Commissioner of Education

The position of the Commissioner of Education within the board of the MV is being the connection between the students and the education program. The Commissioner of Education is present in several committees within the faculty, which all have influence on the quality of the education. The commissioner of Education is participating in the Faculty Student Council (FSC), Board of Studies (BoS), the Commissioner of Education meetings of the Student Association Council (SVR-O). Besides participating in these meetings, the Commissioner of Education also guides the STARO and (together with the study advisor) the mentor mentoring system for the first year students and has repeatingly meetings with the staff of Quality Control of CEG. The Commissioner of Education has lots of contact with several staff members of the faculty, so if you have complaints or questions, you can always contact him/her. You can visit the MV room or send an e-mail to Onderwijs-MV@tudelft.nl!

Course Evaluations

After every exam period a survey is send out to all students about every course they attended. EvaSys is the system that is used to make these surveys, this can both be digital and written.  These evaluations are important to keep the quality of our education high. The main goal of these evaluations is to improve the quality and to reduce bottlenecks. The results are discussed in the meetings together with students in meetings such as the STARO and the Board of Studies. The faculty is able to improve the quality of the programs, but only if all the students fill out the surveys! The surveys are the responsibilities of the Quality Control department and are discussed with the Commissioner of Education.
