Event: Students and companies come together at the Thesis Fair


The annual Thesis Fair will take place on Thursday 3 November. Here, students from The Graduate School of Informatics in the completion phase of their masters are paired with various organisations. This allows students to choose an interesting and suitable thesis project within a company, organisation or research group. For organisations, it is an opportunity to connect with students with specific expertise and knowledge.

This year, 37 different organisations applied. The different projects were assessed extensively in advance. Over 200 students will attend this year's Thesis Fair and around 150 delegates from the participating organisations. They range from small startups, to SMEs, large corporations and banks, to government agencies.

"I enjoyed most the volume of the great young talent, and the precise preparation for the speeddates."

During the 'Open Market' section, attendees will have good opportunities to network. This will be followed by 15-minute speed dates between companies and students. In this case both parties can discuss thesis projects, conditions and possible details.

As a company or organisation, would you like to participate in the general Fair or the specific AI Fair next year? Or, are you just curious and want to drop by on 3 November? Then send an email to thesisfair-IvI@uva.nl. More information about the event can be found on the Thesis fairs site.
