Sentinel North Student Association

Established in the Fall of 2017, the Sentinel North Student Association (Association étudiante de Sentinelle Nord - AÉSN) aims to strengthen the sense of belonging to the Sentinel North community and foster the development of a transdisciplinary network of contacts.


More precisely, the Association commits to:

  • Broadcasting information relevant to students evolving within Sentinel North
  • Connecting Sentinel North students with each other
  • Planning social and educative activities
  • Representing students in the decision-making processes of Sentinel North



Logo competition

The Association launched a logo contest at the Sentinel North second annual meeting. The participants voted and the winner is Mohamed Badine, master's student in computer science. Congratulations!
