Education at W.S.G. Isaac Newton

Welcome to the education section of W.S.G. Isaac Newton. The goal of our association is to promote the interests of our students in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Twente, in both informal and educational areas.

We therefore offer a variety of services to our members. Before the start of the quarter, it is possible to purchase the books you need with a discount. This is for both the bachelor- and master courses.

We also provide numerous study-related activities such as project nights, informative lectures and evaluation meetings.

One board member is specifically responsible for improving the quality of education, this is the Commissioner of Educational Affairs, Veerle Schenkelaars. She is always open to questions or complaints.

You can find Veerle in the Newtonroom, by sending a WhatsApp message to the Newtonphone (0623463530) or by sending an email to:


Veerle Schenkelaars
Commissioner of Educational affairs

As a Newton member, you can borrow books from our collection. It is possible to borrow a book for one day, we only need your student card as a deposit. Want to borrow a book? Just go to the counter in the Newton room and ask one of our board members.

However there are several rules for borrowing a book, they are listed below.

1. The book(s) can only be borrowed when the Newton room is open (between 8:30 am and 5:00 pm.)

2. The book(s) have to be brought back before Newton closes (5 pm.)

4. You have to leave your student ID behind until you bring the book back.
