Obituary Niels Overdijk »

Dear reader,

With pain in our hearts, we share that Niels Overdijk unexpectedly passed away last thursday, the 17th of October 2019. Niels was 20 years old.

In 2017, Niels started studying Technical Computer Science. Like many others, Niels joined the Kick-In where he soon made new friends in his do group Lorem Ipsum. Niels was also familiar with Inter-Actief as part of the LAN committee for a full year, where he helped organize two LANs. Niels could also be found at various other activities.

It affects us deeply to have to say goodbye to Niels. We wish his parents, family, friends and loved ones all our sympathies during these difficult times.

To say goodbye, a memorial room has been set up in Zi 1016. In this room there is the possibility to remember Niels either alone or together and to share memories. Everyone is invited to visit the memorial room and to leave a message. The room will be opened on tuesday and wednesday from 12:00 to 16:00.

If you are affected by this news and would like to talk to someone about it, our psychologists at the UT have extra appointments available for you to do so. You can make an appointment by calling +31 (0)53 489 2035 or at the ‘red desk’ at De Vrijhof building, floor 3, room 311. If you wish to talk about the death of a fellow student, you will be given a priority appointment. You can also talk to the study advisors. To make an appointment online, please go to ewi.planner.utwente.nl. You are also welcome to talk about Niels with both the study advisor and the student psychologist later in the year.

This week we will all take a moment to remember Niels. Therefore, all activities of Inter-Actief this week will be cancelled. This concerns the lunch lecture of Xsens, SNiC On Tour, the Study Trip Fuente interest lunch and the Low Latency Workshop by Optiver.

On behalf of the board, Kevin, Reinier, Gerrit-Willem, Denise, Patrick and Danique

Educational Bouquet - Klaas Sikkel »

Klaas is going to retire and as appreciation for his years of effort, he received the educational bouquet (and more...)

Unfortunatly, Klaas Sikkel is saying goodbye to enjoy his retirement. Klaas was responsible for the course Software Design in the Software Systems module and the module coordinator of the module Data & Information. Klaas was loved by loved by many students due to his enthousiasm, thoughtfulness, openness, and punctuality regard e-mail traffic. Because a single bouquet just isn't enough to cover the appreciation of all students, the Education Committee made a book available in which every student could write words of appreciation individually. The book and bouquet were handed over on the 5th of July at the Fat Friends of Grolsch Levend VI.

Do you know about the Quality Agreements? »


A while back, the Dutch study grant was replaced by a loan. It was decided that all money that became available due to the disappearance of the study grant has to be spend on education. The programme wants to actively involve students for input and asked Inter-Actief for help!

Based on last year’s input three examples of points of focus for coming years are: improve climate control of the Educafé, more rooms in EEMCS buildings for small project groups, expanding lecture recording facilities including metadata and editing.

In this survey, you can write down as many ideas as you can on how to improve the quality of your education. For example, more power sockets or better TA training. Once a decent amount of feedback has been gathered, there will be a second survey where you can vote on your favourite suggestions!

The survey can be found on the following URL: https://ictsv.nl/QA-survey
