Electrical Engineering Education Section big winners of the Teacher of the Year Awards
- Friday, 10 June 2022
On June 7, student association Christiaan Huygens organized their annual teacher of the year event. Ir. Egbert Bol (the chair of EEE section) won the Teacher of the Year Award for the EEMCS faculty. Ir. Bol was also named the Online Teacher of the Year for the EE Department. Dr. Ilke Ercan (EEE section) was selected the Best Teacher of the Year for the EE Department by student votes. She was followed by Dr. Ioan Lager (also EEE section) who came second place for the EE Department Teacher of the Year.
The Electrical Engineering Education Section is shared by the Department of Electrical and Sustainable Energy and the Department of Microelectronics, with a seizable contribution of the Department of Quantum Computing and Computer Engineering, but problem-solving falls under the Department of Microelectronics.
The primary task of the Section is to anchor the hands-on education in the Electrical Engineering curriculum. The BSc-EE program has a range of practicals, aimed at training the students in real-world problem solving skills, teamwork, and reporting. Throughout the first two years of the BSc, a path is followed from close-guided semi-practicals to distance-guided projects without a predefined outcome, in the form of so-called EPO projects. This then culminates in the third year in the BSc End Project, where teams of students work on a much more open-ended assignment (often defined by themselves as well).
The Section consists of a number of teaching staff, as well as a number of technical support staff. The Section is responsible for running the Tellegen Hall, where students work on the practicals.
