Specific measures for the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering
Last update: 08-09-2020
Starting points faculty of Aerospace Engineering:
- We are not allowed to close the university or the faculty. This is prohibited by law. The university is a public place and it will remain open for the time being.
- We must also continue to provide education, this too is the law. For the time being, this must be done by means of online education. There is an obligation to make an effort, not an obligation to achieve results. Best effort. Until the end of the academic year - including the retake period - all education (including exams) will be offered online.
- All corona measures will be extended until 1 September. These include: working from home as much as possible, observing the hygiene measures and keeping a distance of 1.5 metres from each other.
- On 31 August 2020 phase 2 of the faculty corona-plan will start. The standard rule stays the same: work from home when you can. But there will be more room for students and staff to come to the faculty building. Read the full update.
- Graduation sessions must also continue. Students are entitled to this. We need to see how we can facilitate this with committee members who may want to/must participate via Skype. The urgent advice is to let the graduation sessions take place without an audience; at various other faculties this is already standing policy.
- We will apply the 1.5 m distance rules very strictly. Our faculty Corona Crisis Team and the Management Team play an exemplary role in this.
- Announced measures may change or become stricter in the very short term.
- Our Faculty Corona Crisis Team (FCCT) has a weekly meeting.
- Our FCCT must apply the principles of crisis management, including: Communication (to LR Community) goes through FCCT Chairman, i.e. Dean.
- We must keep an eye on the ability to allow critical processes to continue. The staffing of the in-house emergency response team (BHV) is a crucial point in this respect. The BHV- coordinator checks every morning how many BHV-officers are in the building that day. In order to keep the building and facilities open, a minimum number of BHV-officers is required.
