Education bouquet - Andreas Peter »
Andreas Peter received the education bouquet on the 4th of December.
Andreas Peter is, amongst other courses, responsible for the Cryptography Pearl in the Pearls of Computer Science module. Students find his lectures entertaining and are regarded as most engaging by the first-year students. He gave more freedom without compromising quality and thought about more than just conveying the material. In addition, he thought about how to introduce students to the different university approach to responsibilities. Students seem to appreciate the extra time he put into explaining things outside of the lectures. All this effort is acknowledged by the students via the education bouquet!
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 bachelor Technical Computer Science has been given the predicate Top rated programme for the second year in a row by the Keuzegids!
This seal is granted to studies scoring 75 points or higher in the Keuzegids (decision guide). We wholeheartedly congratulate the many teachers, staff and students who made this possible, and hope that we as a study association have contributed our part in this, now and in the future.
To celebrate this achievement with the faculty a lunch (with kroketten) will be organised coming Monday 19th of November during the lunch break in SmartXP. All TCS students are cordially invited to attend!

New programme directors BIT and CS »
We congratulate Maria Iacob (BIT) and Arend Rensink (CS) with their appointment! But what does it mean you?
The programme director is responsible for the education quality within a specific programme. They can have an enormeous influence, but in all likelihood there won't be any large enough changes that will noticeable to you as a student. In case there will be, please note that the programme director takes advice from the programme committee, which has student members and is easily contactable!
Official announcement (Source)
Prof dr M.E. (Maria) Iacob (research group IEBIS at BMS) will succeed dr L. (Luís) Ferreira Pires as director of the BIT programme. In this way, we execute the agreement that the directorship of this programme is alternately filled by both faculties EEMCS and BMS.
Prof ir A. (Arend) Rensink will be the new programme director of Computer Science, starting 1 September. He succeeds prof.dr.ir. G.J. (Geert) Heijenk, who was programme director for a period of more than 3 years.
I am convinced that both programmes are in good hands with the new programme directors and I wish Maria and Arend all the best in their new roles.

Joost Kok Dean

Guides for the Bachelor Day in Kick-In »
Do you want help a great cause and have some spare time on 27th of August from 9:00 – 14:00? Guide our Bachelor kiddos!
Are you ready to help the parents and take their responsibility off their shoulders for (almost) a day? You have a chance to do so by becoming an activist during the Bachelor Day organized by the Kick-IT!
As in the previous years, Bachelor Day will be an educational day of the Kick-In when kiddos will have a few meetings with important people they will meet later in their study programme, sign for Osiris and Canvas, get to know Inter-Actief and possibly join our association!
Your job would be to show them around a bit, guiding them to the specific rooms where the activities will be prepared. Therefore, we require an activist to know most common rooms/places on the campus and to be communicative and enthusiastic so the kiddos don’t get scared of by the amount of information they receive.
If you’re interested in becoming an activist, please contact us via email: email@example.com
Be a mentor for the Master Kick-In »
Too old for the Kick-In? On the contrary!
Become a mentor for the EEMCS master Kick-In! Together with another mentor, you'll guide around ~15 new master students who want to get to know the Netherlands, explore the campus and party. Naturally, you will get to enjoy the general Kick-In activities. Your role is to keep an eye on the (already quite independent) new students and show them what student life is like here. Start your year with a blast ...while making a difference!
Not a master student yourself?
Even if you’re still doing your bachelor or will be starting your master you can still become a mentor. Information about the study programme will be provided by the faculty, you only need to know the city and the campus.
Vacancy for BITOC minutes secretary »
The BITOC, the programme committee of the Business & IT and Business Information Technology, is looking for a minutes secretary starting September 2018.
As a minutes secretary, you will join our monthly meetings and take notes. The meetings will also be recorded for the purpose of creating and expanding the minutes afterwards. This means that you'll also need to finalize the minutes after every meeting and have them ready in advance of the next meeting.
Needless to say, this is a paid job, and you will work in close collaboration with the CES (former BOZ) colleagues responsible for our programmes.
If you are interested, please contact the BITOC students via firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do so as soon as possible, given the approaching holidays.
on behalf of the entire BITOC
Vacancy for Education Evaluation Committee »
The OEC (the Education Evaluation Committee) is looking for new members!

As a member of the committee you will organise (the hopefully well known) panel meetings for bachelor modules. This will cost ~10 hours per module. If you are interested, or if you have any questions, please send us an e-mail!
