HBO-ICT Software Engineering

2016 – 2019, Hogeschool van Amsterdam, Amsterdam.

When I switched in 2016 switched from “Game Development” to the “Software Engineering” specialisation, I immediately started my internship. I didn’t learn a lot here, most of my knowledge comes from my work experience.

Dutch driver’s license AM, B

2014 – 2015, Rijschool Green, Amstelveen.

Standard Dutch license for manual transmission car and moped. About 30 hours of practical lessons, and a weekend workshop for the theory. Not sure what to write about this, it’s a driver’s license, so why not put it on my resume, someone might care. To make it slightly more interesting, I passed on my first try.

HBO-ICT Game Development

2014 – 2016, Hogeschool van Amsterdam, Amsterdam.

In 2014 I started the HBO (Dutch acronym for “Higher Workforce Education”, it’s college) ICT (“Information Computer Technologies”) study, the “Game Development” speciality. Initially I thought it would be fun to learn about IT using games. But after my first year I figured out that it was a standard IT study, with a Game Development sticker. Every time it got interesting, there would be a “you don’t have to know about that”.

So in 2016 I decided to switch to the “Software Engineering” speciality. With the hope that it would go a bit more into detail on the technical components, they did not.

School of Higher General Secondary Education

2012 – 2014, Altra College, Amsterdam.

In 2012 I joined in the 3rd class. I followed the “Nature & Technical” package. It was a school with smaller classes, but no speciality.

In 2014 I received my HAVO diploma, without any failing marks, like most people.

School of Higher General Secondary Education

2008 – 2012, Gerrit van der Veen College, Amsterdam.

The Dutch secondary education system has 3 (basic) levels: VMBO the lowest, HAVO the middle, and VWO the highest.

In 2008 I started my first year which was HAVO/VWO, the second and third year I did VWO. This wasn’t for me, and I switched to HAVO.

It was a creative school, with many artsy classes. While it was fun, I’m more of a technical person.

In 2012 I switched schools, for the smaller classes and more hands-on approach.
