Over de Vereniging
Technologisch Gezelschap (TG) is the study association for all chemical technological programmes at Delft University of Technology. This includes the bachelor programme Molecular Science & Technology and the master programme Chemical Engineering. At this moment TG has around 700 members. The name Technologisch Gezelschap Can loosely be translated to Technological society.
Since 1890 TG represents and looks after student interests and is one of the oldest study associations of The Netherlands. During her 125th year existence TG has organised a great variety of activities. The association has many old traditions and her own unique character but always strives to be innovative.
To accomplish her goals, each years TG organises many different activities, from excursions to lectures, symposia and a foreign excursion tour. In collaboration with four other study associations in Delft, TG also organises DDB the Delft company days, the largest technical carreer fair in The Netherlands, Belgium and Luxemburg.
The content of all the activities is not necesserely bound to technical or scientific topic. There is also space for society related topics.
Another important task of TG is watching over the quality of education. The Chemical Engineering programme is of the most highly rated programmes in the world and we strive to continuusly maintain and improve the programmes. Many committes led by our commissioner of education strive to evaluate courses and make sure the feedback reaches the propper responsible person. For questions, remarks or a chat you can always visit our board office. You are our eyes and ears.
Being a member of TG gives you many advantages. As TG member you can participate in all our activities for just a few euros. You get our quarter yearly magazine and our yearbook for free. Yearly TG also organises many 'fun' activities and each thursday there is an open bar called 'ECAST' where you can grab a drink with your study mates.
For many people TG is overall also a social platform for the Delft Chemical Technologist Each year around 200 new bachelor students and 80 new master students join our cumminity. Of all these members around 90 enthusiastic members fill all our committees. On this page you can see what all these people do for the association.
All the work provided by the work and all committee members is on a voluntary basis, this makes all the activities cheap and accessible.
For first year students a TG membership costs 10 euro, which gives you right for a membership for the entire span of your study time in Delft. For masterstudents the membership is only 2 euros a year. If you are an internation student, the international office pays for your subscription.
For more information you can drop by and have a good coffee and chat in our board room in the former reading room of the old library in the ChemE building.
