Het duurt niet lang meer, zo ongeveer nog 6 weken, en dan is het 15 maart. Tijd om weer vol goede moed op stap te gaan met je stempas en gebruik te maken van je kiesrecht. Maar weet jij eigenlijk al wat je gaat stemmen? Het hoger onderwijs zal weer hoog op de politieke agenda staan, maar welke standpunten vind jij belangrijk?
Studentenbonden, -verenigingen, hogescholen en universiteiten vanuit het hele land hebben de handen ineen geslagen. Op 13 februari van 16.30-17.30 worden in het auditorium in onze Aula de grote lijsttrekkers uitgedaagd om in debat te gaan met hun tegenstanders in hét lijsttrekkers debat over hoger onderwijs ‘De Student Kiest’.
Wat ga jij doen als je klaar bent met je bachelor of master? Misschien heb je wel een tussenjaar gepland, even pauze. Of je hebt je droombaan gevonden en je kunt niet wachten om te beginnen! Maar heb je wel eens overwogen om door te studeren of onderzoek te doen aan een universiteit of instituut in het buitenland? Meld je vóór 1 maart aan voor een beurs van het VSB fonds! Met een VSB beurs bepaal je zelf wat je gaat doen, waar dat is en waarom dan wel. Je kan tot wel 10.000 euro ontvangen.
Het VSB fonds stelt in 2017 twee beurzen beschikbaar aan studenten van de TU Delft die de ambitie hebben om zichzelf verder te ontwikkelen. Het geld wat je uiteindelijk krijgt, hangt af van je studieplan en de bijbehorende begroting. Specifiekere informatie over de voorwaarden en aanmeldprocedure vind je op de website van het VSBfonds. Je kunt ook altijd contact opnemen met het Central International Office.
Extra student work spaces
The days that students only came to the campus for lectures or lab work are long gone. You guys are here all day, either working together or study in quiet surroundings. And there are a lot of you, so we needed more and better study workplaces.
This January existing study workplaces were improved and extra places were realised. Here’s where they are: Continue reading
Yet another dreamteam has shown the world the innovative and technical strengths of the students of TU Delft. The Delft Hyperloop team won the Space X Hyperloop competition last weekend. Congrats guys!
29 teams from all over the world participated in the competition held by Elon Musk. They build ‘pods’ for the futuristic concept of Hyperloop, a transport system in which people and goods will travel through tubes with an incredible high speed. After months of preparations and design all teams got the chance to test their pods at SpaceX, Los Angeles, where a tube of 1,25 kilometers was built, trying to achieve the highest speed as possible. During the competition the pod of Delft hyperloop reached a speed of 90 km/h. In longer tubes the prototype should be able to reach up to 1200 km/h. Also the design and construction of the Delft prototype was awarded with the first prize!
Are you currently having the time of your life abroad because of your studies? Or were you abroad in the previous semester for an exchange or internship, voluntary work, to do research or take specific courses? You must have taken a bunch of pictures, that (will) remind you of these happy times! But did you know that next month, February, one of these pictures can earn you prices? WilWeg and Erasmus+ are looking for the ‘ultimate experience abroad’, and will therefore launch a photo contest.
Upload a photo that specifically illustrates your experience abroad on wilweg.nl/fotowedstrijd between 1 February and 28 February and you could win an Ipad (1th place), a GoPro camera (2nd place) or a Polaroid camera (3rd place). The winners will be announced in March.
After the contest has finished all photographs will be used for both online and offline promotion by Wilweg and Erasmus+. You can read more about these rules at the website.
