Besides the board of Het Waterbouwdispuut a few committees are created to help by organizing the bigger activities. Below you will find a short description off the different committees. Do you want to be part of one of the committees? Change your preferences in my data or send an email to

Summer Study Tour

Every year the StuCo (Study tour Committee), a committee of Het Waterbouwdispuut, organizes a study tour for students of the Master Hydraulic Engineering at the Delft University of Technology. The study tour has a duration of about two weeks and always takes place during the summer holidays. The purpose of this tour is to give students the opportunity to get in touch with the practical side of their studies, to meet hydraulic orientated companies, and of course to learn from the different perspectives and visions on hydraulic related issues in foreign countries. The destination differs every year. In 2014 the study tour visited Indonesia. Locations of previous tours were: the USA (California & Nevada), China, Russia, Brazil and Indonesia.

Study Excursion

The MEX is the short trip abroad organized by the Waterbouwdispuut annually. The trip takes place in early December and lasts five days. In recent years we visited places like Venice, Gibraltar. Dublin, London and Edinburgh. The trips are a good mix of great excursions (to universities and hydraulic engineering projects) and fun.


Once a year a Symposium will be organised by Het Waterbouwdispuut. During a Symposium current problems in the hydraulic engineering world will be discussed by representatives of the business world and research institutes. They will share their vision and experiences in regard to the theme.
