Business at University (BAU) is the career event for bachelor and master students at the faculty of Architecture at the TU Delft. The goal of BAU is to make connections between students and companies. By participating in our events students can find out what they want to do after their studies or get into contact with future employers.
BAU consists of multiple preparatory events, but the highlight is the business fair. The fair takes place at the faculty so that all students can visit. Another important event are the speed dates. In these personal, brief meetings between students and businesses, connections can be made for internships or jobs. BAU also consists of a series of cases where students get the possibility to work on a design problem for a company. By organising all these events BAU aims to be the link between students and practice. Because of this we want to highlight every aspect of the world of architecture, companies of the following categories will attend BAU.
The business fair is the highlight of the BAU day. This will take place in and around the ‘Orange hall’ of the faculty. The goal of the fair is to get you in contact with all the attending companies. The fair is open to all students, from first-year bachelor- to master students. The BAU fair is your chance to experience and talk to around 30 companies ranging from architecture to real estate. They will present themselves and are eager to get in touch with you!
First of all, what is a case? A case study will make you familiar with the core business of the participating companies in a practical hands-on way. Each company designed a case particularly for BAU and are looking forward to meeting you! Together with a small group of fellow students, you will do the case study in the rooms around the Orange Hall or on an external location.
By participating in the speed dates you will speak with several companies individually. The speed dates consist of different rounds, in this way you will get to know multiple companies more personally in a short period of time. These companies are glad to answer all your questions about the software they use, required qualities and the role of interns and employees
On the day of the business fair, there will be multiple events to prepare you for the meetings with the companies. A career boost company will give workshops in personal branding and career orientation to help you get everything out of the business fair of BAU.
In the weeks prior to BAU there will be several events to prepare you for the event. Get your CV and portfolio checked by a company to make a good impression on BAU. Next to these events there will be several lectures held at the faculty of Architecture
