De meningen ge-uit door medewerkers en studenten van de TU Delft en de commentaren die zijn gegeven reflecteren niet perse de mening(en) van de TU Delft.

Wel vindt de TU Delft het belangrijk - en ook waarde toevoegend - dat medewerkers en studenten op deze, door de TU Delft gefaciliteerde, omgeving hun mening kunnen geven.

‘Our’ Calvin Rans best teacher of the Netherlands

Calvin Rans is the best teacher of the Netherlands. And guess what? He is teaching you and your fellow students the best lessons in Aerospace Engineering; just at our own university! The jury was head over heels about his efforts to improve his lectures. TU Delft has more nationally awarded teachers, such as Alexandru Losup, who won the award for best Dutch teacher in 2015.

The unique gift of lecturer Rans

Books? Boring lectures? Nope, professor Rans has the unique talent to make complex ideas and concepts easy to understand. That is why professor Rans was signed up for the competition of best teacher in the Netherlands, just by his own students! His students and professor Rans himself were more than happy that he was voted for best teacher of the Netherlands.

On 17 April Calvin was recognized for his achievement by Rector Magnificus Tim van der Hagen, Vice President Education Rob Mudde and Dean of Aerospace Engineering Henri Werij. His colleagues, members of the student council,  study association VSV and – of course – his own students attended the festive event.

The Alumni Relations Office and Studium Generale have launched a new series called Inspiring Dialogues: interactive interviews with renowned DUT alumni giving you, the students, a chance to meet and talk to inspiring personalities that will help you skyrocket your career!

After a successful kick-off, we continue the series with Ionica Smeets on 7 May 2019! Our Alumnus of the year in 2018 graduated from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics & Computer Science in 2005, and is currently Professor of Science Communication at Leiden University. The general public knows her for her popular science columns, blogs, books and television work. She has also written several books on science communication.

During this interview Ionica shares her experiences as a student at our University and reveals how she became how she became an outspoken advocate of science communication. It goes without saying that there’s room for questions, so come join us and prepare to be inspired!

Sign up now and arrive early, because the first 50 students (present at the event) receive a copy of the book ‘Het exacte verhaal’ or ‘Don’t be such a scientist’ for free!

 Our ‘best lecturer’ Calvin Rans nominated for national award

Dr. Calvin Rans, lecturer at the faculty of Aerospace Engineering, has reached the final round in the yearly national ‘Best Lecturer in 2019’ contest. The event will take place on April 13th in the Utrecht Jaarbeurs.

Calvin and the other three finalists will give inspiring mini-lectures on various of their field-related topics. The Minister of Education, Culture and Science, Ingrid van Engelshoven, will be present for the award ceremony.

Let’s hope he impresses the national jury as much as he did the jury in Delft. Giulia Calabretta, TU Delft lecturer at the faculty of Industrial Design was runner up in the national contest of 2018. On 13 April we know whether Calvin has had just as much or perhaps even more success.

During the Education Day last year on November 8, Calvin was already awarded as Best TU Delft Lecturer. The Aerospace Engineering study association (VSV) nominated him for this title. He had to compete to seven nominees who were chosen by their faculty.
