As Cosmos we aim to provide a welcoming and friendly environment for the international students at the TU/e. We are made up of student- and staff volunteers that want to help the ever-growing community at our university. In addition, we do the following main things:
- We strongly promote mutual integration of Dutch and international students in Eindhoven by celebrating culture on the TU/e campus.
- We try to create a home-like environment in the Common Room, where (international) students can come to relax and socialize.
- We are also responsible for organizing the introduction day(s) for the new international students at the TU/e.
- We provide a voice for international students within the TU/e community on all issues related to student life on campus.
COSMOS has over 500 members from over 80 different nationalities. The members of Cosmos are the heart of the association, and their work and enthusiasm keeps the association running. Becoming a member is free, and has many benefits. If you are a TU/e student or staff member, you can sign-up to become a member here.
Committees are groups of Cosmos members that help Cosmos with a specific goal. Cosmos has a lot of committees that help out manage our room, website and activities. More information about our committees can be found on the committees page.
