Bouwkunde Bedrijvendagen

Bouwkunde Bedrijvendagen is an annual recurring event organized by Built Environment students of the University of Technology in Eindhoven. During this event, both bachelor and master students can directly and informally acquaint themselves with companies in the building sector.

The Bouwkunde Bedrijvendagen will kick off with the Opening Lecture. Each year we invite an interesting speaker, who is active in the built environment, to give a lecture about his/her projects. We look for interesting and recent projects that spark the interest.

During the Walking Dinner a small group of students and a company representative will enjoy one of the three courses. Throughout the evening, between the courses, students will change tables in order to get to know the different companies in the tracks. Students have the opportunity to be invited for the 1 on 1 interviews by the representative.

Lunch Lectures

In the 2018 edition of the Bouwkunde Bedrijvendagen, we added two lunch lectures.

The first lunch lecture was given by EGM Architects about Design Tools for the Future.   

Designing for the future has always been an important and interesting topic that we get conscious about during our studies. Besides doing projects as a great architecture firm they also put a large emphasis on designing tools to improve the usage of buildings. The tools help creating scenario’s that will provide a better understanding of the usage of buildings. An example of one of their new tools is ‘Indoor analytics’. How these design tools exactly work and how this will lead to actual scenario’s that will improve the design of buildings will be discussed extensively during this lecture.

Inbo informed us about the soon to be built Tower K in Eindhoven during the second lunch lecture.

Inbo is an architecture firm which cooperated with the famous Italian architect Stefano Boeri in the design of the Tower K. Together they made a unique design resulting in the form of a vertical forest which is believed to give the skyline of Eindhoven a real green boost.

Stay tuned for the announcements of the 2019 events!
