The Education Director of electrical engineering at TUE, Sjoerd Hulshof said in a statement "Laurent is the fastest student we have ever had here".
As a toddler, Laurent Simons preferred to take his toys apart so he could fix, instead of playing with them.
From then on, Laurent was given test after test, which he aced with flying colours.
"They noticed something very special about Laurent", Lydia said, adding that he was tested many times and joking that her son learns so quickly because "I ate a lot of fish during the pregnancy".
The big question is where Laurent will go next as he is keen to embark on a PhD program in electrical engineering while also studying for a medicine degree. "They told us he is like a sponge".
No one knows from where Laurent's hyper-intelligence comes from but Laurent DOES come from a family of doctors.
"We don't want him to get too serious", Alexander said.
Laurent, who has a photographic memory, has completed his degree in just nine months and his tutor believes he is at least three times smarter than the next most intelligent student he's met in his career.

Kaepernick invites National Football League teams to workout
According to his representative he has been working out five days a week for the past three years and is ready to play. Notably, the Dallas Cowboys are at least one team that are interested in being present at the workout.
"Special students that have good reasons for doing so can arrange an adjusted schedule".
He shared that his goal in life is to develop artificial organs, which suits his personality, as Hulshof also described the young boy as "very sympathetic".
Asked where he'd like to continue his studies, Laurent simply told the Telegraph: "I really want to go to California, the weather is nice there".
It is gathered that some prestitgious universities from around the world have shown interest in Laurent's progress although his family is coy about naming which of them he is considering for his PhD.
But he's also an ordinary kid who enjoys playing with his dog Sammy and fiddling with his cell phone.
"The absorption of information is no problem for Laurent", said his father. "The focus will be on research and applying the knowledge to discover new things", his father said.
In the meantime, Laurent has to finish his bachelor's degree and choose which academic institution will play host to the next stage in his remarkable journey.
A 9-YEAR-OLD boy who is set to become the youngest ever person to complete a degree, is inundated by offers from the world's top universities for post-graduate studies.
