Senior lecture and researcher Jouke Heringa installed as Guest Professor in China

On December 6th, in an official ceremony Delta Academy senior lecturer and researcher Jouke Heringa was installed as guest professor at Shanghai Ocean University (China). Jouke got the official certificate from the Vice President of SOU in the presence of the Dean of  the Faculty. HZ has a strategic long term cooperation with SOU in the field of water management and aquaculture. Both parties have the intention to broaden their cooperation. Jouke also gave his first lecture today for the so-called ‘outstanding class’, a selection of 50 students from  the Environmental Science and  the Aquaculture program. 

Jouke will travel to China for one or two times per year to teach students about aquaculture and water management. Every year 5 to 10 Chinese students will study at HZ. At this moment, this cooperation is also being extendend to the bachelor programme Engineering. Hopefully, this will start in 2018.
