My name is Jacco van de Laar and I am the trainer for the following courses: System Engineering, System Release and Engineering Tools & Methods.
Educated as a Mechanical Engineer (major in: systems control) at the University of Technology in Eindhoven, I have worked in system development for almost twenty years in the fields of machinery, medical devices and semicon in various companies. My work experience in system development focusses on the system level, both the Engineering (left side V model); as Systems Engineer, responsible for the technical overview from definition and design phase to system integration and release phase, and the Release (right side V model); as Test Architect, responsible for the system level integration, test and release of a commercial available system.
In the last five years I have gained a varse experience in developing, organising and, with great joy, training groups of course participants, confirming it being one of my biggest passions. I have trained over 200 enthousiastic course participants given them an inside view on system development and introducing them to practical tools and methods usable in day-to-day work within a development and engineering work environment. My trainings are not aimed at bombarding the participant with theoretical wisdom such they can pass an exam at the end. We are not at school anymore! The classes can be characterized in learning by doing, in an interactive, motivating and entertaining atmosphere in which you are challenged to actively participate by sharing your experiences, your ideas and wishes to improve.
I am looking forward to seeing you in the courses and with your energetic participation we will make them a success!
