Currently, you are on the website of Cover! We are the study association for Artificial Intelligence and Computing Science. 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.
Cover can offer you three types of activities:
- First, the social aspect is an important part of Cover. We organise weekly borrels, monthly socials and tons of other activities.
- Second, 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!
- Third, 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.
For a more detailed overview of our upcoming events, have a look to your left!
We have some great news that we'd like to share with you! Although it took us some time to find them, we are very happy to announce that we have found our new Candidate Board! The Candidate Board is constituted as follows:
Leonidas Zotos: Chairman & Secretary
Rico Huttema: Treasurer & Commissioner of External Affairs II
Amber Chen: Commissioner of Internal Affairs and Commissioner of External Affairs I
Gonçalo Hora Carvalho: Commissioner of Educational Affairs
We think that they'll do a great job next year and can't wait for them to get started!
As of now, the applications for board XXIX are open! A board year at Cover is an amazing experience where you develop yourself in many ways whilst having a great time. As there are aspects of a board year that are hard to describe on paper we are available to ‘grab a coffee’ over Skype or answer all your questions through WhatsApp.
For more information on the procedure of applying and the functions in the board you can look at the guide for how to apply. The application deadline is April 19th at 23:59 so send your motivational letter and CV to firstname.lastname@example.org before that time!
As you might have read, the RUG is cancelling all lectures and exams until at least April 10th due to the COVID-19. Following their lead, the Cover Room will be closed from tomorrow onwards. There will be the possibility to pick up your personal belongings between 09.00 and 15.00 tomorrow. Additionally, most events will be cancelled of which the details can be found in the agenda. We will continue to monitor the situation and communicate with the RUG. If anything changes, we will keep you informed.
