The Eindhoven Student Symposium is an event where students and enterprises can get in contact in an interactive way. This year, the theme of the symposium is: “The Limits of Humanity” in which we will focus on three aspects, being Big Data, Food and Energy. The event will be organised for approximately 150 students in collaboration with the Dutch Technology week. It will take place on the 6th of June 2018, and will consist of 4 different parts:
- The day will start with two lectures, which will give different perspectives and insights for the theme of the Symposium.
- After the lectures, several companies will give workshops. There will be 2 rounds of 10 workshops in which approximately 15 students will be doing interactive activities with the company.
- The afternoon will end with a network drink where students can get in contact with the companies while enjoying a drink/snack.
- In the evening, there will be a recruitement diner which is exclusively for advanced students. Recruiters and students will enjoy a diner together, and after every course students and recruiters will switch tables to stimulate contact between different people.
A Business Case is an afternoon/evening in which a company and a group of high potential students will be working on a case toghether. This case is representive of what the companies activities are and its content is decided on by the company. The cases can be fictional to test the students, or it can be a problem the company currently faces for which they need new insights. This is the perfect way for students to get acquainted with the activities of the company. Besides that, the company can find out what kind of relevant skills the students have.
Business Core Eindhoven gives a company the opportunity to present itself to a group of high potential students by means of a lunch lecture. The lunch lecture consists of three parts of half an hour: a lecture before the lunch, the lunch and the final lecture. During the lunch and after the last lecture students and the company have the opportunity to get in contact with each other.
