Faculty Civil Engineering and Geosciences

The Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences of Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) provides leading international research and education, with innovation and sustainability as central themes. Research and education are closely interwoven and address societal challenges. The Faculty consists of 7 departments: Materials Mechanics Management, Engineering Structures, Geoscience and Engineering , Geoscience and Remote Sensing, Transport & Planning, Hydraulic Engineering and Watermanagement.

In the Department of Water Management research focuses on water treatment and transport and on understanding water availability and water use. The research strategy is to provide a scientific basis for technology development and decision-making in water-related issues such as water treatment, water transport, urban drainage, flood control, drought mitigation, water quality management and ecosystem management.

The Department has developed novel technologies, such as membrane processes, and measurement methods such as Distributed Temperature Sensing, new remote sensing data analysis methods and flexible modelling approaches for processes related to water availability, water use and discharge and water treatment. The Department uses a combination of refined laboratory methods and on-site testing to ensure the feasibility of new technologies and methods.
