  • What is Thor?

The e.t.s.v. Thor is the study association of the department of Electrical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology. It is the study association for students from Electrical Engineering and Automotive Technology. Thor was founded in 1957, in the same year as the university itself. Thor organizes activities that bring students in direct contact with the engineering industry. By organizing and taking part in these activities, students are able to get a broader view of the fields known as Electrical Engineering and Automotive Technology. Examples of these activities include symposia, corporate excursions and guest lectures. In addition to that, Thor regularly organizes study tours to give the students an insight into the international Electrical Engineering and Automotive Technolgoy industry. There was a study tour planned for 2020 to China, the study tour Shenlong, but this was cancelled because of corona measures. The most recent study tour was the study tour SPARK, which went to Russia and South-Korea in 2017. Earlier study tours include Prosperando to Brazil in 2014 and Satori to Japan in 2011. Other study tours have had destinations such as Scandinavia, the Czech Republic and South Africa.
