We have designed this website to inform and facilitate current students, prospective students, alumni, scientists, practitioners, media, colleagues and our staff on our field of focus. Our homepage offers access to section-related information that we control and update, to our direct "Delft" environment and it offers a login to our staff.
Of the vast amount of information that you may find we mention the highlights. Under news you will find recent and aged articles, while agenda provides the most recent activities and events of our department. Under research you will find current and recently completed research project descriptions often with access to publications. Under education you will find information for high school students, university of applied science students (pre-masters), foreign students, bachelor students (master programs) and master students (graduation projects and reports). Also all the hydraulic engineering courses are given here.
To contact persons within our department or other department related matters various members of the departmental support can be contacted. What is more, contact and accessibility will give more general information to find us. Please take a look at vacancies when you are looking for a job or when you want to do research in hydraulic engineering.
We offer access to the Virtual Knowledge Centre - Hydraulic Engineering, designed for anyone who is active in the field. Many links on this portal points to the central library of Delft University of Technology. The aims of the knowledge center are (1) to provide integrated access to library and faculty information resources per subject and (2) to facilitate sharing of the knowledge contained within the user group through use of discussion forums. The primary target users are students and staff of Civil Engineering.
SEAWAD team researches Wadden Island development
How will the coast of the Wadden Islands change in the future, and what can be done to protect it? To answer this question, researchers from TU Delft will embark on a month-long field measurement campaign in Ameland, the Netherlands.
Han Vrijlings laatste drie promovendi promoveerden deze maand
Toen waterbouwhoogleraar Han Vrijling aan de Deltawerken werkte, stonden waterbouwkundigen voor de maat der dingen. De huidige generatie heeft te maken met ecologische waarden en mondige burgers, Vrijlings laatste drie promovendi verdedigen deze maand hun proefschrift.
Two new stories of science
Two new stories of science have been posted on the Hydraulic engineering website. This time, Caroline Katsman talks about her research about the influence of ocean whirls on surface water sinking. Also Victor Chavarrias talks about his research about meandering and “humanised” rivers in the world.
