Vice-Rector Magnificus Rob Mudde was impressed with the amount of interest in the Delft Global Student Club (DGSC). “It is great to see that the DGSC community already has over 200 members in just a few months.” Mudde was one of the speakers at the student club’s kick-off meeting, which took place at the Co Creation Centre at The Green Village on 8 March.


The DG Student Club is a new initiative of the Global Initiative programme which aims to bridge the gap between students and researchers through social and educational gatherings. It also offers internships and graduate positions for students.


The TU Delft Global Initiative’s goal is to make a scientific contribution to solving social issues. The Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations serve as a guiding principle, with a focus on Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia. Interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary solutions are developed in close cooperation with local partners.
