25th to 31st of August 2018
The General Assembly is the annual meeting for the UNITECH International Society. It is a pan-European network of engineering universities, companies, students and alumni. Founded in 2000, UNITECH develops a pipeline of engineers with expert technical backgrounds who excel in innovation, teamwork and effective leadership. At the heart of the network is the UNITECH Programme, which includes an academic exchange among the nine partner universities, an internship with one of the twenty-two partner companies and three week-long modules of intense personal coaching in core professional awareness and skills.
During the General-Assembly week Chalmers and the UNITECH International Society arrange the start-up module for the cohort of students commencing the UNITECH programme and the end-of-year module for the cohort of students finishing the programme. The week also comprises a number of events connecting the students with the partners, as well as other meetings for the partners. A new feature is the collaboration with Universeum, the Gothenburg science centre, for the UNITECH Challenge. The week ends with the graduation ceremony and gala dinner celebrating the new graduates of the programme. The meetings and events are open to the members of the UNITECH International Society.
