U-BASE is an abbreviation for “United Building and Structural Engineering Association” and it is the student association for master students Building- and Structural Engineering at the Civil Engineering faculty of the Delft University of Technology. U-BASE was established in September 2015 and was the result of a merge between three former MSc study associations, namely: U-dispuut, CST-dispuut and Betondispuut. At U-BASE we aim to make your time as an MSc student unforgettable. We are here to bring you in contact with your fellow students so that studying is easier, but mainly so you will make a whole lot of new friends. Also bringing students and teachers closer together and improving education is one of our goals. And finally bringing students and companies together for future job opportunities is important to us.
We offer our members a wide range of activities throughout the year. To bring students and companies together we organize excursions, lunch lectures and a yearly recruitment dinner. U-BASE also organised social activities throughout the year, a short U-BASE trip in fall and an international trip during summer break. In order to bring students and teachers closer together, we organise Coffee and Cake Breaks where they can exchange information about courses, exams, graduation or research. Also, course evaluation and improvement are one of our core activities regarding education.
There are 7 committees students may be a part of the Action Committee, Concrete Canoe Race Committee, Education Committee, Media Committee, Study Tour Committee, Value of Design Symposium Committee and U-Profiel Magazine Committee.
Our office (called 'BASE') can be found in the Stevinlab II in the Civil Engineering faculty. Here students can relax between lectures and they can meet up with their fellow students. Upcoming events and company information are also shared here. Our door is always open for students, teachers and companies to come by for a visit.
