TAB-Talk: Anita & Inge (Alledaags)

Thu 26 May, 16:00, CACHE (Cover room)

One question that everyone who studies is asked is: “Do you already know what you are going to do after you’ve finished your thesis?”

After Anita Drenthen and Inge Doesburg finished their HMC master they went to work for a small company in Groningen that makes digital products. They will tell you something about what part of their study they apply in practice, and how working for a company is surprisingly similar as being with the university, or completely different.

But this is a TAB-talk, so if they want to digress to something else, or you want to ask questions about how to select your master programme, it is still a perfectly valid excuse to come by the CACHE Thursday the 26th.
