Over 3000 students visit the events of De Delftse Bedrijvendagen every year

About DDB

Since 1996, ‘De Delftse Bedrijvendagen’ has been the best way for students from Delft to establish contact with companies that are of interest to them for possible internships, graduation research projects and jobs. Last edition, over 140 companies participated and approximately two thirds of all graduating students at the TU visited our career events.

History

Before 1996 there were two major career fairs in Delft. The chemical and mechanical engineering study associations Technologisch Gezelschap and Gezelschap Leeghwater organized the ‘Bedrijvendagen Delft’. In addition, the ’Bedrijvencarré’ was organized by Vereniging voor Technische Physica, W.I.S.V. ‘Christiaan Huygens', VSV 'Leonardo da Vinci' and i.d., which are the study association for Applied Physics, Applied Mathematics and Computer Science, Aerospace Engineering and Industrial Design Engineering. In 1995 five of the six named study associations decided to organize one big career fair together. The reason was that the Delft University of Technology and the industry benefited from having only one major career fair. i.d. withdrew herself. On December 19th, 1995 the foundation 'De Delftse Bedrijvendagen' was founded. This is also the date on which the most important alliance of study associations in Delft was founded. This alliance is known as the Pentagon and consist of five study associations:

Goals
