[ESTIEM] LII. Council Meeting Porto

From 12th to 18th April four members of our Local Group participated at the LII. Council Meeting Porto to represent Berlin. During this event with around 250 participants from all over Europe we worked on the future of ESTIEM. The delegates decided about the new board, project leaders and about the admittance of new local groups. In working group and trainings we had the chance to develop ourselves and ESTIEM.

After all the hard work we spent the evenings on experiencing Porto and meeting all the ESTIEMers. “Work hard, play hard” was present during the whole week.

Meeting so many diverse students united by the ESTIEM spirit was a unique experience and it is always a pleasure for us – AG WiIng Berlin – to be a part of this network.

A special thanks goes to LG Porto for organizing this event!

[ESTIEM] Europe3D in Baku, Azerbaijan

Last week Linda Riedinger and Tobias Krakau took place in the ESTIEM event Europe3D Azerbaijan, which was the first central ESTIEM event of LG Baku. They got to know Azerbaijan from three different dimensions: Politic, Economy and Culture. In the political session they talked to a Deputy of Parliament of the Republic of Azerbaijan and Chairman of Standing Committee of Youth and Sport. He explained the Azerbaijani political system and answered a lot of questions. After this session an active debate started from which everyone could learn a bit. The economic part was divided in two. There was an economic session with a former professor, now working at Central Bank of Azerbaijan and because the Azerbaijan economy is based on oil and gas, they visited the company SOCAR (State Oil Company of Azerbaijan Republic), which is the biggest fossil fuel company in Azerbaijan and one of the largest in the whole world. In the cultural dimension they had a cultural awareness training, where they improved their interaction with other cultures and countries. They also took part in “Nowruz” the Persian New Year, learned a lot about history, visited the city, cooked and danced in an Azerbaijani way and had a small language course.

For most of us it was one of the first contact with Azerbaijan and learned a lot. And not only from the session. Being part of a group of 25 people from 17 different countries you learn also about 17 other countries, yours included, and a lot about yourself and general interaction between people. Thank you a lot LG Baku, it was an amazing event, an experience you don’t want to miss in your life! #feelfreeto3DAzerbaijan

[ESTIEM] IT School Xanthi

From 22nd to 29th March Anika representing the IT department of our local group visited Xanthi to participate at the ESTIEM IT School about App Development on Android systems. In the ten lessons we learned a lot about programming an app beginning with the basics like designing different buttons to press moving then on to create a more complex app with sounds, notifications and more than only one activity.
After the lessons we had a lot of time to explore Xanthi with its beautiful old town and nature. Events like karaoke, bowling or the hacking game ensured a lot of fun in the evening.
The week was topped off with a speech given by the ceo of Regate S.A. about “How to build the next big” before we all travelled home with the pride having our own – very simple – app on our smartphone.
The ESTIEM LG Xanthi did a great job and now it’s time for:
Taking ESTIEM to a… smarter level!
