- I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you for the fantastic work Michael Goodsite has delivered. He has made a great contribution, not just as Head of ITI but also in his always constructive collaborations with the other management groups at the Faculty of Engineering. I wish him many congratulations and look forward to maintaining a close working relationship in the future, says Dean Henrik Bindslev.
