Robotics Committee

The goal of the Robotics Committee is to improve the Robotics master by giving feedback to the Master’s organizers and the staff and CoR. By having weekly meetings with students, the CoR staff and the Quality Assurance department, the Committee continuously strives to improve the education of the Master for future students.

In the Robotics Committee, the members will be led by the Committee’s President who is responsible to keep the overview of the Robotics Master, evaluates the pitfalls on an educational and a logistic level, and plans meetings with the corresponding 3ME staff and the Robotics Committee. The main tasks of a president are:

  • Setting up meetings
  • Preparing meetings using the feedback provided by the other members
  • Creating a creative work atmosphere
  • Delegating tasks between the panel members
  • Keeping the overview and identifying current pitfalls
  • Having the same responsibilities as a general member.
The other student Members will always prepare the meeting and send their input about the Robotics Master to the president in advance. They identify problems on educational and on a logistic level, but more importantly think of solutions. They are also frequently in contact with other students to ask them about their experiences and identify issues perceived to them to address in the Robotics Committee meetings.

Co-Creators of the Robotics Master

Looking at the picture above from left to right Joram van der Sluis, Rutger Dirks, Pepijn Grégoire, Lauren Ickenroth and Ario Maleek (not in picture) are the co-creators of the Robotics Master.
Starting early 2019, Joram van der Sluis and Lauren Ickenroth together with the Study Association of Vehicle Engineering (SAVE) started a collaboration with the Cognitive Robotics department to develop a new Master course: The Master of Robotics. This collaboration resulted in the foundation of The Robotics Committee of Co-Creators in Oktober 2019, with Joram (President of the Panel and master student VE: Perception and Modelling), Lauren (Master student VE: Human Factors and former Industrial Design Engineering student) and additional members Pepijn Grégoire (SAVE IV Board’s Head of Education, master student VE: Dynamics and Control), Rutger Dirks (SAVE IV Board’s Head of Internal Affairs, master student VE: Perception and Modelling) and Ario Maleek (International student representative, master student VE: Perception and Modelling).  

Robotics Committee of Co-Creators

By having frequent meetings with Linette Bossen from Quality Assurance of the Education Organisation of 3mE, interviews with professors and students, and by contributing feedback and ideas based on student experience, the Committee of Co-Creators shaped the content and structure of the Master of Robotics. For the official audit by the NVAO to approve the new Master, the Robotics Committee of Co-Creators submitted the following video in which they state why the Robotics Master is Unique, and why it is important that students have a say in the development of a Course at the University.

After the creation of the Robotics Master, the Robotics Committee of Co-Creators transitioned to the Robotics Committee, a new committee that focusses on improving the Robotics Master by giving feedback to the Master’s organizers and staff.
