TU Delft's Best Lecturer and Most Innovative Teaching Talent

  • Rans, Calvin (Recipient)

Prize: Prize (including medals and awards)


Calvin Rans, assistant professor in the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering (AE), has been chosen TU Delft’s Best Lecturer of 2018. He is well known as a very approachable and engaged lecturer, who asks students for feedback in order to further improve his lectures. His students are highly enthusiastic about the courses he lectures on: his first year course Mechanics of Materials is taught in a blended way, linking in with students’ questions, and he manages to make the ‘tough’ second-year course, Structural Analysis & Design, interesting partly by using examples that bring the theory to life.
