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 many committees, each of which has its own activities. The greatest advantage of participating in a committee is to get to know other KOers members, in addition to organizing activities. Besides that, it can be a nice addition to your resume and a way to learn new skills.

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

Multiple-Day Excursion Committee
Every year, an excursion is organized to a destination within or near Europe. Two years ago, the destination was Madrid. In previous years, we have visited Bucharest, Vienna, Copenhagen, and Munich. This year the MDE committee organized a trip to Stuttgart, which unfortunately could not take place.

KOers International Study Trip Committee
In the second part of the academic year, a trip is organized by the KOers international study trip committee. The goal of this trip is to get in touch with other cultures, architecture history, and noteworthy structures. The last successful instance was in 2019 when a trip to Toronto and Montréal was organized.

Concrete Canoe Race Committee

The Concrete canoe race is a yearly event where students of different universities and colleges race each other in self-made concrete canoes. Some of the prizes that can be won are the heaviest canoe, the most innovative canoe, and the fastest times for several distances. The committee builds canoes and makes the teams. The innovative canoe is based on a different concept every year.
