Opening Lecture

The Bouwkunde Bedrijvendagen will kick off with the Opening Lecture. Each year we invite an interesting speaker, who is active in the built environment, to give a lecture about his/her projects. We look for interesting and recent projects that spark the interest.

We proudly announce that the opening lecture of this year will be given by the architect of the year 2018: Floris Alkemade! He has a broad experience in the field of architecture and is currently working as Chief Government Architect. This means that Alkemade is e.g. responsible for the urban development on national scale. The subject of the lecture is to be announced, but with his positivism and knowledge about architecture and urbanism he will absolutely give an unforgettable lunch lecture. Feel free to join this experience on the 12th of November from 12:30 till 13:30. Of course a free lunch will be included.

 

Career Event

The highlight of the Bouwkunde Bedrijvendagen is the Career Event. 45 companies, working in the built environment, attend this year’s event. The companies at the market focus on the different mastertracks at the university, allowing students to ask specific questions about their tracks. All these companies will convert Plaza (Vertigo floor 1) into a busy event where contact with your future employer has never been so easy.

The career market of Bouwkunde Bedrijvendagen 2019 will take place 20th November!

Cases

Due to the great success of last year, the cases will be organized again this year! They will take place on the 13th of November from 13.30h until 15.30h. In total three different cases will be given in the different directions of the built environment. During the cases you will be able to get a glimpse of what the real world look like. The three different cases will be given by Royal BAM Group nv (B), Royal HaskoningDHV (A) and abcnova (U).

Royal BAM Group nv: The case given by the professionals from BAM will be about the Zalmhaventoren located in Rotterdam. This is a 215 meter high tower with a lot of interesting challenges concerning building physics and the construction.

Royal HaskoningDHV: Using parametric modeling is becoming more and more popular in the built environment. On the basis of data concerning relations between different components a design can be created. In this case insight will be given into the use of parametric modeling.

abcnova: In 2018 the Hembrugarea (33 hectares) was sold to a real estate project developer. The plot contains 70 buildings of which 35 have a monumental status. The goal is to develop a sustainable urban area containing both new-built homes, as well as the exploitation of the existing (monumental) buildings.

The Walking Dinner

The Walking Dinner is a way to get in touch with companies in a more casual manner. During the Walking Dinner a small group of students and a company representative will enjoy six courses at the Zwarte Doos. Here students get the chance to talk with companies in small groups. Throughout the evening, between the courses, students will change tables in order to get to know the different companies in the tracks. Students have the opportunity to be invited for the 1-on-1 interviews by the representative. This evening costs 7.5o euros for students.
