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 us. 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!
The sign-ups for the SNiC symposium ResilIT are opened! SNiC is a congress organisation that organizes the yearly national student conference on IT. The event will be in Amersfoort, however they have arranged for busses to drive us to the event and back to Groningen. You can sign up here for just 7,50 euro! For more information, you can visit their website!
Last Wednesday, we released the yearbook 'This was a bad idea' of 2018 - 2019. It features loads of editorials, such as a prize-puzzle, a quiz, and the year review. As always, there are also pieces by our (previous) boards and committees, and our fellow brother and sister associations.
Pick up your yearbook and reminisce about the past year, find out which burger place is a good idea, get to know some bad films, and seize the opportunity to learn from this neat collection of bad ideas!
Ever thought about what you may be doing after your studies? Do you want to know what it is like to apply knowledge in practice? On the 8th of May, Cover will be having the second edition of its Career Day in Het Kasteel. On this day, six of our sponsors will be treating us with lectures, workshops and cases! And on top of that, we will enjoy free coffee and tea, lunch and dinner with them.
The day will start at 9:30 with the attendees signing in and picking up their nametags. At 10:00, we open with a keynote from our main sponsor, Belsimpel. After this, we will have a lecture by Nedap, followed by lunch. After lunch, we have a round of cases/workshops, then a round of soft-skill workshops while dinner is set up. After enjoying that, the bar will open and we will have drinks and networking together with all our sponsors.
While our friends are away on the ExCee trip, we can still get together and have a lovely time playing board games. Are you again bored of not playing enough board games? Abort your plans on this Thursday evening. All aboard the Board board game night. We might have gone a bit overboard with this message, again, but bored Board does board board board.
If you are up for a calm but fun evening, this is the right event for you. We will be in Het Heerenhuis again! Don’t shy away from bringing your own games too.
Before the Board Game Night, we will be offering pizzas to eat during the TAD so you don't need to rush home for dinner. If you want to have a pizza during the TAD please feel out the form below (cost starting at €5). Signups for pizza will be open until 16:00 on Thursday.
