The Industria board would like to wish you all the best for 2022! Hopefully, you have enjoyed the holidays and may this new year bring you many memorable events. This newsletter will update you with recent developments and will provide an overview of the upcoming activities.
We are, unfortunately, still in lockdown. However, the university would like to encourage students to study at designated study spots. Therefore, we would like to encourage you to come study at the campus to stay interconnected while keeping the current measures in mind. As The Villa is still closed and to support you while studying for the upcoming exams, the Industria board will provide you with some coffee and cookies on the 2nd floor of Atlas.

Every year, the education awards for the best teachers are given out. To determine who is eligible for these prices, we need your votes and stories! The link for voting will follow soon. This year, the ceremony will take place on January 27th. So, vote for your favorite teachers to show them the student’s appreciation!
During these hard corona times, you may find yourself struggling with certain topics around well-being. If you would like to talk about it with other students and share experiences and tips with the supervision of a professional, Industria organizes small discussion sessions where this is facilitated. These sessions are small and open for everyone and it is a safe space. The next discussion session is about the fear of failure on January 17th during the lunch break. You can sign up via the website. Furthermore, student well-being is an important topic at our association and the TU/e, for more information check the TU/e website: https://educationguide.tue.nl/practical-info/wellbeing-taking-care-of-yourself-and-each-other/.

Educational Council (OC)
Every study at the TU/e has its own educational council. This council is responsible to advise the department about educational matters within that study. For example about topics as course descriptions, the OER and you will conduct small research projects.
To ensure good representation, several students are part of this council. From the upcoming semester onwards, we are looking for new student members to represent the OML and MSE master program. The meetings are always in English, so do not hesitate to apply if you are an international student.
The workload is 1 general meeting per month and some preparation time, which comes to +/- 2 hours per week. So if you are an OML or MSE student and would like to contribute to your educational program, please send a mail to email@example.com to apply or to receive further information.
The upcoming events are listed in the activity overview attached. For more information, visit our website.
Good luck with the upcoming exams, stay healthy and we hope to see you soon during our (online) activities!
