Extra Information

From the end of July till the beginning of August, we will travel for two weeks to Texas (Houston, Dallas, Austin) and San Francisco (Bay Area, Silicon Valley) with 23 members of the Electrotechnische Vereeniging. The goal of the study tour is to visit several major high-tech companies, research institutes, and technical universities to show the participants the ‘spectrum’ of current possibilities, and challenges in the field of electrical engineering. In addition to this, there will also be cultural and tourist activities, in which the participants have a say too!

Some logistic information about the trip:

- We will depart after the bachelor resits, and return before the EOW starts, specifically: from the 29th of July till the 12th of August 2024.
