Meet the interns

Hot off the press. This week, these three top-notch students (Oscar, Raymond & Stefan) start their challenging internships at Mediaan. Their badass assignments: developing a smart ping pong table, optimizing the device wall and learning how to be an ‘ethical hacker’. Read all about these 3 gentlemen and their exciting projects for the upcoming months.

Oscar de Leeuw

Two years ago, I started my HBO bachelor ICT & Software at Fontys Eindhoven. During my internship, my goal is to build a smart ping pong table, that is able to judge a game of table tennis.

Two years ago, I started my HBO bachelor ICT & Software at Fontys Eindhoven. Before, I have tried Engineering Informatics at Eindhoven University of Technology for a period of 1 year, but the theoretical part didn’t really suit me. Fortunately, the HBO bachelor offered me the opportunity to learn more practically, and to search for the challenge on my own.

Last semester, I was able to execute an interesting project for a semester at Mediaan, instead of a standard school project. After this, I participated in the Mediaan IT Masterclass, which enabled me to learn more about Mediaan’s knowledge and expertise. Even more awesome: I’m selected to visit the USA, because I have won the Masterclass!

During my internship, my goal is to build a smart ping pong table, that is able to judge a game of table tennis by itself. This will be a very nice challenge, which will test my knowledge and problem solving abilities.

In addition, I hope that Mediaan’s professional guidance will provide me much experience in setting up and developing a whole new product.

Raymond Limpens

I study Software Engineering at Fontys University. I have chosen to graduate in the specialization Cyber Security. Within my internship project, I will learn how to be an ‘ethical hacker’ and develop a program that can automatically perform security scans on websites.

Raymond Limpens

My name is Raymond Limpens. I am 21 years old and live in Elsloo. At the moment, I study Software Engineering at Fontys University. I have chosen to graduate in the specialization Cyber ​​Security. This choice was mainly due to my pre-school ICT Management at the ROC Leeuwenborgh Sittard. During this education, my interest and passion for Cyber ​​Security was born.

I have come to know Mediaan through a software project, that we performed in the previous semester. During this project, we also had the opportunity to participate in the IT Masterclass. At the time of the masterclass, it became clear to me that I wanted to do my internship at Mediaan.

The assignment during my internship is project “Hackbear”. I will develop a program that can automatically perform security scans on websites. In the end a web service will allow a user to launch a scan on his websites.

During my internship, I hope to learn a lot about cyber security, especially in the ethical hacking of web services. In addition, I hope to gain a lot of knowledge in programming in Python. Also, I would like to learn about artificial intelligence and machine learning, especially because it is increasingly important in the cyber security field.

After 2 years of Informatica B at Avans Hogeschool’s-Hertogenbosch, I went out on a adventure to find my internship. My assignment is “device wall”: a so-called wall that connects several devices to perform user-interface tests for Android and iOS.

Stefan Willems

My name is Stefan Willems. A 20-year old student from Kessel, a town in central Limburg. After two years Informatica B at Avans Hogeschool’s-Hertogenbosch, I went on an adventure to find an internship.

Hogeschool Avans had a day organized to meet different companies. Most of the attending companies were located in North Brabant. Until I encountered a company that had a office in Limburg and also carried out projects in language C. This was of course: Mediaan.

There were several super interesting internship assignments at Mediaan. But the assignment I applied for is the device wall. This is a so-called wall where several devices are connected to in order to run user interface tests for Android and iOS.

Currently, the device wall retrieves information from the individual devices through a physical connection. This happens one by one. It is therefore my job to find a solution that allows to gain information of each device, without making connection to each separate device.

I am looking forward to a fun and educational time at Mediaan!
