Do you ever wonder what tasks and projects you will be doing in daily practice after finishing your Data Science study? Are you curious how a working day of a data scientist looks like? What’s it like to work for a large organisation as a data scientist? What do they expect from you? How will the atmosphere will be within the team and the organization? With which programs will I work? What are the projects I will be involved with as a data scientist? On Wednesday the 21st all your questions will be answered! Data scientists working at 13 large organizations will share with you how they apply data science in daily practice. Afterwards during the networking reception you can ask all the questions you have. Check out the link here for more information.

We want you to be in a committee!

Here is a cool thingy for our new members: Ever heard of a committee? A committee is a group of friends that work towards a common goal. You can learn about all sorts of topics such as budgeting, planning, sponsoring, and much more! See the website for a complete overview of committees that are looking for members!

Every year Cover organises the Introduction Day and Camp for first-year students of AI and CS. If you would like to be responsible for this amazing weekend filled with great activities and people, then sign up now for the IntroCee.


The ExCee (short for Excursion committee) is Cover's committee which organises the yearly excursion. So, if you like traveling, and organising this for your fellow peers, then sign up for this committee.


The PubliciTee is the committee that creates and/or prints posters for you. Actually, we are the committee that you can call somewhere in between the moment you need a poster and the moment you want to print it. In that way, the quality of the Cover posters is assured and committees are able to focus on other tasks, without having to worry about posters.


The ParenTee is the committee responsible for showing the studies and university to students' parents. They do this by organising a great parents day where you can invite your parents to take a tour. If you want to show your parents or your peers parents around, sign up for this committee.


Do you like to visit and talk to interesting companies? And are you enthusiastic about organizing nice lectures and workshops with them? Join the Committee of External Affairs and help Cover get its sponsor income for next year! Please mail to apply.


The PhotoCee takes astonishingly beautiful pictures and sometimes even video's during the various activities of Cover. In addition, we organise the annual Photo Contest and Photo Day. Sometimes we even organise a Photo Quiz or a Photo Chain Letter. We love to take almanac-, board- or committee pictures and are occasionally asked to take pictures at galas or similar activities. The PhotoCee owns a camera, the Covercamera, so even if you don't own one yourself it is still possible to join us! If you want to, we would like to teach you all the ins and outs of photography!


Is there a topic of which you could never tire? You would like to hear about different experts from the field for a whole afternoon? Then organising a symposium is right up your street! The SympoCee organises a symposium every year for this very purpose, to educate Cover members on a wider range of topics


The YearbookCee is very much self explanatory. They create the yearbook for every academic year. In this committee you get to decide the theme, design and create the content of the yearbook. You want a way to make your mark in Cover for years to come? The best place to do this is in the Yearbook.


Have you enjoyed the last edition of DisCover and would you like to help with the creation of the next version? Then join the DisCover, the committee that creates the magazine! As a member of the committee you are responsible for gathering, creating, and editing content, the lay-out of the magazine, and determining what goes into the magazine. We had a lot of fun creating it, and we are sure that you will too!


AC/DC stands for Advanced Computing / Digitalisation Committee and if web management and bug fixing is your kind of thing then this is the committee for you!


"ActiviTee" represents activities' committee. Every month, we organise at least three activities: a borrel every first Wednesday of the month in 't Gat van Groningen; a small activity; a big activity; and, besides this, we organise a big end of the year party in December and a special big activity before the summer break.


Do you like gaming at a LAN party, and programming assignments that make you feel like a wizkid when you finally solve them? Then maybe the LCDee might be for you; they organise LAN-parties and other events such as "Crash and Compile".


The Cover Room, the beating heart of Cover. The Memory keeps this heart beating but always making sure the room is open for a few hours every week. You get to decide how the interior looks as well as being in charge of the Thursday Afternoon Drinks every week.


The goal of the SporTee is to keep the members of Cover in shape by organising sporty and fun activities. Examples of such activities are dodge ball, ice skating and paint-balling. Would you like to organise activities with a sporty character, join the SporTee!


The StudCee is the committee that provides study related activities for Cover. They give study support lectures for courses in the degree programme, workshops to develop skills as well as managing an exams and summaries database. They have recently created CACTuS (Cover's Advanced Course Tutoring System) which allows our members to find tutors easily. Their goal is to make sure that members have the tools needed to pass their courses while making the sessions as engaging and fun for the students as they possibly can.
