Mathematical Career Orientation Day
Due to the coronavirus, the one-on-one conversations will be set-up online. The presentations will be live-streamed, so feel free to watch them!
The Mathematical Career Orientation Day is aimed at students who are currently studying Applied Mathematics and are eager to find out what they can do after finishing their studies. During the event, you will get the opportunity to have one-on-one talks with mathematicians currently working at the participating companies. This can be just an orientating conversation, but the interview may also directly lead to a job, internship or graduation project!
Throughout the day, there will also be talks about pursuing a career in education or academia. The day will end with a keynote speech by an alumnus of Applied Mathematics. It is also possible to sign up for these talks in the registration form.
