The Executive Board is delighted with the appointment. “We see John Schmitz as the ideal person to lead the EEMCS faculty into a new phase in which collaboration with internal and external partners will play an even more important role as EEMCS continues to enhance its reputation as a leading international faculty with a strong ICT profile”, says Rector Karel Luyben.

John Schmitz himself is equally enthusiastic: “I very much look forward to applying my experience in contributing to the education of new generations of engineers who will be at the forefront of a sustainable technological society. I firmly believe that universities in general and a faculty like EEMCS in particular can and must play an instrumental role in achieving this. EEMCS knowledge will be essential in finding solutions to the major challenges facing society.”

The Executive Board would like to thank Rob Fastenau for the quality of his work and his enthusiasm in the role of Dean and for the valuable contribution he has made to TU Delft as a whole.
