Housing Lunch Meeting – Wednesday 20th May 2015, 12:45 - 13:30 – Ravelijn 1501

Are you looking for a nice house to live in Enschede? Are you interested in the procedures you need to follow to rent a house? And do you know about the Dutch Social Housing system (sociale huurwoningen), which provides cheaper rental houses than the private brokers through governmental oversight and regulations? We invited Mr. Lucas Frans from the social housing corporation Domijn to give us an overview of the Dutch Social Housing system. The presentation will include information about the procedures needed to apply for a house, the expenses involved and house availability in Enschede.

Lunch will be provided.

We are looking forward to seeing you there! Register now!


Date: Wednesday 20th May 2015

Time: 12:45 – 13:30

Venue: Ravelijn 1501


Registration/cancellation deadline: Monday 18th April 2015

Improvisation Workshop – Wednesday 27th May 2015, 20:00 onwards –  UT Campus

Are you ready to unleash your imagination, confidence, and spontaneity through fun improvisation games? Discover how improvisation can feel natural and effortless. We invite you to come join this workshop and amaze yourself!

Improvisation is a form of theatre in which no script is used. Instead, the performers create the dialog and action on the spot. Improvisation uses audience suggestions to shape the action that unfolds on stage. Unlike conventional scripted theatre, there is an element of spontaneity and unpredictability that makes improv a unique and exciting experience.

Sign up for this improvisation workshop. No prior experience necessary.

Time: 20:00 onwards

Venue: UT Campus (exact location to be announced)

National Instruments Workshop – Wednesday 3rd June 2015, 13:00 - 16:00 –  UT Campus

On Wednesday 3rd June, National Instruments is coming to UT to give a hands-on-training about one of its most useful tools which allows you to build, amongst many other things, complex (or not) test-setups for your lab activities!

During this workshop, you will learn in an informal and challenging way how to design Real Time Systems using NI MyRio. This will be a beginners training so, you will be challenged through some practical, basic and insightful exercises that will improve your skills using LabView software. And, since this is a real-time platform, you will have immediate feedback of what you are simulating.

For this workshop, only your presence is required, all the equipment will be provided to you! NI will bring computers and MyRIO boards and IEEE Benelux YP will sponsor your energy supplies, during the event. Afterwards, there will be some drinks on us!

You can find additional information in the attached PDF. If you are interested, you can register until Wednesday 20th May. However, be quick because it is seat-limited!
