Visit to ASTRON by students of the Universities for Applied Sciences in the Northern Netherlands

Submitter: Ronald de Wild
Description: On the 18th of January, ASTRON welcomed a combined delegation of students of the northern universities for applied sciences: NHL Hogeschool Leeuwarden, Hanzehogeschool Groningen, and Hanze Institute of Technology in Assen.
A group of almost 40 students, with an educational background in applied sciences (varying from mechatronics and sensor technology to digital and RF electronics), paid their first-time visit to ASTRON.

A strictly scheduled program, consisting of a set of short presentations, a guided tour through the R&D-lab and a visit to the Dwingeloo-telescope, gave the students a good impression of the high-quality work done at ASTRON.
Ronald de Wild explained in his talk “The Fourier Transform in 30 minutes” why Fourier plays such an important role in modern astronomical systems and Hajee Pepping explained to the students our digital signal processing applications as developed by ASTRON in which cutting edge beamforming technologies demand for Big Data processing platforms like Uniboard.

An important visit, not only for the students but also for ASTRON’s R&D department, because among the students might be your colleagues of tomorrow!
