News

Yesterday, the monthly University Council (UR) meeting has taken place.

We discussed several documents including the analysis of academic process during the Bachelor College Cohorts 2008-2015, which shows an upward trend in the study process, partly through the introduction of the Binding Study Advice (BSA). We are glad to see that the increase of the BSA limit from 40 EC to 45 EC did not have a significant impact on the percentage of failures.
Within the TU/e, a Research Support Network is established which will assist faculties, especially academic staff, in the development of research proposals in order to find good alignment with the (research funding) market.
The Institutional Plan 2017-2020 mainly describes the Strategic Plan of the TU/e. The Board of Executives prefers to act with an eye on the student growth, excellent education, international impact, partnerships, people and finances.
Studentlife! describes the vision about the support of student organizations affiliated with the TU/e, which includes no big changes yet.
Furthermore, the updated guidelines regarding bi-certification for both Bachelor College and Graduate School were discussed, as well as the topic list of the so called ‘’Model OER’, which is of great importance for all students. The topics of the defined topic list will carefully be discussed in relevant gremia, to monitor possible changes accurately.

During this exam period (January 16th - February 3rd), the Metaforum Library is only accessible for TU/e students and employees upon showing their campus card. Groep-één will be evaluating the pilot experiment in collaboration with the TU/e.

Non-TU/e visitors can fill in a quick poll (ca. 1 minute) to give their opinion on the pilot and the use of the Metaforum Library: www.groep-een.com/nontue

TU/e students will be asked to fill in a poll after the pilot.

The elections are not over yet, but Groep-één would already very much like to thank all students who have put their trust in us. We feel these elections are the start of another great year for Groep-één in the University Council. Tomorrow, the election results will come in and we will let you know how we all did.

We would also like to take this tear-jerking opportunity to thank EVERYONE that has helped us during the preparations and the election days: a big thanks to our list of candidates for putting themselves out there for the students next year, our Campaign Committee for all their organisational work, our board and last-years fraction for their guidance and support and of course ALL volunteers and friends of Groep-één for their relentless efforts to get Groep-één's message across to all students at the TU/e. You guys rock and truly make the TU/e great again.
And of course a sincere thank you to our friends over at Eindhovense Studentenraad: you guys keep us sharp when we need it the most.
