Winners BME professor award 2014

Richard Lopata and René van Donkelaar received the BME Professor awards 2014 yesterday, during the weekly drinks of the student association Protagoras. Students could vote and three nominees were selected in each category, a couple of weeks ago. Yesterday we finally heard who won the BME professor awards for Bachelor’s and Master’s this year.

Lopata had to go up against Sander Nijdam and René van Donkelaar in the category ‘BME Professor award Bachelor’s’. Students gave the feedback that he clearly showed passion for the course and that he always has time to answer questions. He even gave a matlab course to the students in his own free time, because the students requested this!

Van Donkelaar had to go up against Holger Grüll and Lech Milroy in the category ‘BME Professor award Master’s’. Students gave the feedback that he clearly radiated pleasure and inspiration, and that he can tell a clear story. He is also very approachable and he keeps students focussed.

We congratulate both with this honorary award.
