Chairman: Judith van Velden

Hello, my name is Judith and currently I am a third year student in my bachelor Civil Engineering.Last year I did a parttime board year at UniPartners Twente, where I learned a lot about project management. This year I wanted to put those skills to the test as the Chairwoman of the Symposium. As the chairwoman, it is my task to keep track of everyone’s progress and ensuring that we will organize an amazing Symposium. Next to this, I am a member of DRV Euros, and every Wednesday evening you can find me at my sorority, Ventolera. I am looking forward to see how our choices will change and innovate the Symposium. See you on february 6th!

Hey everyone! My name is Yarno and I am the Secretary of the Symposium Committee 2024, which means that I’ll be in charge of running this website and keeping up the mailbox. Currently, I’m a second year Civil Engineering student at the University of Twente. The Symposium Committee is not the first committee I’m doing for the study association ConcepT, since I previously did the AkCie committee, and currently I am planning a trip abroad with the BuLa committee. Besides studying, I love doing track and field, specifically sprint and long jump, so you can find me six times a week at the track. With the committee we worked really hard to set up an enjoyable program with some new features and creative content. I am looking forward to an inspiring and unforgettable day and I hope to see you all the 6th of February at the 31st Symposium.
