In addition to lectures, excursions and drinks, the study association SERVICE also organizes a study trip abroad every year, the SERVICE Global Study Trip. This is a good way to get acquainted with the working methods, corporate culture and mentality of real estate companies and the real estate market of other countries. During the trip, the real estate market is highlighted through lectures, company visits, excursions and workshops. This year SERVICE is organizing a study trip to New York.
Once a year, SERVICE publishes the SERVICE Magazine. The magazine was founded simultaneously with the study association and the first edition was released in 1994. The magazine has grown to become a well-known magazine for students, alumni and the professional real estate sector. Making it the showpiece of the study association. The edition is still growing and currently 1400 people are receiving the magazine. A large variety of topics are included in the magazine, covering the complete range of aspects within the world of real estate. On this, one could think about the management of dwellings, utility buildings, facility management, real estate investment, area development and much more.
Study association SERVICE was founded in the study year 1992-1993 and is attached to the master Urban Systems & Real Estate (previously called Real Estate Management and Development) of the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Since the founding, SERVICE strives to make the bridge between the students and the practical field of work as small as possible. This is being done by organizing formal and informal activities.
One of the most important goals of the study association is the exchange of knowledge from the field of practice and education to companies, organizations and students. We as SERVICE strive to get in touch with companies and organizations out of the urban systems and real estate sector on different levels. Functioning as an intermediary between students and companies
SERVICE is there for the students and has two main goals: One of the goals is to enable the urban systems and real estate students of the TU/e to get in touch with a constantly changing world of real estate, urban planning, and transportation. This is done in an informal and formal way. The other goal is to inform students well on the education provided at the University.
