Media Safari
This activity is organised by the Acquisition Committee.

There is a lot going on in the field of media technology. From more and better cameras, audio and light to IP / Cloudbased solutions, Virtual Reality, algoritms, chatbots and personalization. Media products are becoming IT products, therefore the demand for IT skills and IT professionals in the media industry increases. The media-industry is an interesting workfield for us as UTwente Students says Hilversum Media Campus. Therefore they invite us to a Media Park Safari at the Media Park, on Tuesday May 23rd.

During the Media Park Safari, you’ll get an exclusive look behind the scenes at various media companies. How is it really to work at the Media Park?
