation welcomes, Department heads often share anecdotes of particular students who confound them.  They speak affectionately of clashes, creative conflicts and personal exasperations. All part of the educational trajectory, the back and forth and final breakthroughs that make the learning process all the more meaningful.

Of particular note at last night’s ceremony was Simon Dogger who is blind.  Dogger graduated from the Man and Communication department.  “His success reveals that communication is never just visual,” said department head Catelijne van Middelkoop.  “Communication, even in a tech environment, comes from all the senses.”

2017 also produced the first class of graduates from Design Academy Eindhoven's newest department, Food Non Food.  Department head Marije Vogelzang gave an emotional speech thanking her students who "trusted, stayed, experimented and believed in a department that had no history or famous alumni to provide certainty.”   

The Food Non Food department ended this first full cycle with some of the best projects of 2017 including cum laude Marie Caye.  Her project “Sam” experiments with the potential of machines in a fictitious environment that affords technology agency to collaborate with their human interlocutors.
