In the year 2007, The two Fontys studies Mechanical engineering and Electrical engineering merged to Fontys Engineering. At that time there were two active study associations within the Engineering part of Fontys university. W.S.V. Hoefnix for mechanical engineering and S.G. PulsE for electrical engineering. A year later in 2008, in addition to the existing two studies, Fontys Engineering decided to start a mechatronics study. Also in the beginning of the 2009 school year, engineering got less space within the building. whereby both associations had to start sharing one room. This gave the reason for both associations to merge together.
After intensive meetings of the Advisory Board the result was that later that year there was a joint introduction week. The new study Association for Engineering is born in the middle of the year 2009:: SV. Innovum. In addition to the already represented studies (mechanical, electrical an mechatronics) the study Automotive also joined Innovum. After that Innovum became the face of all technical HBO studies in Eindhoven.
