This year it is 15 years ago that the first students graduated from the master programme Geo-Information Science (MGI) at Wageningen University.
To celebrate this milestone we would like to invite all MGI alumni (now over 350), and current MGI students and staff for a whole day celebration program in Wageningen.
This event is planned on Friday December 14, 2018 in Wageningen starting from 10:00 till 19:00. The venue will be the Orion building on the Wageningen Campus.
Registration for this event is for free.
You can register here.
The program of the day will allow for plenty of time to meet with old friends but also to meet the current MGI students and staff of the chair groups involved in the MGI program.
In the morning (10:00 – 12:30), a plenary session will be organized on the theme ‘The future of Geo: how do we educate the next generation’. Several speakers will present their view on the Geo-future and the required skills and competences. We will present some historic MGI facts and figures in an interactive session and in the follow-up forum discussion we also would like to hear you view on the competences of the future MGI graduates.
During the offered lunch (12:30-14:00), several activities will be shown to update you on current MGI student projects, geo-technology and gadgets, and to make group photo’s in the alternative photo booth.
In the first half of the afternoon (14:00-16:30), you can make a choice of several activities: a campus tour, back to the classroom, discussion panels and stimulate your creativity.
During the second half of the afternoon (16:30-19:00), we invite you for drinks in the Spot, the student cafe in the Orion building. And we already can disclose that we have been able to book a great geo-music experience which some of you might remember from previous events.
Don’t forget to register and we hope to meet you in Wageningen on December 14!
