We are very happy to say that S.A. Astatine is open again! However, certain limitations apply due to the corona regulations of both the RIVM and the University of Twente, hope to see you soon, op de hoogste!
S.A. Astatine is the study association for Advanced Technology and Nanotechnology students at the University of Twente. We are an international, non-profit association that support the students (and staff) of Advanced Technology and Nanotechnology in providing a community, creating opportunities for personal development, and evaluating the curriculum. This is done by the means of a combination of both educational and extracurricular activities.
On the 3rd of September, the change-GMA took place in which the 15th board was discharged and the 16th board was finally charged. The 16th board of S.A. Astatine consists of Jan den Uijl as Chairman, Timon Smit as Secretary, Stéphan Bosman as Treasurer, and Jenny Agerbeek as commissioner of External Affairs. We will ensure that the members of S.A. Astatine will keep thriving, developing themselves and make awesome memories!!
Make sure to pass by the new Astatine rooms, the board room is now in Carré 3112 and the members room in Carré 3114. Here they will be each day, so come by to have a chat or buy something from our delicious ASS (Astatine Streep Systeem).
The SSA (Stichting Studiereis Astatine) is the independent study trip of Astatine. Next summer 25 students will visit the technical, social and scientific aspects of Singapore and Australia. The theme of the trip will be “Nano country and macro island”. The students will be participating in the organization for one total year and this organization consists of 3 parts, a course, case-work and the planning and organization of the trip itself. In this way, it is learning, earning and entertaining all together! The trip is open for all Astatine member who at least have 45 EC’s.

Filled with past Astatine activities to fill you with longing, online activities to keep you sane and articles of borderline insanity, we hope to help you survive the last bit of this weird time.
