KOers is the study association for students Structural Engineering and Design at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). At the moment KOers has about 300 members.
The main goal of KOers is to complement the education of students and to bring them into contact with the business community. This is achieved by organizing excursions, lectures, workshops and study trips. All the activities have a connection to both the theoretical education and engineering practice.
The education-committee of KOers keeps a close eye on the courses and projects of the mastertrack Structural Engineering and Design. Evaluation meetings are held, where students and teachers can evaluate courses and projects through discussion.
Two times a year our association releases a magazine: the KOersief. This magazine contains interesting articles on engineering practice, the work of graduate students and activities organised or visited by KOers. From 2019 onwards, also online articles will be published.
KOers organizes, besides the educational activities, also drinks, parties, and a yearly BBQ. The Concrete Canoe Race and the Batavieren Race are some of the sport activities in which KOers participates.
