The Executive Board has reappointed Professor Henri Werij as Dean of the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering (AE). Werij took office as dean on June 1, 2017 and will begin a second four-year term on June 1 next.

Henri Werij is looking forward to the next four years: “We are on the right track with our mission of climate-neutral flying, but there are still major challenges ahead, not only in aviation, but also in space. I look forward to putting my shoulder to the wheel here in the coming years, together with all the colleagues and students of this great faculty.”

The Executive Board is pleased that Werij is willing to continue his deanship. Tim van der Hagen, Rector Magnificus and President of the Executive Board: “Over the past four years, Henri Werij has shown himself to be an inspiring leader for students and staff and has put the faculty further on the map as a frontrunner in research on sustainable aviation. We are pleased that he is willing to continue with this for another term.”
