Prof. dr. B. Jayawardhana - Faculty of Science and Engineering
Bayu Jayawardhana (Bandung, 1978) is Associate Professor in Mechatronics and Non-linear Control Technology at research institute ENTEG. This research group offers interdisciplinary teaching; a mix of technical sciences, Management, Computer Science and Mathematics. He was involved in setting up a joint degree programme with the prestigious Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB University) in Indonesia.
Jayawardhana is an enthusiastic and dedicated lecturer. He thinks it is very important that students become aware that they are privileged and should therefore make the most of their time at university. To stimulate the learning process of the students, he tries to engage them in reflection, posing questions throughout the lectures and allowing them the time to answer individually. They also receive small presents as rewards, such as origami animals made from tea bag wrappers.
Jayawardhana makes difficult concepts easy to follow and interesting. He motivates his students by scheduling an interim exam, helping them to keep up with their work and offering them feedback during the course unit. He is also renowned for his fun use of technology and trying new things, like sound fragments in PowerPoint presentations and quizzes.
