O, TU Delft Best Graduate 2016

Bauke Steenhuisen and Jeroen Manders created a special sonnet about all the nominees of the Best Graduate Award 2016.

O, TU Delft Best Graduate 2016

To win or almost win, that is the question.
Will Simone's turbulence and heat
transferring radiation outcompete
Tamara's understanding of depression's

hidden neurological causation?
Will Andrea's urban vision beat
the rest? Or is how Joeri got to read
the waves what makes the finest graduation?

Laparoscopy makes the coolest word
but modelling governance is probably
the hardest, for its softness. Things get blurred.

Could surfaces because they're wobbly
lose from how a cell works? It's absurd
exciting nonsense, and pure poetry.

More about the Best Graduate Award, won by Olaf van Campenhout, at the University Fund website.
