Het Perfecte Plaatje: the jury's highlights- Round 4!

By KiekCie - Committees - 20 May 2021

Het Perfecte Plaatje round four has been completed, meaning that the remaining contestants are now working on their final pieces. Before the finale deadline comes around at the 8th of May, we first get to share some highlights from probably our most challenging round thus far. The challenge this round was to make two pictures that included some form of reflection. One of them was to be a self-portrait and the other a portrait of someone else. Contrary to last round, the highlights of this round could be just one of the two pictures the participants sent in. As always note that the highlight pictures don’t have to be the best pictures that were sent in, they are pictures that stood out on one or multiple of the criteria they were judged on.

Het Perfecte Plaatje: the jury's highlights- Round 3!

By KiekCie - 19 May 2021

The third round of Kiekcie’s Het Perfecte Plaatje is completed, and this round was the most challenging so far. The challenge was to edit one landscape picture in two different ways, so it would tell two different stories. Truly a challenge for the teams to show off their editing skills. Despite the hard challenge this round once again produced some highlights that show off the talent and creativity of our Intermate peers. The highlights don’t necessarily have to be the best pictures, it could also be that they simply stand out in one of the aspects that are judged or have something extraordinary to show. So let’s see what beautiful pictures this round had to offer!

Guideline for your online BEP

By Michelle van Ardenne - Columns - 5 May 2021

Everybody has to do it, if you like it or not, the Bachelor End Project (BEP). What seems to be the biggest task of your lifetime at the start, really becomes that precious word document on your laptop which you start loving more and more when it comes to the end. At least, that is how I felt about my BEP. Especially with the coronavirus, I feel more proud than ever. For the people who do not know me, my name is Michelle van Ardenne. In January I finished my bachelor Psychology and technology after 6 months of working on my bachelor end project. The topic of my BEP was ‘The influence of ecological footprint calculators on pro-environmental intentions. I am not going to bore you with an extensive summary of my BEP, but what I think is more useful for you is to learn some tips and tricks to finish your BEP in times of the Corona crisis. Because there are some things that will differ and you can better be prepared.

By Wouter Pustjens - Columns - 31 January 2021

It is always nice to gain a better insight in where you can end up after you have graduated. Today Wouter Pustjens is telling us what he does at Pondera, a sponsor of Intermate.

He remembers the struggle of explaining that technology – by itself – is not a perfect solution, and that innovation scientists are required to embed technology in its societal context. His perfect example was NIMBYism (Not In My BackYard) in wind energy projects, which he is now also tackling at Pondera.
