Celebrating our emergency response officers

Monday 7 November is National Emergency Response Officer Day: a good reason to celebrate and express our appreciation for all the emergency response officers at The Hague University of Applied Sciences.

Our emergency response staff provides first aid services and assists during fire and other evacuations. They render first aid and make sure, for example, that everyone has vacated the building in the event of an evacuation.

We are treating our emergency response staff to a special lunch to mark the occasion. You might also want to take advantage of this opportunity to thank them for their efforts.

TIS Delft has outgrown itself

On Tuesday 1 November, the temporary accommodation in Delft was festively opened by Henri van de Brug, Dean of the Faculty of Facilities & IT, and Sander van Ipenburg Grijpma, Dean of the Faculty of Technology, Innovation & Society.

Students of the Smart Manufacturing & Robotics minor programme had programmed a robot to cut the ribbon. The extension to the building is needed to accommodate the number of technology students and, consequently, lecturers, that continues to grow. The annex contains six seminar rooms, each of which can accommodate 30 students.
