TU Delft student wins ECHO Award

Master’s student Architecture Emin Batman won the ECHO Award in the Beta Engineering category on Thursday, 7 December. According to the ECHO website (in Dutch), he “convinced the jury with his innovative vision in science and the way he looks for connection from the field of engineering.”

The ECHO Awards aim to make visible the social contributions of students from non-western backgrounds. Earlier this year, for example, Batman was active as an interpreter for rescue teams after the earthquake in Turkey. He also made a documentary in the area. In an interview with Delta, he said that through the documentary, he wants to give a voice to the people in the area. He also aims to prevent the disaster from disappearing from the agenda.

ECHO is a centre of expertise on diversity policy. Every year, they present their awards in several categories. The winners receive a catered summer course at the University of California (UCLA).
