1 1 Civil Engineering and Geosciences Faculty presentation

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

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

4 4 Civil Engineering and Geosciences 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 5 Civil Engineering and Geosciences 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 6 Civil Engineering and Geosciences Our research groups Water Transport Construction Earth Resource Engineering Petroleum Engineering and Geosciences Geo-Engineering Structural and Building Engineering Material Science and Sustainable Construction Road and Railway Engineering Hydraulic Engineering and Sanitary Engineering Transportation Planning and Traffic Engineering
