Chemical Science & Engineering welcomes New Programme Director

On March 1st, Leonie Krab-HÜSken will take over the ROLE OF THE PROGRAMME DIRECTOR Chemical Science & Engineering from André ten elshof.

André ten Elshof has shown years of experience and commitment to the programme and will be missed. The Chemical Science & Engineering (CSE) team and the Faculty board would like to thank him warmly for his contribution and wish him all the best for the future.

On March 1st, Leonie will take over the role of programme director CSE. After finishing her PhD in bioprocess engineering in Wageningen, Leonie has been involved in research and education policy with NWO, Leiden University, and UT. Subsequently, she was involved in many educational activities within UCT-ATLAS education, before joining the CSE programme as coordinator and education innovator.

Dr. Ir. Leonie Krab-Hüsken

I look forward to continuing working on this fascinating programme. Chemical scientists and chemical engineers have an important role in society: green chemistry, sustainable processes, and materials are key for the future. Our students rightly expect that we educate them to be part of this transition, and with our motivated and committed lecturers and staff, we will make sure that the CSE programme delivers well-equipped alumni for the current challenges.

Dr. Ir. Leonie Krab-Hüsken

Stefan Kooij: "We are excited about the appointment of Leonie as programme director CSE. She will be a valuable addition to the education management team of our faculty. We look forward to working with Leonie and the programme management team, to build on the excellent achievements of the CSE programme and further develop its unique profile. We wish her a lot of success and enjoyment in her new position!" 

This transition marks a new phase for Chemical Science & Engineering, and we are excited to see what the future holds under Leonie's leadership.
