April 26, 2012

Thornton Tomasetti, the international engineering firm, announces that Tanya de Hoog, BEng, MSt, CEng, MIStructE, a principal and founding co-director of the firm’s London office, has been appointed a Royal Academy of Engineering Visiting Teaching Fellow in the Interdisciplinary Design for the Built Environment (IDBE) masters course at the University of Cambridge.

Key Points

• Administered by Cambridge’s engineering and architecture departments, the IDBE master’s program examines the innovations and major challenges impacting the built environment.

• The Royal Academy of Engineering, which aims to provide educational programs for young engineers, approached Cambridge with interest in establishing an IDBE program at the University. Ms. de Hoog, a graduate of the IDBE program, was nominated by University course leaders for the fellowship.

• As a Royal Academy of Engineering Visiting Teaching Fellow, Ms. de Hoog will present lectures, mentor students, supervise assignments and review studio design projects. Her most recent lecture included a discussion on industry trends, the impact of the recession on AEC business, and highlighted relevant Thornton Tomasetti projects.

• Students from UK and abroad with at least three years of professional experience in sectors including architecture, engineering, planning, landscape and urban design, building economics and client advisors are invited to study with the program.
