Since January 2008 I have been a member a student organization DSE (The Student Business Relations), which aims to create a dialogue that allows engineering students and industry to keep abreast of developments within each other's territories.
My own personal reason why I just became an active member of the association was aimed at doing something for others voluntarily, and create new social relationships with students from other disciplines. Another purpose I had to just to be active in the association was to get a better understanding of the engineering firms that are remarkable in the Danish and international market.
This increased knowledge should lead that I would get a greater awareness of what companies could be potential jobs in the future after completion of study. I saw an opportunity for personal development in DSESince there was ample opportunity to quickly assume the coordination functions without having been in the association for a long time. Assume a coordinator post, which was allocated a budget and a working group under him, placed demands on one quick and art here was as to coordinate and delegate work so that tasks were met with satisfaction. Work at University of Aalborg of projects are usually theoretically based, where practical work is minimal, but with a co-ordinator post and the work of DSE, was suddenly an opportunity to review things as you normally would not get the opportunity because of economics or time.
