During the day, we will work in groups on cases related to real projects, in the subject of sustainable energy. We will have lunch there and finish the day with some drinks at around 17:00.

If you’re interested in getting to know Van Oord better and experience what kind of projects they work on, then sign up for the case by sending an e-mail to vice-voorzitter@waterbouwdispuut.nl. Don’t forget to include your CV and photo!

Hope to sea you there!

Swell Volume 40, Nr.2

In this edition of the Swell we are looking back at a very successful study trip to Dublin whilst also giving you a sneak preview about the upcoming events and trips. Also in this edition, an interview with Hydraulic Engineering student Focco Vons and an article about plastic free rivers. There are multiple hydraulic facts to be found and of course see if you can solve the hydraulic puzzles!

Company Case Royal HaskoningDHV

On Tuesday February 19th, Royal HaskoningDHV will host their annual Company Case for students of Het Waterbouwdispuut. The case will start at 10:30 at the RHDHV office in Rotterdam. During the day, you will work in groups on several cases taken from real projects, such as the Giant Sea Wall in Jakarta (see photo on the poster below). We will have lunch there and finish the day with some drinks at around 17:00.

Would you like to experience what it’s like to work at one of the Netherlands’ most well known engineering offices? And do you want to know what kind of projects keep them busy? Then sign up for the case by sending an e-mail to vice-voorzitter@waterbouwdispuut.nl and don’t forget to include your CV!

Study Tour 2019: Brazil

The registration for the Hydraulic Study trip of this summer has closed. From the 8th until the 22nd of July 2019, we will be travelling with a group of twenty students to… Brazil! We will be travelling in the surroundings of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. We are planning to see some of the most impressive hydraulic masterpieces in the world, like the Itaipu Dam and the Port in Rio de Janeiro. During the trip, we will vary the hydraulic activities (company visits and excursions) with many other activities, so that it will still feel like two weeks of holidays. Brazil is one of the most beautiful countries in the world and occupies almost half of South America, so it will not disappoint!

For the lucky ones that have managed to get a spot on this trip, you can always email buitenland@waterbouwdispuut.nl or stop by 3.72 if you have any questions.

Company Case MTBS

On Wednesday the 12th of December a group of enthusiastic Hydraulic Engineering students visited MTBS at their office located at the old port in Rotterdam. MTBS, Maritime & Transport Business Solutions, prepared an interesting real life port development case for us and after a short introduction about MTBS we spend the afternoon looking at the various subjects of this case. The afternoon ended with short presentations and a nice tour of the office. And of course some casual drinks, where the students were able to ask their remaining questions. We would like to thank Dirk and Ernst from MTBS for the fun and exciting afternoon!


Swell Volume 40, Nr.1

In this edition of the Swell you will find an overview of the past events, including a great article about the Summer Trip to China and a very first edition of Tjerk Constructions. Don’t forget to try and solve the Hydraulic Puzzle and find out about this years Waterbouwdispuut board members.

Master Kick Off

It’s always exciting to start something new, just as starting as a freshman at the university with a new study: the master hydraulic engineering. To meet your fellow student the master kick off was organised. The day started with some useful information for your study, followed by four different excursions. The day ended with a nice barbeque behind the civil engineering building. Now everybody was ready to start with the masters!

Excursion Witteveen+Bos, Levvel & Deltares

Here we took a close look at the Delta Flume, equipped with the largest wave generator in the world. The 300-metre-long concrete flume hosts waves of up to 4.5 metres high.  Currently, the new level-blocks are tested there.

Excursion Rotterdamsebaan

With a part of the group we visited the Rotterdamsebaan at the Laan van Hoornwijck. After an interesting and quite technical presentation we got a guided tour around the site. We got to explore the inside of the first tunnel, which had just finished building, and we saw how the drilling machine was being installed for the start of the second tunnel. 

Excursion Maeslantkering

With most of the international students of Hydraulic Engineering, we went to visit the Maeslantkering; one of the showpieces of the Deltaplan. The excursion was introduced by an lecture of Mark Voorendt, afterwhich we went to the Maeslantkering. After the walk-around, we build our own flooddefefences as real hydraulic engineers.

Excursion HKV

At HKV we got an presentation about the BRIGAID project which supports innovations that reduce the impact of floods, drought and extreme weather. To actually witness one of these innovations we went to Flood Proof Holland where a prototype of a titling road flood defence was demonstrated.

Lunch Lecture BAM International

On Wednesday 14 of November, the managing director of BAM International, Wouter Remmelts, came to TU Delft to give a lunch lecture to hydraulic engineering students. It was a very interesting lunch lecture and we would like to thank Wouter Remmelts and Julian Odio Pozuelo, a recent graduate from the TU Delft, for their enthusiastic presentations.
