Challenge yourself during our Master Day!

The Eurekaweek is a great way to get to know the city, student life and the university in a fun and informal way. During the week, you will discover everything Erasmus University Rotterdam has to offer to their students. This means that the week is not only great for Bachelor students, but it is also very valuable to Pre-Master and Master students. In order to provide these students with a little extra, the Eurekaweek Board organises a Master Day. The Master Day will take place on Wednesday August 21st. During this day, you will learn about the careers and professional development of the speakers from the Plenary Opening. Moreover, you will actively acquire knowledge during the two workshop rounds. During the workshops, you can gain consultancy experience, learn about leadership and make your LinkedIn profile even better. The Master Day will take place in the Theil building on Campus Woudestein.

JOVD – Politieke Stromingen

Een alombekende term voor ons politieke bestel is 'Nederland coalitieland',aangezien diverse partijen uit verschillende politieke stromingen telkens worden verplicht tot samenwerking in een coalitie, leidend tot compromissen. Een recent voorbeeld was de samenwerking tussen de VVD en de PvdA, gezamenlijk goed voor 79 zetels.

 

Gezien het gemak waarmee twee partijen van tegengestelde stromingen tot een coalitie kwamen, moet je je afvragen of de ideologische verschillen tussen beide wel zo groot is. Wat zijn überhaupt de uitgangspunten van onze politieke stromingen? En waar komen deze stromingen oorspronkelijk vandaan? Tijdens deze workshop krijg jij antwoord op al deze vragen!

Calco – Workshop Security/Hacken

Tegenwoordig is bijna wekelijks in de krant te lezen hoe grote organisaties hun informatieveiligheid niet op orde hebben. Is het echt zo moeilijk om je te weren tegen hackers? En is het dan zo gemakkelijk om iemand te hacken? Helaas is het antwoord op beide vragen vaak ‘ja’. Gelukkig geldt ook hier het aloude cliché: begin bij jezelf. Wat is de beste manier om je te wapenen? Door in ieder geval te weten hoe je gehackt kunt worden! In deze workshop leer je hoe hackers te werk gaan. Zo leer je onder anderen hoe je phishing mails stuurt en inbreekt op een WiFi-netwerk. Je leert begrijpen hoe een hacker te werk gaat en waar zich kwetsbaarheden voordoen. Het uiteindelijke doel is leren hoe je hacks kunt vermijden en bij je (toekomstige) werkgever kwetsbaarheden kunt spotten.
