As co-founder of NovaFAST, I am responsible for getting the student team started. The role I had as Team Captain is to connect NovaFAST with different studies within Fontys, keep an overview of all assignments that are done, recruit new members, in short create continuity for the team. With these efforts we now have a good basis on which to build the team. Furthermore, Automotive Engineering is really my profession and I enjoy helping in all the projects that are currently going on for NovaFAST.

Jelle De Kort


As an advisor and former member of NovaFAST, I advise the current team as needed, building on the knowledge I gained during my tenure at NovaFAST. This knowledge includes working in a project environment, working in small teams, and bringing the whole project together to integrate into a vehicle. Furthermore, I support the existing team by staying in touch with InSumma Innovation, one of our suppliers.
I couldn’t think of a better project to integrate my knowledge as the owner of an electric car powered mainly by solar power and an automotive engineer.
