Melvin van Melzen (2016 alumnus)

Junior consultant new energy technologies at DNV GL (energy advisory)

The reason why I have chosen the 4TU CME Master programme is that I always had an interest in construction projects, but I wasn’t sure of the bachelor I was going to follow. My bachelor Advanced Technology at the University of Twente allowed me to postpone my decision but I was sure to follow up with a master in civil engineering. However, while volunteering in many fun things I discovered that my real talent was not in engineering but in organizing and managing engineering projects.
As a great addition to an engineering bachelor CME appeared. The programme had a great combination of both engineering and management but with a focus on the latter.
Each of the 4TU CME location has its own specializations. Despite I did my Bachelor studies in Twente, I decided to choose to do CME in Eindhoven because it is more focused on entrepreneurial skills and project and process management skills.

Inherent flexibility!

In my first year I got to learn the CME corner stones and on the conference I learned about smart cities, smart grids and energy storage. This peeked my interest so in my second year I focused on these topics. The specific topic of energy innovation in the build environment made that I even got more excited, so I was going to focus on energy and energy storage for my master thesis. The inherent flexibility of CME was perfect to get to know this topic and apply it in most of my courses.

Great combination of building and entrepreneurship

What I liked the most in my CME Master programme was the combination of building and entrepreneurial courses. Entrepreneurial courses allowed me to understand business case conditions and financial performance of projects. Building a business case is based on both qualitative and quantitative conditions. This combination was great since it allows me know to capitalize innovations.

CME in my current job

In my job as Junior consultant new energy technologies I use my financial knowledge to build business cases and financial performance. Project management and process management skills are very useful when collaborating. The fully English program helped me to master the language.

Looking back over the two years and the knowledge I need in my current job, the CME programme was exactly what I was looking for!
