Program day by day

On Monday 28 August, new TU/e students can finalize their enrollment and participate in an activity organized by interational student association Cosmos. 

On Tuesday 29 August is the first day of the challenge. You and your team can work on the challenge all day. During the day, you can take time to participate in team-building workshops or join the information event at your department.

On Wednesday 30 August, you can spend the morning and afternoon working on the challenge or attending the department program. From mid-afternoon onward, you can watch inspiring speakers while the jury examines your submissions. Some of the best teams will get the opportunity to present their solutions to the jury and the participants. During the networking drinks and barbecue, the winners will be announced. That is also the moment to meet TU/e lecturers and industry professionals in a casual setting.

On Thursday 31 August, it is time for something completely different: discovering student life. During the day, you will get to know Eindhoven’s cultural associations, sports associations and the Student Sports Center. Afterwards, you are invited to a fun evening activity.
