Hello to all newcomers (= fuksis) of Hiukkanen!
Congratulations of the awesome choice of place of study and university, TUT! The Guild of Science and Engineering Hiukkanen takes you into its caring arms from Kickstart (August 18th ).
What is this guild Hiukkanen then? Hiukkanen is the student association of you bachelor’s degree programme in Science and Engineering and also the Finnish programmes of Engineering and Natural Sciences and teachers of mathematic subjects. We call the student associations guilds in field of technologies. Hiukkanen organizes all kinds of events for its members, for example sitsis, excursions to companies, and sauna evenings, and also does some serious safe-guarding of the study programmes by collecting feedback from courses and choosing student representatives to different groups in university. A lot of these words might be strange to you, but don’t worry, you’ll get to know them soon! In addition, our guild has its own guild room in the basement of Sähkötalo. You will visit it in the orientation week.
In addition to all this, we organize events for you fuksis only, with other guilds of TUT too! The fuksi captains of Hiukkanen will take care of you with tutors the whole year! You should mark the fuksi weekend to your calendars (August 30st – 31st ), it’s organized just for you and it’s totally free! The students of your programme also founded a club of your own, TaSciEn, last spring. Hiukkanen and TaSciEn will do a lot co-operation during next year. You’ll find more info of TaSciEn in here (laita tähän sisäinen linkki jos onnistuuuuuuu).
Even though teekkariculture and student life are compelling, but remember to study, too. There is a lot of information that you’ll get during the orientation week, so don’t worry if you forget something. Guild is here for you and will help you with your problems. Never hesitate to ask, if you have any questions (even before orientation week)!
Have a lovely end of summer, we can’t wait to meet you in kickstart!
