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 (email@example.com).
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!

Obituary Dr. Harry Aarts »
With pain in our hearts we inform you that the beloved Harry Aarts has passed away at the age of 59, on Sunday the 9th of August.
Harry was an enthusiastic Mathematics professor beloved by many students, because of his enthusiastic teaching style and patient support for all students. Harry had worked at the university for almost 25 years, at the EEMCS faculty.
Within Inter-Actief Harry Aarts was so well appreciated that he managed to win almost every Computer Science teaching award for which he was nominated. For this reason a special clause had to be added to the award that stated professors could only be nominated every other year, the so-called "Harry Aarts" clause.
We will miss Harry dearly, with his friendly smile, and his clear passion for teaching.
Everyone has the opportunity to share their memories and stories of Harry via this website.
Our deepest condolences to his family and friends.
On behalf of the Board of Inter-Actief.
Lustrum theme announced! »
The theme for next year's lustrum has been announced!
The 8th lustrum of Inter-Actief will take you on a trip down memory lane, reliving the moments and memories that brought us to where we are now. We will celebrate 40 years of history and together we will create new memories in a year filled with activities and entertainment. The pixels that create our association - that’s what this lustrum is about.
You can find the theme announcement here!
For the upcoming year, the candidate board is looking into setting up a yearbook/almanac committee.
This committee will be responsible for the development of an awesome yearbook/almanac that displays everything that Inter-Actief has had to offer throughout the year(s), for example with information on members, committees, activities, etc. It should provide members with an item that brings back amazing memories whenever they read it through in the future. As long as that goal is kept in mind, there is lots of freedom when it comes to the actual contents.
If you are interested in joining the committee that will be responsible for creating such a memorable piece of Inter-Actief's history, do not hesitate and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Educational Bouquet Q3 »
To thank all teachers for their hard work in quickly switching to online education, the teachers of Q3 have all been awarded an educational bouquet!
The past few weeks our education has been vastly different than before. Lectures are online instead of in lecture halls, tests have been changed so they can be taken remotely and everyone is now working from home.
This massive change required some effort from students, but more importantly, it required an enormous amount of adaptability from the teachers. Within the span of a week, they were able to completely change their courses and modules to an online version where students could continue learning, albeit from their own homes. Of course, there were some hiccups along the way and everything isn’t perfect, but the overall way everything has been adapted to online education is great!
Over the past weeks, we have received lots of messages of praise for different teachers on the responsiveness and adaptability of entire module teams as well as specific teachers. Other messages specifically state the quality of the online lectures. Because all teachers of Q3 have worked incredibly hard to still give the students the education they deserve, even in these troubling times, we think that all of them deserve an educational bouquet for their hard work!
As there are so many teachers, we created a slightly different version of our normal 'educational bouquet'; a card with a message from the students which can be planted to create a beautiful bouquet of flowers, which will be sent to all teachers as soon as possible!
All teachers who will be receiving the educational bouquet: Pieter-Tjerk de Boer, Geert Heijenk, Bernd Meijerink, Rico van Lingen, Evonne van Genderen, Marc Uetz, Faizan Ahmed, Carlos Budde, Ruben Hoeksma, Jasper de Jong, Walter Kern, Stefan Klootwijk, Rom Langerak, Bodo Manthey, Lerna Pehlivan, Jan Willem Polderman, Victor Reijnders, Alexander Skopalik, Yeray Barrios Fleitas, Ansgar Fehnker, Luis Ferreira Pires, Jeroen Klein Brinke, Patrick Smith, Jeff White, Sage Cammers-Goodwin, Maurice van Keulen, Christin Seifert, Andreas Peter, Tom van Dijk, Marco Bekooij, Marielle Stoelinga, Djurre van der Wal, Marianne Junger, Nicola Strisciuglio, Mannes Poel, Faiza Bukhsh, Elena Mocanu, Karin Groothuis-Oudshoorn, Anna Sperotto, Aiko Pras, Jair Cardoso de Santanna, Maarten Everts, Jasper Goseling, Joost Pieter Katoen, Marcus Gerhold, Marieke Huisman, Susan Bayhan, Leon de Vries, João Moreira, Wallace Corbo Ugulino, Marten van Sinderen, Rob Bemthuis, Adina Aldea, Asad Abdiesfandani, Anton Stoorvogel, Martijn Koot, Heather Wilson, Lucas Meertens, Jos van Hillegersberg, Efthymios Constantinides, Lesley Broos, Abhista Abhistha, Verena Schulze Greiving-Stimberg, Joyce van Baaren, Hans Moonen, Ellen van Oost, Maya Daneva, João Luis Moreira, Daniel Smits, Olivia Plant, Bart Nieuwenhuis, Guido Bruinsma, Mike Monson
Do you know someone who is extremely committed to improve the quality of education or is always willing to help students without hesitation? Then, what are you waiting for? Nominate him or her for the education bouquet! Think for example of a teacher who gives extra lectures or a student assistent who is making hours in overtime to help each and everyone of you! You can nominate someone by going to this page.

The University of Twente seems to have found out about study associations finding ways to avoid the alcohol convenant.
Since the University buildings have closed, associations have tried alternatives to have their weekly drinks online. However, research found out that 60-70% of the online drink attendees live on campus, resulting in the activity to be considered on campus following UT rules. In addition, people are serving drinks themselves while being far from sober, besides not having a valid IVA certificate. The UT considers this as violation of the alcohol convenant, and has therefore decided not to allow any more alcoholic beverages during online drinks via Discord, Google Meet, Skype and other online video platforms.
Unfortunately, Inter-Actief sees no other option than to follow these new rules set by the University. We will therefore no longer allow beer or other alcoholic beverages during our online drinks, but we will leave the online Abscint on the Inter-Actief Discord server open to have a chat while enjoying a non-alcoholic beer or soda. Naturally, we hope that the UT buildings will be opened again soon, so we can finally go back to our beloved Abscint to have a real, non-virtual beer!
Stay safe, and stay home!
Kevin, Reinier, Gerrit-Willem, Denise, Patrick and Danique.
