Lecture: AdVinci & Environment Law

On 26 September at 15:00, two AdVincie employees (of which one former student of environmental Science!) will give a lecture on the work they do (as consultancy on environment and Sustainability) and on the environmental law. This new law enters into force in 2021 and means many changes for the spatial domain. This puts the government and the companies that are facing a major challenge.

Because in our training we get little to no lesson about the environmental law, but we will work with this in our later Work field, this is a very suitable opportunity to learn more about the environment law!

The lecture takes about an hour and then there is time to ask questions. It is in Vb209 at school. So come and visit! The lecture is free for members of Hallieu, if you are not a member then the lecture will cost €1.50.

The best choices for after your study

You are in the last year of your study and the total focus is on your thesis. More than logical as well, because this is about the most difficult and time consuming thing you have done throughout your study period. However, it is very useful to see what you are going to do after your studies. There are often two types of people to be distinguished in this process. The one would like to study because he or she is not yet in a full-time job or would like to gather more knowledge. The other is extremely happy that all these years are studying and finally getting to work. Or if you don't want to think of both at the moment, you can escape. You can find what possible options after your study in this article.

Excursion: Antea Group

Antea Group

There has been a demand for more excursions with the members of Hallieu for many years. Previously, we have had company visits with other study associations. Now we have organized our own excursion. In collaboration with the Antea Group, a consulting firm, Hallieu organizes an excursion to a project location where work is carried out. A gas pipeline is built under a former tramway. A lot of different activities are carried out at such a project location.

Is this something for you and your classmates? We will start with a small explanation about the process of soil research and the laying of pipes in the soil. After that we will go to the project location (transport is arranged), where we can look around and get explanations. If there is enough enthusiasm from the ecology angle, the group can be split up and students can walk along with a ecologist explaining the ecological perspective of the laying of piping.

So put your hands out of the sleeves and join us on excursion! Up to 20 students can join, so sign up quickly.

The excursion takes place on Monday 25 February. Times will be announced later.

Registration is closed.
