Committees

KOers has several committees, like the Concrete Canoe Race, the KOersief, International Study Trip and the Multiple Day Excursion committees. Every Bachelor and Master student is welcome to join a committee. 

Committees

KOers has a lot of committees. Every committee has its own activities. The best about taking place in a committee is getting to know other KOers-members and organizing activities. Besides that, it can also be a nice addition to your resume and a way to learn new skills.

Some committees are complementing education, others are active within the field of Structural Design. Think about building the concrete canoes or organizing the study trip. The drink and party committee is responsible for the drinks.

Concrete-canoe-race Committee

The Concrete-canoe-race is a yearly event where students of different universities and colleges race against each other in (homemade) concrete canoes. There are multiple prices to win. Examples are prices for the heaviest canoe, the most innovative canoe and there are also races over several distances. Besides enlarging the current fleet, the committee takes care of making the teams. Special care is put into the innovative-canoe.

Activity Committee

The activity committee, a new committee for KOers. As this year a couple of new big activities will take place we looked for some assistance in the organization of these events. To start with the BouwQ Pubquiz. A lot of hands were needed at a lot of different places at the same time. Secondly the ABT Design Challenge, a day filled with a variety of activities. And finally the BouwQ competition. Still unknown what the day exactly will bring but we're glad we have the activity committee to help us.
