ESTIEM is the network of all European IEM studies and stands for European Students of Industrial Engineering and Management. This network gives its members the opportunity to get in touch with other students in Europe by joining exchanges and other active, social, cultural and educational events.

The ESTIEM network consists of 72 local groups and Groningen is one of them. Each local group organises activities that are open for all 50.000 members of the ESTIEM network to join.

The ESTIEM committee is responsible for the activities in Groningen and the promotion in Groningen for activities abroad. They organise exchanges to other European cities, the local qualifications for the ESTIEM case competition and a re-exchange where international students come here to Groningen. The committee will also organise a weekend activity and one or more social activities, for example a WoMiBo.
