End of the year BBQ and Hydraulic Engineering Road Trip

End of the year BBQ and Hydraulic Engineering Road Trip

Dear Hydraulic Students,

Now that everyone is working hard on their deadlines and their final exams of this year, it is a good moment to announce that there will be an event on July 1st to end the year and to usher in the summer break! First, we will have a Hydraulic Engineering Road Trip after which there will be a BBQ at the Delftse Hout! The road trip will start around noon and if you like,  it is possible to attend only one of the two events (road trip or bbq) but we of course recommend to be present at both.

For the road trip, we would like you to arrange your own car for you and the people with whom you would like to take the trip. Specially made Waterbouwdispuut mouth masks will be distributed by us at the start.

All corona-related measures that are issued by the government should be met. More information on corona-safety will be shared after closure of the applications.

If you like to attend the road trip, please send an email to me ( and if you like to attend the BBQ please fill in the following google forms: More information will follow but for now, make sure to put July 1st in your calendar.
