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!

Do you enjoy doing research? Doing experiments and testing hypothesises? DataDump is the committee for you. Every year DataDump sets out to research a particular question that we would all like to know the answer to and create a poster from their findings. Last year they set out to find out if the consumption of alcohol had an effect on people’s programming skills. Are you curious what they found? You can find the poster with the results in the Cover Room. If you would like to be part of this year’s ground breaking research, join DataDump now!

Do you want to learn how to make and maintain a website and other digital infrastructure? AC/DCee is the committee for you. Whether you already know a lot about web development or want to learn about it, this committee is interesting for everyone. Do you want the tasks of fixing bugs, redesigning some of the webpage, or undertaking a project to further Cover's digital infrastructure, you can do it all in AC/DCee!

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

Nice to know

Develop an app for the UG Lustrum

For the Lustrum of the University of Groningen in May 2024 the organising team would like to develop a simple yet functional application. They believe this would be a great opportunity to use the talent that we have within the student population of the UG to develop the app. The university saves money on development costs while also giving students with talent a podium. Afterall, having developed an app for the university would be a great thing to put on the CV. As the app is very basic it should not take too much time, it is a paid assignment though. An idea of some of the things that they would like to put in the app is:

  • The program (no search functionality needed).

  • A map with aspects of the program, including companies where you can get something for free (possibly integration with a map that already exists on the RUG site).

You can indicate your interest in this form.
