6 April 2022 - Tom van Dijk
In this third module the educational bouquet went to dr. Tom van Dijk!
His way of adapting to the many first-year students and the corona times has been complimented by many students. Not only his solutions to these problems but his availability to students and openness for feedback.
No surprise thus that Tom requested the cake at a moment that he could share this cake with his colleagues!
27 January 2022 - Andreas Peter
Last module the educational bouquet went to prof. dr. Andreas Peter!
Sadly, he has left our university but not without getting a thank you from our students for his contributions to their studies. He was an essential part of the cybersecurity theme at our university; from the first module, where he introduced the domain of cybersecurity, to his efforts as coordinator of the cybersecurity master specialization. He was not only guiding and helping all the teachers but also personally helping every student to put together their program for the master and he is known among students for his fast replies. Next to coordinating the cybersecurity program, he also gave the very highly rated master course on Privacy-Enhancing Technologies and guided many graduate students during their master thesis projects.
Andreas response (which goes together with the photo that I attached):
Thank you so much for the nice gifts! I feel honored for receiving the educational bouquet. I very much enjoyed my role as program mentor for the cybersecurity education in Twente and giving several cybersecurity courses to so many of you. I particularly liked the close contacts and interactions with you, which I miss, now that I have left the UT. But I will certainly stay in contact with the UT! For the time being, I am building up my new security research group with an associated education program at the University of Oldenburg in Germany. BTW: I do have open PhD positions; so send me an e-mail if you’re interested … ;)
