Obituary Dr. Harry Aarts

With pain in our hearts we inform you that the beloved Harry Aarts has passed away at the age of 59, on Sunday the 9th of August.

Harry was an enthusiastic Mathematics professor beloved by many students, because of his enthusiastic teaching style and patient support for all students. Harry had worked at the university for almost 25 years, at the EEMCS faculty.

Within Inter-Actief Harry Aarts was so well appreciated that he managed to win almost every Computer Science teaching award for which he was nominated. For this reason a special clause had to be added to the award that stated professors could only be nominated every other year, the so-called "Harry Aarts" clause.

We will miss Harry dearly, with his friendly smile, and his clear passion for teaching.

Everyone has the opportunity to share their memories and stories of Harry via this website.

Our deepest condolences to his family and friends.

On behalf of the Board of Inter-Actief.
