TopiConf 2016

Wed 25 May, 10:00, Deventer

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.

The year is coming to an end, so it is time for the yearbook to be handed out! This borrel will be the ultimate opportunity to get a book that helps you remember all the time you have wasted this year.

That means that this is a borrel you can’t miss!

The first 120 beers will be € 0.50 each. At 23:00 there will be snacks, followed by the presentation of the yearbook. Be sure to be there on time, so you don’t miss out on anything!
