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.

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! If you want to apply for a committee please email firstname.lastname@example.org. A resume or motivation is optional, so feel free to just tell him you are interested!
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 ParenTee is the committee responsible for showing the studies and university to students' parents. They do this by organising a 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.
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 alley! 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!
