As the study association for the bachelor and master Electrical Engineering, master Embedded Systems (with Inter-Actief) and master Systems and Control (with Abacus), Scintilla looks after the interests of her members. Naturally, education is the most important factor in the association’s objectives. On this page, you can find an overview of the activities Scintilla employs to safeguard educational quality.
Safeguarding educational quality
It is key that members can focus on studying. Scintilla invests effort in implementing the proper conditions for students to study and closely monitors whether previously made arrangements are being complied with. The commissioner of educational affairs of the board works together with the committee for the educational quality of Scintilla, STUDI (former StOEL), and the educational bodies of the University to achieve these goals.
Furthermore, it is important that students have the possibility to voice their complaints and/or suggest improvements. To this end, the association organizes multiple forms of educational evaluation. If you have a suggestion or questions that you’d like to see answered outside of these evaluations, please contact the Commissioner of Educational affairs or STUDI:

Expanding practical and theoretical knowledge
It has always been Scintilla’s belief that it is of vital importance to master the skills required to become a successful Electrical Engineer. The association organizes several courses to teach some of these skills when needed and regularly evaluates how her members can be offered more courses that contribute to their sustainable future. For the current offering of courses, please refer to the activity page.
On the theoretical side of things, Scintilla arranges several lunch lectures on a variety of subjects and organizes symposia that bring together students and enterprises. In addition, members are provided with access to relevant study books and a platform of knowledge, consisting of an exam database and a network of members and alumni.
Scintilla maintains an exam database. We attempt to keep it as up-to-date as possible, but need your help! Do you have an exam? Hand it over to the board and earn an entry for the exam lottery at SCALA’s Summer BBQ!
Scintilla helps with the selling of the correct study books for the Electrical Engineering bachelor, minors, pre-master and master.
