Each year, the 3E Foundation, in collaboration with Royal SMIT Transformers BV, organises the national competition for the 3E – Royal SMIT BSc Awards. These prizes are given to the best BSc graduates from Universities of Applied Sciences or Technology in the Netherlands within the field of 3E.
Each University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands may nominate a specific graduation programme for this award. The nomination requirements are as follows: that the project was in the area of energy technology/electricity supply and that a grade minimum of 8 was reached.
Our employee Marcel Nijland was selected from HAN University of Applied Sciences in 2020. His graduation project was on a very topical subject: the connection of a wind farm at sea. In the end, Marcel came in at third place. What a great reward after such an instructive graduation period at IA Electrical Engineering!
