Alberto Martinetti (1985) is an Associate Professor in the chair of Maintenance Engineering within the department of Design, Production and Management at the University of Twente. He is a member of the maintenance research centre TIME - Twente is Maintenance Excellence. He has worked for the Polytechnic of Turin and for the University of Turin. He holds a Master’s degree in Geo-resources and Geo-technologies Engineering and a PhD degree in Safety and Health at the Polytechnic of Turin in 2013 on the Prevention through Design approach in mining activities. He has co-chaired and organised the Maintenance Research Day for Dutch and Flemish Researchers in 2016-2017-2018 and chaired the 10th Thtough-life Engineering Services Conference (TESconf2021)

He is supervising the following PhD/PDeng students:

- ir. Yawar Abbas (SIRA project), University of Twente.

- ir. Sara Scheffer (AMICO project), University of Twente.

- ir. Ashrith Jain (Maintenance Electric Aviation-DEAC), University of Twente.

- ir. Arno Kok (AMICO project), University of Twente.

- Rober Houghton, Imperial College of London, Uk.

- Alessandro Giacotto, ITA, Brazil.

Alberto is coordinating the Master's specialization (MEO) Maintenance Engineering & Operations in for Mechanical Engineering. He is responsible for the projects AMICO on new maintenance solutions for rolling stock and Nuffic Grant on trainings for refugees and host communities.
