The Dies Natalis of the 11th Lustrum

Each and every year, Scintilla celebrates their anniversary (AKA the Dies Natalis) on the 9th of September, or on any convenient Friday around that day. Usually accompanied by a tasty piece of cake, members come together in the old faithful Abscint to share a beer and celebrate the birthday of their study association. However, in 2020 the Dies Natalis was a little different, in more ways than one. This year Scintilla celebrates their 55th birthday, which means that this year we celebrate the 11th Lustrum year. ...

When opportunity knocks, dare to open the door

Experienced people know that careers are founded on as much luck as judgement and skill, as Arnela Masic discovered during her engineering studies in 2015. One lucky moment put her on a path to the career she enjoys today: she forgot her lunch. “A friend suggested I could get a free lunch at an ASML-hosted lunch meeting on campus that day. It was there I learned about the ASML scholarship. I applied and was eventually selected – it felt pretty special as only 25 scholarships are on offer in the Netherlands each year. ...

But not everyone is satisfied with the current dogroup system. The current ren-je-rot (run-like-hell) system has seen more than its fair share of criticism. ...

Do-group Family Tree: Catching up to the past

In a previous article the history of Electrical Engineering do-groups was explored after a dive into the Scintilla archives. A lot of information was dug up, but a lot remained hidden. Thanks to contributions by some do-group veterans, many improvements could be made to the orignal tree. With memories, some more vivid than others, and the help of photographic evidence, the family tree could be updated until the turn of the century. ...
