Study (Panic) Room

Study Room

During the exam period room BB 5161.0041b (aka, the room next to the Cover Room) will transform into our study room also for the last week of the exam period. It's a quiet space away from the overfull Study Landscape with free tea and coffee available just next door.

Next week, we do ...

Open Board Meeting

Are you interested in what the board does? The pivotal moment of a board member's working week is the Board Meeting. If you want to get the real board experience, the Open Board Meeting is a great opportunity. Everyone is welcome to join and see how the board makes decisions, handles issues and drinks lots of coffee!

Support Lecture

Struggling with those pesky pointers? Can't figure out your priority queues? We're here to help with a brand new support lecture! We'll be going through some past exams, answering some multiple choice questions and practicing some code. so get in line! (or queue).

We want you to be in 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!

RoomCee: The Cover Room is the beating heart of Cover. The RoomCee keeps the room open and organised. You get to decide how the interior looks and you are in charge of the Thursday Afternoon Drinks every week.

HEROcee: This is Cover's safest committee. The members of this committee can be asked to perform as an ERO at several activities. If something happens around the Cover Room we can of course also be of help. Apply if you are interested in being a true HERO.

PropaganDee: The PropaganDee is the committee that designs, creates and prints posters for Cover. They assure the quality of Cover's promotion.

Studcee: 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 a tutoring system which allows our members to find tutors easily.

Via the survey, you can give your opinion on Progresswww, Ocasys, and the scheduling site, and suggest improvements.

GEBC: The Groningen Engineering Business Center (GEBC) is a center associated to the Faculty of Science and Engineering which primary goal is to introduce students to companies in the North of the Netherlands and vice versa. One of the things we organise is matching of students and companies in internships, graduation projects and/or research projects. We would like to know what a student is looking for when searching for such a project. We would be very grateful if you could fill in this short questionnaire.

Nacht van Eindhoven: This year CQM organizes the Nacht van Eindhoven once again. During the night of May 16 - May 17, student teams will compete with each other in the area of data science, applied statistics and operations research. The teams will be challenged by four assignments that are inspired by the daily work of CQM. Solving the assignments requires a combination of advising, programming, creativity, analytical thinking and speed to obtain the best solution. The three best teams are awarded with eternal fame and a cash prize. More information can be found on here or on Facebook.
