Vision of the board
The faculty of Civil Engineering at of the TU Delft is one of the
finest education programs in the field of Civil and Structural
Engineering in the world. It is without doubt that the students who have
finished their Master program on this faculty have learned valuable
skills and know-how to solve many technical and analytical problems.
However not every problem that a technical engineer will face will be
only solvable by the theoretical background that a student has studied
at this faculty. The complexity of projects and a general drive to more
efficiency requires engineers who are not only technically and
analytically well skilled. But engineers who are also dedicated to their
profession and who are able to come up with new creative solutions.
The U-dispuut stimulates relations and forms connections between:
students, the university and the construction industry. This is done by
organizing excursions to building sites, lunch lectures, symposia and
study tours as well by processing questionnaires about courses of the
master curriculum. These activities are instructive from a technical and
educational point of view and give our members an inside in the real
building and research industry. The connections which are made during
these activities help our members become more complete engineers who are
well aware of the current knowledge and methods but simultaneously more
able to come up with new creative solutions.
This year’s objectives
As the 27th board of this dispuut we step on a train which is already
running. In the past 26 year the U-dispuut is developed into a
professional organisation with good relations within the Building- and
Structural Engineering industry. However to stay relevant and
interesting for the involved parties the U-dispuut must always develop.
The developing will this year mainly be focused upon two things.
Firstly; considering the increasing demand both from students as from
companies to have more face-to-face contact and interaction, new ways of
cooperation’s with companies will be explored during this year.
Secondly; the added value of a good bond between a student association
and her alumni is without doubt, to improve this bond the U-dispuut will
explore the possibility for new events and activities during this year.
Of course there are more goals set for this year to get an overview of
all objectives; we invite you to read the policy plan, which can be
found at the U-hok, room 1.35, stevin II.
