Vinod Subramaniam has the first day on ‘the job’ ahead of him. Today, he is arriving to the University of Twente as the new President of the Executive Board. He talks about his expectations, the importance of diversity and being one of the first non-Western leaders at a Dutch university. ‘I look forward to working with the community. This is not a solo journey.’
The Executive Board proposes to have an application fee for students applying at the UT. For now, the fee would be introduced as a pilot project and concern only new Master students at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS). This was suggested during the University Council meeting held today.
