Master selection AI
The Faculty Board of the FSE has definitely decided that admission to the MSc Programmes Artificial Intelligence and Human-Machine Communication will not be selective for the year 2018-2019, therefore every student with a Dutch BSc AI diploma will be admitted.
For the year 2019-2020, it is not yet clear whether the master programmes will become selective. However, this selection will be on the basis of academic performance, motivation and English language proficiency, i.e. not solely based on grades. If the programmes become selective, you will be informed timely.
Long term plan
One of the points from our policy plan is (re-)instating the long term plan. For this we have checked what previous boards did about this and collected that information as far as it was still relevant. However we would love to get the input from our members and see what they think is important for Cover to be focusing on the coming 5 years. So if you have an idea or something you think is important to put in the long term plan please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org!

The students are welcome for coffee from 09:30 and at 10:00 the event will kick off with an interesting guest speaker. During the day various workshops and lectures will be given and students can get a professional LinkedIn picture taken or their CV checked. The programme will end at 16:45 and then we will finish the day with networking drinks.

Also, we will need two people who can take pictures during the day. The volunteers will have to be present from 09:30 until 16:45, afterwards they are, of course, welcome to stay for a drink and the opportunity to talk to the alumni. The volunteers will receive a free lunch and a gift voucher as a reward for their efforts.
