Last month we wrote about the Student Talks meetup, in which ambitious students spoke about how generation Y can change the world. One of those students was Marco van der Werf, co-founder of BIT Students, a group of forty outstanding IT students working for corporates and startups, making use of the latest technological developments. And with success.
How to keep up with technological changes
Student Marco van der Werf felt bored during his master Information Sciences. He says that the digital world is moving so fast that it is hard for universities to keep up. Van der Werf: “It takes time to update the curriculum, and therefore study materials are often outdated. IT changes so rapidly, that if you stop programming for one year, you are already very far behind.” To solve this problem, he created BIT (Bright IT) students, a group of highly ambitious IT students who are looking for that extra challenge.
