Hi! I’m Luuk Vonk and at the moment of writing this I’m 22 years old. I started studying Civil Engineering at the University of Twente in 2014. After I obtained my bachelors degree I started the Civil Engineering and Management Master with the focus on the River and Coastal Engineering track. My interest in water safety is only more feeded by the enourmous challenges that lie upon the Japanese. As an island state proun the tsunami’s but also highly populated and built cities the challenges they face are even more complex than here in The Netherlands.
Before I started the task of chairman of this committee I have also participated in the First Years committee, the Foreign European Trip committee and the Concrete Canoe Race committee. Although these committees gave me lots of pleasure, the current challenge is by far the most exciting. As chairman of the committee it’s my responsibility to coordinate the preparations of the study tour and keep everyone on track. I hope our combined effords will lead to an educational and joyfull trip to the beautiful country of Japan!
