What is AnArchi?
AnArchi is the study association for architecture, connected to the Master program Architecture, Building and Planning (ABP) and the track of Architectural Urban Design and Engineering (AUDE) of the department of the Built Environment at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).
For more than ten years now, AnArchi aims to serve the interests of architecture students by connecting students to education and practice. Important for this is building and maintaining relations and collaborations within and outside of the university. The association wants to motivate students to further develop their architectural interests and to form a critical attitude being architectural designers. Knowing that the field of architecture is highly dynamic and ranges from practical to theoretical aspects, AnArchi aims to broaden the students’ knowledge
in the various scopes of the field. We try to accomplish this by providing the students with indepth as well as broadening activities outside of the regular education program. Examples of these activities are lectures, workshops, debates and an annual study trip abroad. This wide variety of activities offered by AnArchi has made the association a central point for all
architecture students at the TU/e.
Why become a board member?
Being a board member of a study association is a great experience that not only adds value to your student time, but will continue to be of value during your career and life in general. You have a lot of freedom to organize the things that you think are important.
Being responsible for running an association helps you to develop your organization and social skills and helps you develop other skills specific to your function. Examples of this are leadership, finances, writing, planning activities, organizing events and networking and contacting architecture offices and other companies.
These are the skills that you will carry and apply into your later career as well. Being or having been a board member can open you up to job and internship opportunties during and after your study.
Last but not least, it does not only grant you skills and opportunities, but it also introduces you to many fellow students and a lot of new friends, making your student time a lot more fun!
