Programme Director - Civil Engineering

About Me

I have two roles at the University of Twente. The first is a rather recent one, with me taking on the role of Programme Director for the Civil Engineering Department. This simply means that I am responsible for the strategy and structure of the BSc- programme Civil Engineering, MSc-programme Civil Engineering & Management, 4TU MSc-programme Construction Management & Engineering and the PDEng programme of Civil Engineering. Also, I work closely with a team of education coordinators, study advisers, staff mobility, internationalisation and quality assurance staff of the Office of Educational Support to set up and implement educational programmes that are in line with the Education vision of the University of Twente.

My other role is that of researcher in the Asphalt Paving Research And innovation unit (ASPARi). Our research is focussed on professionalizing the asphalt construction process using an action research methodology. We work closely with asphalt construction teams to reduce process variability and to improve the quality of compacted asphalt layers using an in-house developed Process Quality improvement (PQi) method. We use a combination of high-end GPS, temperature and other sensors to monitor operational behaviour and at the same time get the construction teams to implement and adopt new technologies within more method-based operational strategies. I am responsible for the daily running of the unit, the liaison with the Aspari contractors network who support the research initiatives and the coordination all research activities. I supervise several PhD, PDEng, MSc and BSc student projects.
