Board 2018 – 2019

The fifth board of ASE ‘Aeolus’

Carrying on with the vision and goals of the fourth board of ASE ‘Aeolus’, we begin the fifth year of the association within the EWEM program. We are looking forward to a year full of activities, networking and growth for all the members, and bridging the companies in the wind energy industry with our students, striving for a greener future. Below you can read something about our personal background and ambition within the association. If you want to contact the board, please use the contact form.

Tijn Broersen

Tijn Broersen

President

I am Tijn Broersen and I am the president of the Aeolus board during this year. As president my main responsibilities are the well being of the association and the general operations of the board.

I have a bachelor degree in mechanical engineering from the Technical University in Delft. I became interested renewable energy and particularly in wind energy during my hobby sailing, in previous leadership experiences and internship.

As part of the Aeolus board I would like to expand the network of Aeolus in the wind industry by making companies more aware of the European Wind Energy master and by providing our students with amazing opportunities.

My name is Håkon Sletsjøe and I will be the Treasurer of ASE ‘Aeolus’ during 2018/2019. As the Treasurer my main responsibilities are to manage the finances and the member administration.

I come from Norway but hold a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from UBC in Canada. During my bachelor’s I was involved in research within wind energy which helped guide me towards EWEM. Being able to study and live two more countries, as well as earn a double degree made EWEM my first choice for my master’s. As part of Aeolus I hope to further help advertise the program to give EWEM students greater opportunities.With Aeolus I hope to connect students and companies for mutual benefits. We need to exchange our visions to come to the best wind energy solutions.

Dion Koreman

Dion Koreman

Vice-president

My name is Dion Koreman, the Vice President of ASE ‘Aeolus’. My main responsibility is the contact with external parties, including industry and other relations.

I obtained a BSc in Aerospace Engineering at the Technical University of Delft. I chose EWEM because of the highly innovative and fast growing wind energy industry, of which I am looking forward to be part. The interdisciplinary character of the (renewable) energy market further  motivates me to pursue this program.

My name is Pim Jacobs and I will be the secretary of the ASE Aeolus board 2018-2019. I will mainly focus on help maintaining the overview of the tasks the board holds as well as communications towards the Aeolus members.

I hold a Bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from TU Delft. After doing a wind resource assessment as my bachelor thesis my interest peaked for wind energy and I became aware of EWEM. The combination of the collaborating universities, international character, and excellent program made me apply for EWEM. Aeolus creates a platform where the EWEM students can come together and gain career-related experience and contacts, and I am very pleased I get to be a part of that.

Niek van den Bos

General Operations Manager

I am Niek van den Bos, the General Operations Manager (GOM) of ASE ‘Aeolus’. As the GOM, I will be responsible for the planning and execution of both our professional and social events.

I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering at TU Delft and am now following the Rotor Design (structures) track in the EWEM. Combining sustainable development with state of the art technology is what brought me to the field of wind energy.

I look forward to helping bridge the gap between university and industry for all EWEM students, as well as bringing everybody from our field of studies closer together.
