After working as an engineering consultant in the Oil&Gas industry for 6+ years, Luuk became head of production at EngineeringTrainer where he realizes high-end online courses for engineering professionals. He holds a masters degree in Applied Physics from the Eindhoven University of Technology. As an engineer, Luuk worked on a multitude of projects related to Pipe Stress Engineering for both static and dynamic loading conditions, Transient Flow-calculations (surge/water hammer), the design, installation supervision and quality inspection of Fiberglass Reinforced Piping (FRP) systems and Finite Element Analysis of heat exchangers and pressure vessels. During these years Luuk quickly became a trainer on the topics of EN13480, EN13445, CaesarII, FRP Engineering and more.
Luuk's background in engineering combined with his passion for teaching enables you to get the most out of his courses
