Technische Universiteit Delft
Delft University of Technology (the TU Delft) is a multifaceted institution offering education and carrying out research in the technical sciences at an internationally recognised level. Education, research and design are strongly oriented towards applicability. The TU Delft develops technologies for future generations, focusing on sustainability, safety and economic vitality. At the TU Delft you will work in an environment where technical sciences and society converge. The TU Delft comprises eight faculties, unique laboratories, research institutes and schools.
Civil Engineering & Geosciences
The Department of Water Management focuses on quantitative and qualitative aspects of fresh and salt/brackish water systems and related user functions, such as building, drinking water, wastewater and agriculture. Delft is a global centre for hydrological research and education, resulting from the necessity of excellent water management in the Netherlands. Within Delft, we cooperate closely with Deltares, UNESCO-IHE, and consulting firms.
The Water Resources Engineering section has an excellent international research reputation and is very well embedded in both the national and international research community and networks such as IAHS, AGU, and EGU. A significant part of the research is done in strong collaboration with national and international research institutes and industry. There is active interaction and cooperation with other relevant disciplines, particularly in the areas of new observation techniques (satellites, in situ, citizen science) and advanced mathematical techniques, such as data assimilation.
