Happy New Year!

Hello everyone,

We're back! I hope everyone had a great Christmas break and was able to relax and recharge before the upcoming exams.

This week will have a rather short newsletter, but I would like to ask everyone to read it fully. Down in the nice to know section there is a selection of interesting initiatives and events you could partake in! And two of them are also very sustainable, making them even more exciting!

We currently only have one upcoming event, but it is an important one! Next week there will be a General Assembly. A General Assembly is a meeting to which every member (and only those) is invited to discuss the future and current state of the association. All major decisions are made at General Assemblies, so, needless to say, it is important that as many members as possible are present. Please join us during this important event!

And that was it! I would like wish everyone the best of luck with exam preparations, and I will see you again next week!

Hasta la vista,


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!

ExCee: The ExCee has only one task. Together they try to organize an awesome trip within Europe. This trip involves company visits, university visits, and the general opportunity to experience some culture.

IntroCee: The IntroCee organises the introduction period for first year students. From the introcamp to the barbecue, and everything in between, this committee makes sure every first year has an unforgettable first week!

PhotoCee: The PhotoCee makes sure that Cover has astonishing pictures from the events that are hosted, be it a simple TAD or monthly social, a sports event, or even the gala. It's their duty to ensure that the Photos page on the website is filled with the most memorable photographs of your time here at Cover.

Are you interested in joining a committee? Don't hesitate to contact Zoe, our Commissioner of Internal Affairs!

Nice to know

On behalf of NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences, Lectorate Purposeful Entrepreneurship (, under the supervision of Senior Lecturer Tatiana Ciff, we, Jildert Nadema, Ilse Hoeksma and Falko Schouten, are conducting a research study on IT/ICT students’ view on the position of women in IT/ICT study courses and workplaces. In the literature (CBS, 2021), it is reported that only about 16% of employees in the IT/ICT industry in the Netherlands are women. Hence, we are conducting this survey to investigate IT/ICT students’ perspective on why women are less likely to choose an IT/ICT study course and pursue a career in this field.

The survey consists of 18 questions, and it takes about 5 to 10 minutes to answer them. Would you please be so kind to fill it in? The survey can be found here. Thank you!

The Top Dutch Solar Racing is a student team based in Groningen that was born out of the motivation to innovate the mobility sector in order to fight climate change. That is why every two years they create a team of highly motivated students that are interested in developing a new car powered by the sun and representing a tech hub from the North of the Netherlands on the world arena.

Founded in 2017, Top Dutch Solar Racing is a rather young organization. Their family consists of two generations of teams. They participated in Bridgestone World Solar Challenge in Australia (2019), iLumen European Solar Challenge (2020), and Moroccan Solar Challenge (2021). Every time they placed as top performers during these races.

Now it is time for the third generation of the Top Dutch Solar Racing team! That is why they are looking for students with different educational backgrounds that would be interested in their project and ready to take up the challenge of building the solar car throughout the next year.

Our new team needs:

  • Mechanical engineers
  • Electrical engineers
  • Software engineers
  • Strategists
  • Travel logistics
  • Acquisition
  • Communication
  • Management

This project is an opportunity for students to advance their skills and go beyond, get used to the working environment, and visit the country where the next Solar Challenge will take place. Besides that it is a great chance for personal growth and boosting your CV. Interest? Please send an email here!

For dutch students only!
