Hydraulic Engineering

Welcome to the website of the Department of Hydraulic Engineering of the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences of Delft University of Technology.

Website Purpose

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.

Highlights

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.

Global mean sea level rise is accelerating faster than previously thought

Globally sea levels are on the rise. Now researchers from TU Delft and other European universities report a reconstruction of global mean sea level since 1902 that yields a slower average rise before 1990 than previously thought, but shows similar high rates as independent satellite observations from 1993-2012. This suggests that global mean sea level has been accelerating much faster than previously assumed in the past two decades. The results appear this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
