1.       Information on events for the rest of the year

The Prosessiteekkarit board made the decision to continue the decision made in October related to events. The updated decision was made at the board meeting held on 26.10. and it can be read below:

Prosessiteekkarit will not organise events for over 50 people inside. Events for over 50 people can be organised outside, if people that attend are divided into less than 50 people groups that will not interact during the event. The events organised are held in a way where the risk of transmission is minimised. For example, sitsit will not be organised. These decisions are valid until the end of the year.

2.       Application period for PT official positions opens on 10.11.

The Association of Process Engineering Students is looking for new volunteers for official positions for the upcoming year. You can read more about the official positions at: https://prosessiteekkarit.fi/en/tasks/
This year, the official applications are divided into the positions suitable for everyone and the positions that require previous experience relating to the task. You can find the positions suitable for everyone here, and the positions that require previous experience here.

Being an official is an excellent addition to your studies, and they are not too demanding in terms of load. In official positions you get a chance to get to know how the association works up close and help in organizing and developing the association’s activities.

The association’s board will host an information session on the official positions on the 11th of November starting at 15:00 in Zoom (link in emailed newsletter) where you get to hear more about the official positions.

 

When you are registering, choose the positions that you want to apply to. You can apply for as many positions as you want, but you may not be chosen for all of them. We also ask you to write in brief why you are applying for the positions you are applying for. The association’s upcoming board will decide who to choose for the official positions during December. The upcoming board’s members may send you additional questions relating to the position. The application period ends on the 2nd of December 2020.

 

If you have any questions about the official positions or applying for them, please contact the head of that specific committee (you can find the heads of the committees here: https://prosessiteekkarit.fi/en/officials/).

 

WHAT? The Association of Process Engineering Students’ official position application for 2021

WHERE? Positions suited for everyone and the more demanding positions

WHEN? 10.11.-2.12.2020

WHY? Because volunteering is the bestest thing

3.       PT’s Wiener Info 11.11.

Who makes sure the sitsis have food and program? Who is responsible for the visual look of the association? Who ensures the association’s sponsors income and the organization of corporate events? Who cares about the well-being and exercise opportunities of the members? Who writes the hilarious articles in the association magazine, ProTeesi?

 

A wiener is a colloquial term used in Finnish to describe a fairly small but important job that is given to someone. In terms of our association, this job means being an official for the association. An official helps out a certain member of the board throughout the year.

 

We will have an info session regarding the official tasks on the 11th of November starting at 15:00. If you’re interested in hearing about how you can help the association, be sure to join us!

 

The Wiener info is held remotely via Zoom. The Info is also recorded so you can return to view tasks again!

 

Most of the volunteer tasks are suitable for fuksis, but for some tasks prior experience related to the task is needed. These tasks are marked with a star (*). Board positions are recommended for second-year and older students.

 

You can also read about the different official and board tasks here: https://www.prosessiteekkarit.fi/en/tasks

 

WHAT: Wiener Info AKA introduction to different board and official tasks in the association

Does sewing new patches into overalls feel tedious? Are your fingers in screws right at the beginning and the thread isn’t going to be found in the eye of the needle? No worries, help is near!

 

We want to make it easier for everyone to progress in patch sewing by organizing PT’s own overalls sewing evenings. In the evenings you can come to sew patches into your overalls, hear tips and just spend time with good company. There is also a possibility to buy some patches, if you want.

 

If you don’t feel like sewing overalls, there are also board games and other games to play during the evening!

 

We will arrange 2 sewing evenings in the OK20 upstairs and each sewing evening can accommodate 28 participants. With limited facilities and number of participants, please attend only one evening that suits you. The event dates are Tuesday November 17 and Thursday November 19. See that the dates have changed a bit!

 

You can arrive at OK20 starting from 6 pm.

What are the benefits?

As a student representative, you will gain networks, influence and confidence!

You can get to know and work with Aalto staff

You can directly influence study-related decisions

You will get to know advocacy work and other student representatives

How to apply?

9.       CHEM Appros 12.11.

In November, we can forget the failed attempts of CHEM Fun, because the School of Chemical Engineering has its own playful appro, CHEM-Appro, that will come to the Otaniemi area!

 

During the appro day, you will be able to get to know more of CHEM’s own guilds, ie the Chemistry Guild, the Forest Products Guild and the Guild of Materials and Metallurgy, as well as the guild’s activities through a playful checkpoint tour.

 

Appros are events organized especially among university students, where you can tour different points or bars, enjoy a voluntary drink / refreshment at each point in addition to other activities in the checkpoint. During the year, several appros are organized, the most well-known are the Poli and Dipoli appros.

 

CHEM-Appro itself is implemented in a BYOB (bring your own bottles) style, so that in every checkpoint a voluntary own drink or a refreshment is drunk. To get a drinking point on your appro map, you should return an empty bottle/can to the checkpoint.

 

You will earn an appro overalls totem as a reward for accomplishing the appro map!

 

You can attend appros always with non-alcoholic beverages or you can just come to complete the checkpoints without drinking.

 

Registration for the event opens at 3.11. 12:00 and closes 12.11. 14:00.

Link to the registration: https://www.prosessiteekkarit.fi/ilmo/event/54

 

Registration instructions:

Participants can go around in groups, maximum is 10 people. The starting point is determined by the registration quota. At the starting points, participants will be divided into smaller groups and they will get their appro maps. If you want to be in the same group with a certain friend, please sign up for the same quota. 4 quotas (140 people) are reserved for fuksis, one (30 people) for International / Degree students and one (30 people) for everyone in general.
