CognAC was founded in 1990 by Cognitive Sciences students. They came up with the name ‘Cognitiewetenschappen Activiteiten Commissie’ or ‘CognAC’ in short! The founders of CognAC had two goals in mind: improve the contact between Cognitive Sciences students and to protect the student interests.
Around 2002/2003 Cognitive Sciences was overhauled and a new study was formed, this new study was Artificial Intelligence. The focus of the study shifted, but the focus of CognAC remained the same, as did our name. In the academic year of 2016/2017 our programme became English and so did our association. We welcome students from all around the world to join our association, and we want all our students to feel at home here in Nijmegen. Throughout the years CognAC grew to become much more than it was initially established for. These days we do not only organize social activities but we also organize activities that help our students with career orientation, and we support our students in their study. These kinds of activities form the core of our association. Even though our association has evolved quite a lot, our goals have always been the same and we hope that CognAC is a valuable addition to the life of our students.
We organise drinks and parties for our members, help them get through their study by e.g. organising course-related workshops, and offer career-oriented and study-related informative activities. We have set up a second-hand book system as well, and we are running a tutoring system. In short: we offer everything AI students need to have a great and effective student life! There’s no reason not to join 😉
Missie & Visie
Our mission is to stimulate social cohesion among our members, help them get through their study, and help them prepare for their future career.
