Hoi! I am Lars van den Berg and during the study year 2022 - 2023 I will fulfill the position of chair at Dispuut Verkeer.

Emma Dijkstra

Hey everyone! I’m Emma, the new secretary of Dispuut Verkeer. I’m in my second year of TIL, with a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design Engineering. My task is to keep all of Dispuut Verkeers members updated with all that is going on. You can expect to receive a lot of messages from me! But also don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions about anything. I’m also responsible for taking care of various media channels. One of them being the Fly-Over, which is our magazine filled with all kinds of transport & DV related items! Another important media channel is our new website, which I will help maintain. I’m also part of the Study Tour Committee, where we will be organizing a trip during the summer holidays. In my free time I enjoy watching movies (feel free to send recommendations), going to the gym and doing fun activities with my friends. I’m looking forward to being a part of this board with my fellow board members!

Ian Trout
Commissioner of Education TIL

Hi! My name is Ian Trout, I'm 32 years old and I'm a first year Transport, Infrastructure and Logistics (TIL) student. I did my bachelors in Civil Engineering at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon, USA. I've worked for almost a decade for the City of San Francisco in their Transportation Engineering department; designing, legislating, and constructing bicycle and transit projects. I really enjoy that the TIL Master is organized by multiple faculties and tries to combine freight (logistics) with passenger transport. This year I will fulfill the role of Commissioner of Education for TIL. My main tasks will be around representing students and I am responsible for all student contact regarding education. Hence, I will be in close contact with the Board of Studies and the professors of the TIL curriculum. Additionally it is my task to organise the course evaluations and communicate these with the lecturers. If you have any questions related to education or the TIL curriculum, feel free to contact me and I’ll be happy to help.
