During the past nine weeks, the first-year Advanced Technology students have been working on building a cooling system that cools 0.33L of water as much as possible in half an hours. They had to make a design using the Stirling cycle and make a mathematical model to predict how well their system would work.
On the 25th of January, a competition was held to see which cooling system worked best. The Advanced Technology groups performed very well, but an Applied Physics group won in the end.
On the 19th of December, the Bachelor Assignment Speed Dating took place. 18 research groups and Lithium Werks were present to give information to students about the possibilities of doing an assignment with them. The turn up was good and new contacts were made!
To get into the Christmas spirit the IMCo organised a trip to the Christmas market in Munster this weekend. The members enjoyed themselves a lot with the verious stands, beautiful archetecture, and delicious food and drinks!
