Cover is the study association for Artificial Intelligence and Computing Science offering three types of activities:

  • Social

    We organise weekly borrels, monthly socials and tons of other activities. If you are interested in these topics and also want to have a genuinely good time, drop by the Cover room in the Bernoulliborg on Zernike campus (0041a), because that's where we live. We are open on weekdays from 11:00 to 17:00.

  • Study

    We organise study support lectures about our degree programs. You can join workshops that either dig deeper into materials, or offer some fresh knowledge. You can also find help using our tutoring system!

  • Career

    We also offer career oriented events. Regularly, we have companies over to hold talks about certain career paths. You will find this interesting if you want to talk to students who finished their studies and now work at companies or if you are interested in what companies are up to in general.

Abacus puzzle booklet!

By: Board on April 25, 2024 15:48

Hello everyone!

Our sister association Abacus, the mathematics study association of the University of Twente, is working on a puzzle book for all mathematics and computer science associations in the Netherlands and needs your help!

Would you like to contribute and help create puzzles? Then this is your chance! A sample of the last edition can be found here:  https://issuu.com/ideaal.aba...eaal_2021-07-06_puzzelboekje.

As a small side note, to avoid getting a puzzle booklet filled with only sudokus, Abacus has asked you to not make more than two of the same "type of puzzle"

You have until 6 May to make one or more puzzles and send them to secretary@svcover.nl, and we will make sure they end up at the right place! When the puzzle booklet is finished, you too can enjoy your own puzzle and those of many others!

Consider the Science Communication & Education Master!

By: Board on November 23, 2023 19:11

Hey you! Are you busy looking for a master's already? If you think a research master is not for you, consider a master in science communication/education! Within this master, you can follow one of our two tracks. In the Communication track, you will follow courses on science journalism, make a podcast, science videos, and many more. For an impression of the assignments, also check our website. This track is taught in English. In the Education track, you will learn everything you need to become a secondary school teacher, through courses and internships. As you will be working in Dutch high schools, you need to be fluent in Dutch.

Interested and wanting to know more? Contact student.pb.ecmaster@rug.nl if you have questions, or want to get a better impression of the master!
