Height Control Engineer

Mail: roan.vandervoort@solarboatteam.nl  

I have always loved boats and sailing. The Solar Boat Team offers me an opportunity to design, build and race a boat in just one year. IT provides unique challenges which aren’t ordinarily encountered in a study, thereby gaining valuable new skills and knowledge.  

I am a highly motivated second year aerospace engineering student who is detail focussed. I love learning and enjoy figuring out complex systems. In addition I enjoy programming and often like to employ it to solve problems for me or make life easier in general.

As height control engineer in the electronics department, I make sure our boat can fly above the water at the correct height. I am highly motivated to learn more about this subject and look forward to the upcoming year!
