Bernoulli Goes Abroad

About BGA

The BGA committee is established to organise a biennial study trip for a group of enthusiastic Bernoulli members. The aim of this trip is to get students acquainted with the chemical industry and universities of a different country and explore its culture.

In order to participate in the study trip, case studies are performed for companies in the Netherlands. The case studies are executed in duos, whereby each student spends 140 hours on the case study during a period of 3 months. After successfully accomplishing the case study each student receives 5 ECTS.

The last BGA trip was in the summer of 2018, to Brazil.

BGA 2018

The destination of the trip in the summer of 2018 was Brazil! From the 21th of June – 10th of July 2018,  a group of Bernoullians travelled through Brazil, accompanied by two professors: prof. dr. H.J. Heeres  and prof. dr. P.P. Pescarmona. The following theme was assigned to the trip:

 “Bernoulli ao Progresso”


Excursions to companies and universities were organized in order to gain insight and knowledge in the working atmosphere in Brazil and the differences between the Dutch and Brazilian educational and research programs. Different locations were visited across this beautiful country. In addition, the travel programme contained several recreational activities to experience the Brazilian culture.
