Leer het echte Delft kennen met de Cultural Professor 2016

CulturalProf

Ben jij naast alle algebra en theorie toe aan een beetje creativiteit? Zet je linkerhersenhelft aan het werk in de masterclass van de nieuwe Cultural Professor van de TU Delft! In verschillende masterclass bijeenkomsten van oktober tot december zal Griet Op De Beeck samen met studenten een staalkaart van de Delftse bevolking tot stand brengen.

Het thema van dit jaar is Delft. Studenten gaan de stad in om uiteenlopende locaties met Delftenaren in gesprek gaan en die ze later al schrijvend zullen portretteren. Zo komen ze tot een divers en fascinerend beeld van hun stad. Als tegenprestatie voor de verhalen die zij krijgen, maakt elk van de studenten op zijn of haar beurt een zelfportret (gedicht, tekening, foto) voor de Delftenaar. Bij de masterclass hoort ook een excursie op 8 en 9 oktober naar Gent en de gevangenisvan Oudenaarde. In de gevangenis maken de studenten kennis met de gedetineerden en hun verhalen.

 
CultProf

Ben jij benieuwd wie naast studenten onze mooie stad bevolkt? Ga de uitdaging aan en meld je aan voor de masterclass! Kijk voor de kwalificatieopdracht op de website; tudelft.nl/cp2016. Let op, aanmelden kan tot 23 september.

Geen tijd voor de hele Masterclass, maar ben je wel geïnteresseerd in wat Griet te vertellen heeft? Er ook openbare bijeenkomsten op vrijdag 7 Oktober en 16 December. Studenten van de TU betalen €5,-. Voor meer informatie, bezoek tudelft.nl/cp2016.

Elk jaar kiest TU Delft een cultural professor voor een serie masterclasses. Het doel is elk jaar anders en varieert van een studie naar fotografie tot een standbeeld maken. Het thema wordt gekozen door de cultural professor zelf. De afgelopen jaren waren dit bijvoorbeeld Pauline Cornelisse, Spinvis en Thom Hoffman.

Long live Coffee-star Library!

Coffee-star Library vernieuwing-sloop

The brave people still on campus already noticed: Coffee-star Library is under construction. Not only will it expand, but the fresh new renovation will give everyone more room to study, relax and enjoy their coffee or tea. Check out the fancy render of the new look below. Bear in mind for your point of view, the main Library entrance is to your right.

Coffee-star Library vernieuwing

You can still get Coffee-star coffee at the Library! After you enter the library, take a right. Behind the current exhibition on skyscrapers (which is also seriously cool, go check that out), you can find the pop-up Coffee-star. The baristas over there are camping out in the Library and serving us coffee as well as they can, so be nice to them.

Second minor enrolment period starts 1 july – list of unavailable minors

Are you in your second BSc year and not yet registered for a minor next year? Make sure to apply for a thematic minor during the second minor registration period, starting 1 July! Log into Osiris and register for one the available minors that you wish to study.

Since the first registration period has passed, minors now have limited space or are already full. We’d love to provide you with a list of all the minors that are still available per 1 July if we could, but the minors on this list could be full within minutes after the registration in Osiris opens again. Such a list would be inaccurate within minutes. What we can do is give you a list of the minors that are definitely full and for which you cannot register any more.

The following minors are not available at the start of the second minor registration period, starting July 1:

Name minor Code
Advanced Prototyping IO-MI-135
Airport of the Future LR-MI-167
Automotive Design IO-MI-165
Biomedical Engineering BME-MI-087
De Delta Denker: water voor later CT-MI-166
Educatie SEC-MI-049
Finance TW-MI-097
Interactive Environments IO-MI-124
International Entrepreneurship and Development WM-MI-101
Mathematical Finance TW-MI-187
Ondernemerschap: Technology Based Entrepreneurship MOT-MI-088
Projectmanagement from Nano to Mega CT-MI-174
Retail Design BK-MI-145
Robotica WB-MI-168
Software Design and Application TI-MI-110
Spaceflight LR-MI-185
Sports Innovation IO-MI-164
Sustainable Design Engineering IO-MI-073
Zeiljachten MT-MI-105

 

Take a look at minors.tudelft.nl to check which of the still available minors you would like to study. Though keep in mind that you should always have a back-up minor since the minor of your first choice could also be the first choice of many other students. As the registration works by ‘first come, first serve’, your preferred minor could be filled within seconds after the registration has opened, as described above.

Comin’ right up: new food options on campus

Our academic year is nearing its end. We are all busy studying for our last exams or working hard towards the last deadlines of the year. To keep our energy levels up (and sometimes also to just stay awake) we rush to the restaurants and coffee corners on our campus.

3mE_1920x1080_horeca zomer

After listening to student and employee feedback (through the NSE discussions for instance) the university looked at how to better meet the food demands of students and staff.

So:

The current cafeterias in the faculties are being converted into Food & Beverage Corners with a basic range of good espresso coffee, sandwiches, salads, soups and hot snacks. Or you can create your own coffee specialty in the self-service coffee bars from DE Coffee Kitchen and Starbucks. Study or just chill out in the seats around. The food and beverage offerings are geared to every faculty’s specific needs.

But of course it does not stop there! The university has lots of plans regarding the on-campus horeca. You can read all about it in this article.

Quick summary:

  • Food market in The Fellowship (open summer 2016) with La Casa Kitchen (Mediterranean) Soep & Ballen (Dutch) and the Satébar (Asian).
  • The renovated Sports Café/restaurant will reopen in September 2016.
  • Food market in the new PULSE building between IO and 3mE (open summer 2017).
  • A Food & Beverage Corner Plus will be opened in the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment in the summer of 2017, with a wide selection, including hot dishes.

Where to eat during summer?

This leaves us  to inform you about the opening hours of the current restaurants and coffee corners at campus during the summer months. Bon appétit! Click to enlarge
