Industria is the association for students of the faculty of Industrial Engineering in Eindhoven, while Interactie is an association that belongs to Industria for more internationally orientated activities. Members of Interactie can travel to Europe and meet up with other students by using the wide network of ESTIEM. Activities organized by Interactie are usually travel related. Activities organized by Industria are usually targeted to Industrial Engineering students in Eindhoven, while those organized by Interactie are more targeted internationally.
Interactie is the (Dutch) study association for international activities for Industrial Engineering and Management in Eindhoven. Interactie is a part of study association Industria. ESTIEM is a Europe-wide organization with a wide network that Interactie uses to travel through Europe and meet up with other students. ESTIEM has its own yearly board, which consist of six European students from all over Europe. When Interactie organizes an event, it is specifically done to attract ESTIEMers from other European cities.
ESTIEM represents more than 60.000 students from all over Europe. It has 79 member associations, called Local Groups, in 31 different countries. Its goal is to build up and strengthen the relationships between IEM students in Europe. IEM stands for Industrial Engineering and Managements Students. Until this date, ESTIEM is the only Europe-wide organization for IEM students.
All year round, multinational project teams are organising European activities such as student exchanges, case competitions, lectures, trainings and workshops. This makes ESTIEM a unique network that brings together people with different cultural backgrounds and experiences.
More information can be found here.
ESTIEM has different kinds of events throughout the whole year. When you are a member, you can “apply” for these events on www.estiem.org. Of course, you can also try to go on a trip with someone you know and apply together. These events are all over Europe and a lot of fun. All these events have certain themes. For example, an Europe3D event is an event where people get to know the political, economical and cultural aspects of the country they’re visiting. Be careful you won’t get addicted on travelling after your first trip!
You can also get active in one of the Projects, Committees or Initiatives within ESTIEM. If you’d like to work in a multinational team and get active on a higher level, go to our Get Involved page.
After signing up for Interactie, you will receive an e-mail through which you can access the ESTIEM portal and start applying for ESTIEM events. The board is always available to help you with this. All events in Europe are organised by people that we know, so you don’t have to worry about being fooled or ending up abroad without help!
Travelling with ESTIEM is really cheap. The participation fee for approximately 5 days of food, accommodation and activities is often around 70-90 euros. This doesn’t cover transportation, and extra costs you make there, like having a drink. Another pro is that Interactie has a reimbursement policy for these participation fees (ask for general conditions). This means that a part of your participation fee can be reimbursed and you only have to pay for your transportation.
Committees consist of a few members, who together organize an event, exchange or other things for the local group, ESTIEM members, or both. Being in a committee gives you the opportunity to develop yourself, organize something fun and/or useful for others, and most importantly to have a great time. On this page you can find the different committees that Interactie offers. If you’d like to know more, just contact one of the board members, they’re always open to answer any question you might have. You might also want to take a look at our Get Involved page.
If you’re uncertain about something, you can always send an e-mail to the board or just walk up to any member and ask. We’re always up for answering your questions. Contact information of the board can be found here.
