Faculty presentation

2 Mission Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences
An international leading position in education and research in the fields of delta technology, watertechnology, mobility, construction and geo-energy

3 Our challenges bigger than ever Safety risks - delta Water supply
Mobility Energy Sustainable built environment Climate change

4 The Netherlands Flat low delta, precarious location,
best flood control system in the world. Several Dutch companies are involved in waterprojects. Conservation projects and land reclamation throughout the world Lowest altitude: 6.74 meter below sea level (near Rotterdam) Highest altitude: 323 meter (near Maastricht) Two main porst: airport Schiphol (the fourth largest airport in Europe) and seaport Rotterdam (the largest seaport in Europe)

5 Our Response Outstanding research groups
Outstanding launching customers Integral approach Delft Research Initiatives: Environment Infrastructures Energy Nationwide public-private cooperation Worldwide partnerships Investing in innovation

6 Our research groups Water Construction Earth Transport
