/ 2019 - 2020 / Augmented Reality Tech Intern


As part of the graduate degree Computer Science and Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology, students can choose to do an internship of 15 ECTS. The goal of this internship is for the student to gain experience in the future work field and an be carried out in academia or in the industry.

&samhoud creative tech is a company based in Amsterdam and is part of the &samhoud group. &samhoud creative tech is, as the name implies, a creative tech house and is home to a multidisciplinary team of creatives, designers, developers, strategists, and marketeers. They help their partners in multiple ways, from strategy to creative concept, and ultimately to digital production. The company is known for their campaigns and products built on innovative tech such as augmented and virtual reality.

The internship lasted for 17 weeks and consisted of two parts. The first part was being a direct part of the technical team, which consists of four employees: The Chief Technology Officer and three Unity developers. In short, this translated itself to active participation in the technical realization of customer projects and support to the technical team where possible. This entails researching the possibilities and potential of innovative technologies, contributing to the concept realization of their products and services on a technical level and Unity development activities. The internship included me in the process of new projects (which started in October 2019) from start to end. Additionally, the internship tasked me to conduct research into the possibilities and potential of applying innovative technologies.
