Start of PDEng projects

10 september 2015

Janine Profijt, Tracey olde Rikkert and Denis Makarov recently started their PDEng projects with ASPARi.

Denis Makorov joins us all the way from Russia to work on the Real-time Process Control project. ASPARi members have continually stressed the need for real-time process control to support operators in achieving a more consistent, method-based asphalt construction process. Denis will deal with some challenges including dealing with large data sets, processing continuous data streams on the fly, providing appropriate real-time visualizations and the integration of contextual data such as weather conditions and asphalt mix temperature.

UT MSc graduates Janine Profijt (Ommen) and Tracey olde Rikkert (Borne) will be involved in the ASPARi project “Developing innovative course materials for Road Construction Education at the MBO and HBO levels”. They will work closely with ASPARi members, industry experts and current MBO and HBO teachers to develop technologically innovative course and instructional materials for Road Construction. One of the challenges facing them is developing a Digital Learning Environment in which the latest innovative technologies can assist students in developing better skills and competences. Some of the questions they will deal with include: (a) What learning, knowledge, skills and attributes should graduates have to be able to deal with these challenging changing circumstances?  (b) Which course materials should be developed for instruction at MBO and HBO levels to ensure that the current workforce is able to cope with the demands of a rapidly changing and technology-rich construction industry?
