Michiel Hogerheijde temporary programme director MSc Astronomy
Michiel Hogerheijde has been appointed temporary programme director of the Astronomy master's programme from 1 January to 1 September 2024. He takes over the duties of Harold Linnartz, who unexpectedly passed away at the end of December. Hogerheijde combines the position with his duties as programme director for the bachelor of astronomy.
Linnartz was programme director (OD) for the entire astronomy programme for five years. Since 1 October 2023, the position was split into a separate position for OD of the master's and bachelor's programmes. Hogerheijde has been OD for the bachelor's programme since then. Due to Linnartz's unexpected passing away on 31 December 2023, Hogerheijde temporarily takes on both positions.
