Remon Rooij is an Associate Professor at the Department of Urbanism. He is the TU Delft CDIO leader and the TU Delft co-leader of the 4TU Centre for Engineering Education. Remon is a passionate lecturer, coach, course and curriculum designer, education innovator, and researcher in engineering education. Remon has over 25 years of experience in teaching and coordinating a large variety of design and planning courses and programs within the faculty of Architecture & the Built Environment. He is particularly interested in engaging engineering pedagogies that stimulate the intrinsic motivation of students (such as design education, CBL, and inter- and transdisciplinary learning environments) and the kind of academic and professional skills that come with these.

Advancing university teaching and educational careers
Many changes are taking place within university education, and there are specific developments in the field of engineering education. These changes require changing roles and competencies of university teachers and more opportunities for teaching specialisation.
Design studio pedagogies
The studio is a pivotal pedagogical setting for teaching and learning to design in the faculties of IDE and ABE. But how do different studios define their focus and approach?
To ensure sustainable and resilient innovation in engineering education, we need a coherent planning and evaluation strategy.
INSIGHT - Academic skills for architects
Architecture (‘Bouwkunde’) is an engineering science that focuses on solving socio-spatial-technical issues in the built environment. Together with many faculty colleagues, we clarify academic skills for architects (‘bouwkundigen’).
Seminar Research on Education Innovation
In the academic year ’20-’21 this seminar brings together the Architecture and the Built Environmen faculty staff to present and further discuss education experiences.
State of education of four key engineering approaches at the TU Delft
The 4TU.CEE strategic agenda of 2022-2025 prioritizes the following engineering education themes: Digital skills & computational thinking, Ethics & responsible engineering, Challenge-based education, and Entrepreneurial engineering education.
Study stress in design education
Design education too often goes together with over-aroused students and (over)ambitious teachers, leading to higher levels of student stress. We aim to better understand study stress in design education, directly contributing to TUD agenda on study climate and student well-being.
Train the Trainer Program in Entrepreneurial Engineering
Train the Trainer program in Entrepreneurial Engineering creates a learning hub for engineering lecturers who are interested in bringing entrepreneurship and innovation theory and knowledge into their regular engineering courses.
