Committee for Education Evaluation Panels »
The OEC has organized panel meetings to assess the quality of education. As the main language for BIT and TCS is changed to English the OEC is renamed into CEEP.
OEC is now CEEP!
For over 20 years, the OEC has organized panel meetings to assess the quality of education and gather feedback from students. A few years ago, the educational programmes Business & IT and Technical Computer Science switched their main language to English. Up until now, the OEC had continued under the same name as ever, though more and more using their abbreviation as a nickname, slowly moving away from the Dutch name Onderwijsevaluatiecommissie.
At some point, we decided that this name was not up to date anymore and an English one should be chosen. This is why we hereby introduce you to the new OEC, the CEEP (Committee for Education Evaluation Panels). Structurally, not much has changed, but where you previously saw OEC we will now use CEEP in all our correspondence. Also, our website-URL has been updated to utwente.nl/ceep-cs-bit and we will happily receive emails from you at email@example.com. For now, the old addresses should also remain active, but they will probably be phased out at some point, and to prevent confusion we will clarify in the first public announcements that the CEEP is formerly known as the OEC.
We hope to see you soon at one of our panel evaluations!
Best regards, Niels de Groot Secretary CEEP
Q&A session for the TCS programme »
Wednesday the 6th of January a Question & Answer session will take place for the TCS students, the programme director and the programme management will answer your question.
During this Question & Answer session the programme staff will answer the questions you have about your the consequences of Corona or the TCS programme in general. To prepare for this Q&A we ask you to send any questions you already have beforehand to firstname.lastname@example.org or put them in our Discord.

The University is looking at ways to reduce group sizes during exams, however this comes with some caveats. Give your opinion on the matter!
The Executive Board has looked into the possibilities for reducing the group size during exams, but as a result concluded that this might affect the amount of evening lectures and exams that have to be scheduled per week. A discussion will soon be held on this topic in the University Council and we would like to know the opinion of the students on this topic.
So share your opinions through this form to help the university decide on what actions to take!
Inter-Actief room temporarily closed »
Because of the new Corona measures the Inter-Actief room is closed for all members for the next two weeks.
Because of this, we are not physically reachable for our members. However, we are still reachable by phone during our regular opening times (9:00 - 16:00 o'clock), and you can still reach us on our Discord server. If the restrictions are being relaxed again by the University after 2 weeks, we will look into opening our room again for members.
We can imagine that it is not always easy to study mostly from home in these corona times. Therefore, we would like to know what is going on among all our first-year students.
Dear first-year students,
Your well-being is important to the UT. We sincerely hope that you are doing well and you enjoy your new study program. We can, however, imagine that it is not always easy to study mostly from home in these corona times. Therefore, we would like to know what is going on among all our first-year students. How are you doing? Are you usually feeling on top of the world or are you dealing with stress quite often? Do you feel embedded in the student community? And how do you experience your hybrid education? Perhaps you have already received the email about this, but from the study association we would like to support this study by also sharing it here!
Why do it?
- Your answers will help your study program to improve their education and help them get insight in how you are doing
- You will receive personal feedback in November, which provides you with insight in how you are doing compared to other first-year students. We can guide you towards the right support if needed.
- You have a chance of winning €50!
Please click this link to fill in the survey. The deadline for this survey is the 5th of November. It will take you roughly 10-15 minutes.
You can watch the following video (1 min) which explains the research further: https://vimeo.com/467101732.
Master Open day: Looking for students »
On November 12, the open day for prospective master students will take place. The university is looking for people who are willing to help out organizing this day.
On the 12th of November there will be an open day to help prospective students select a master program at our University. This year that day will be online, for obvious reasons. With this new format come some challenges and we need your help to make the open day for Computer Science into a success! We are looking for students that would like to help out with:
-A short contribution to an introductory video, where you tell about your own motivation and experience in your study programme;
-Digital chats, where you can help answer questions by the visitors;
-Chat moderation, manage questions from the visitors and brings them up during the live presentation;
-Technical support, where you can help avoid those awkward moments where the technology does not work out and where you can help manage the livestream.
Besides some preparation, you will only be working during the open day itself. The time investment is limited, and your hours will be reimbursed by the University, making this the perfect side-job!
(One caveat: for students who need a work permit and do not have one yet, we will have to organise payment in some other way; we can’t ignore that requirement.)
If you are interested in this job, or would like more information, please contact Kevin Witlox (email@example.com).

The Programme Committee - Computer Science is looking for new student members.
If you would like to have a say in how Computer Science at this university changes, this is the right committee for you.
We meet monthly to discuss and decide on how to improve the CS curriculum, inspect the feedback given by the students about the modules/courses and encourage module coordinators/lecturers to reflect on the modules/courses in order to improve them every year. Any large modifications are brought to us and we do our best to inspect and improve them. The committee consists of teachers, students and other programme staff. To find out more visit www.utwente.nl/en/tcs/organisation/programme-committee/.
If you are a computer science student and this sounds like something for you please send an email to Niek Khasuntsev (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Corona Measures »
The university is gradually opening more for on campus education, but it is very important we adhere to the measures against the corona virus.
If you have mild complaints or symptoms, do not come to physical lectures or exams. If you have an exam or another mandatory lecture, email your professor and the study advisor, they will do their best to accommodate this as well as possible. In the event of a missed exam, you can contact the study advisor to try to arrange an additional resit.
On a more positive note: The resource booker of the University is once again offering study places and project rooms for students. Again keep in mind the rules set by the University!
