Intern Cabin, Avionics and Airworthiness

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines

For KLM I developed a new SharePoint site for the Airworthiness office. The site's primary function is to provide the aircraft engineers of KLM with the knowledge provided by the Airworthiness Office to prove their proposed design changes are in compliance with the Airworthiness laws of EASA (Part-21), the FAA and other legislative bodies. A huge part of this project was to be a pioneer in Office 365 and think of a governance plan for this tool which was not introduced to the unit yet. Also, search capabilities, meta-tagging and taxonomy creation were important keywords of this project.

Utrecht University

Information Sciences (BSc)
Information sciences focusses on the link between human and computer. Although techical courses like C# programming and database engineering are given, the focus is on the appliance of technology in all its forms in organisations and public spaces. In my study, I focus on organisational use of IT; with subjects like Organisations and ICT, Product software, Law and informatics and Information systems. I also have a perticular interest in developing information systems; from requirement analysis all the way up to deployment.
