Ir. J.W. (Hans) Welleman


Hans Welleman has graduated from TU-Delft, faculty of Civil Engineering in 1990 with specialisation Structural Mechanics. 
After his graduation he has joined the Structural Mechanics group as a junior researcher working on the Discrete Finite Element program TILLY. Special points of interest has been the nonlinear solvers for both static and dynamic load conditions.

From 1996 till 2000 he joined the Haarlem Polytechnic University as a lecturer in Civil Engineering with specialisation structural mechanics, concrete and foundation engineering. He received his educational license from the University of Amsterdam (UvA) in 2001.

From 2000 he re-joined the Structural Mechanics group as a senior lecturer for the Structural Mechanics Courses in the BSc- and MSc-programme. He became  also the educational representative of the group and the department in the organisation of the Faculty and coordinator of the BSc-thesis projects.

Since 2013 he was the Director of Studies for both the BSc and MSc programme in Civil Engineering and as from 2018 he is the Director of Education of the faculty of Civil Engineering and Geoscience.
