Looking for: Python teaching assistants »
For module 7 of TCS, Discrete Structures & Algorithms, the programme is still looking for people experienced in Python to support a number of lab session.
Ideally the TA's should have passed the module themselves, but the programme can also use MSc students who are good at Python; the lab exercises are of a level where you should be able to help out even if you didn't do them yourselves in your own programme.
Interested and do you want to know more about the time slots? Get in touch with Arend Rensink: firstname.lastname@example.org

Education bouquet - Andreas Peter »
Andreas Peter received the education bouquet on the 4th of December.
Andreas Peter is, amongst other courses, responsible for the Cryptography Pearl in the Pearls of Computer Science module. Students find his lectures entertaining and are regarded as most engaging by the first-year students. He gave more freedom without compromising quality and thought about more than just conveying the material. In addition, he thought about how to introduce students to the different university approach to responsibilities. Students seem to appreciate the extra time he put into explaining things outside of the lectures. All this effort is acknowledged by the students via the education bouquet!
Do you know someone who is extremely committed to improve the quality of education or is always willing to help students without hesitation? Then, what are you waiting for? Nominate him or her for the education bouquet! Think for example of a teacher who gives extra lectures or a student assistent who is making hours in overtime to help each and everyone of you! You can nominate someone by going to this page.

New programme directors BIT and CS »
We congratulate Maria Iacob (BIT) and Arend Rensink (CS) with their appointment! But what does it mean you?
The programme director is responsible for the education quality within a specific programme. They can have an enormeous influence, but in all likelihood there won't be any large enough changes that will noticeable to you as a student. In case there will be, please note that the programme director takes advice from the programme committee, which has student members and is easily contactable!
Official announcement (Source)
Prof dr M.E. (Maria) Iacob (research group IEBIS at BMS) will succeed dr L. (Luís) Ferreira Pires as director of the BIT programme. In this way, we execute the agreement that the directorship of this programme is alternately filled by both faculties EEMCS and BMS.
Prof ir A. (Arend) Rensink will be the new programme director of Computer Science, starting 1 September. He succeeds prof.dr.ir. G.J. (Geert) Heijenk, who was programme director for a period of more than 3 years.
I am convinced that both programmes are in good hands with the new programme directors and I wish Maria and Arend all the best in their new roles.
On behalf of the faculty board,
Joost Kok Dean
