MSO is composed of members studying both full-time or part-time, in a Bachelor or in a Master’s degree. Those taking part in MSO usually know French, German or English. Some students are bilingual or even trilingual. But the MSO is especially relying on high motivated (under)graduates, who want to have the chance to discover the HEG through a more intimate approach.
In 2017, the structure of the association was completely rethought to satisfy the criteria of a lean organization. By adopting a structure by project, we allow every member to develop his own ideas and, with the help of other voluntary members, to bring them to a successful conclusion. This way of working is very rewarding and offers everyone the freedom of getting involved in management at different levels of commitment, in order not to compromise their studies.
Because of the changes of the statuses and the deletion of the three clubs, the committee must also be adapted. Indeed, besides the posts which can usually be found in associations, we introduced a new role, the project coordinator. For each project, two coordinators will ensure that projects run smoothly and serve as a bridge between the various actors and constituents.
It is also worth reminding that, by the statutes, our participation within the association is limited by the duration of our studies. In order to assure a sustainability and a follow-up of the activities within the MSO, the Vice-President makes a commitment to become the president the following year.
MSO collaborates closely with the HEG and the innovation lab (https://innolabfribourg.ch). It is also opened to any new opportunities, whether it is for professional or cultural projects. The previous collaborations can be found in the annual report.
