Students who are actively involved in EESTEC, will broaden their horizons by working on multiple projects with other students who share the same passion and motivation for self development. They have the chance to develop their ideas, challenge themselves and improve their skills. Last but not least, they will have the chance to travel abroad and meet with European students and explore interesting cities. EESTEC will definitely be the best “break” from your studies. :)
I believe that EESTEC is complementary to the official education provided by the university. You get to learn a lot of things from organising an event to managing teams to achieve a goal. Additionally, you share your experiences with other like minded people, so in the end you make some good friends. It offers a great chance to learn and experience things in a European level in such a young age.
I was involved for several years in the activities organised by EESTEC, but I believe that the most significant position within LC Athens for me was that of a trainer. That meant that along with other EESTEC trainers, we were organising soft skills trainings in a variety of topics, like Leadership skills, team management, creative thinking etc.
As a member of LC Athens, I was the Contact Person of our local Board during 2012-2013. My duties were mostly the communication and information of students about our workshops and local events. I was also responsible for the communication with the International Board in order to provide reports on our Local Committee. During my mandate, I also participated actively on all our local board projects, such as Java courses, Android Workshops, Master Degrees day, etc. Last but not least I was the Head Organizer of LC Athens’ 7-day workshop on e-governance and e-voting systems, where I had the chance to lead and supervise the work an organizing team consisted of FR, PR, Logistics and Academics Responsible.
I was attracted to EESTEC LC Athens as it is a european organization, that has both academic and social activity. I was really intrigued by the academic workshops, the local projects which focused on engineering subjects, the trainings and also by the opportunity to meet and work with students from all over Europe.
