Events

Three events will be organized by the Honors academy. Purpose of the events are community building, learn from your fellow Honors students.

Inspiration workshops Personal Development

During the period in which you are working on your PDP, the Honors Academy organizes an evening with different workshops to help you refine the PDP. This evening will consists of two rounds of workshops on themes that are frequently incorporated in PDP’s of Honors students (e.g. time management, pitching). Based on your provisional PDP and on your interest, you can choose two themes you want to focus on. You will need to sign up for the workshops, information on which will be made available via CANVAS. Please note that the number of places in the different workshops is limited, so make sure that you apply in time. After two rounds of workshops, there will be an opportunity to catch-up with your fellow Honors students in a more informal setting.

Interim project presentations

Halfway through your Honors bachelor year, the Honors Academy organizes interim project presentations. You and your team are asked to give a short presentation (max 10 minutes) to your peer Honors students from another track in parallel sessions. The goal of this presentation is to make students from other tracks understand the essence of your project, to ask others for input for their own project, and from an audience perspective to give input to somebody else’s project.

The following topics should be part of the group presentation:
- What is the goal of your project?
- What challenge does your project address or what problem is your project going to solve?
- What will be the final project deliverable(s)?
- What have you achieved so far and in which project phase are you now?

End of Year Symposium

At the end of your Honors bachelor year, the Honors Academy organizes the End of Year Symposium. This symposium is also a great opportunity to present your project to your peers, family and friends. All Honors students will be invited to this symposium and you will have the opportunity to pitch your project to a jury consisting of staff members of internationally renowned companies and the Dean of the Honors Academy. After these pitches you will have the opportunity to present your work at a poster and demonstrator session, followed by an award ceremony for the best Honors Academy project.
