week at DTU is being organized by PF (a student organization of DTU). It costs 240
DKK to participate and has to book prior to the deadline. The coordinators will
inform with all the details and will provide detail information on the program.
Once the payment
for the program is made, they will send an invoice followed with the detailed program schedule. PF society will assign a buddy (a DTU student member of the
PF society) to guide through the week and through the semester as well. The buddies
are usually assigned to a group of 10 participants. Each group will be given a
name to identify during the events participation.
Our week started
on 27th of January (Monday), followed by many fun games to get to
know each other of the participants followed by lunch time. After lunch hours,
we were welcomed by the president of the university with his inspiring welcome
speech followed by international coordinator for studies and few others.
On Tuesday, we
had attended few workshops that we had signed up for, while registering to the
event, these workshops are focused on career guidance, campus life, sports and
student associations etc. it’s a very useful and a recommended one to
participate for sure. After lunch, we attended a club fair, where all the
student clubs have presented themselves through their unique stalls and walk us
through their activities and visions. It’s a great opportunity to interact with
many at one place.
started with an amazing campus race, each group was given with same set of
riddles and clues to solve by visiting particular places inside the campus,
this is a really fun event to participate with your group and to get to know
the campus as well, this is followed by inspirational talks that aligns with
the area of interest that you had prioritized during the registration. The day
ended with a pilot project with a fun task (in our case, we were asked to make
a device to measure time of 1 min with as accurate as possible, using straws,
plastic cups, balloon and tape).
We met everyone
at Nørreport area on Thursday for DTUmazing race. The objective of the race is
to have fun and to explore the Copenhagen city while actively participating at
group tasks and quizzes at few landmarks, the ended with a party in a pub and
it was an amazing experience to for sure.
started very late with a team brunch, we had booked a kitchen to cook brunch
and everyone came together to share food at the table and later we had
participated in a Harry potter quiz. The evening was well planned with a great Gala
dinner (the food preferences were well noted during the registration to event
itself) and a small award function for the groups that had won competitions
during the week. And the night ended with a DJ party in S-Huset (student club
with a bar).
Thorough out the
week, each day has its own fun challenges that involve the group to bond and
make friends with each other and from other groups as well. The buddies are
very helpful in participation and organizing the events and the coordinators
has designed the week to make sure every participant feel included and have
recommend you to participate in introduction week.
Hope you will
have fun and great time at DTU.
