[Poetic Engineering]: 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.

  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.

The model is so far up and running, a nice overview is made of the situation inside the wards and the structural guys made an assessment tool for the outfall sluices. But besides work there was still time to finally see something of the vast rainforest of Guyana and the beautiful waterfalls. And we met a Dutchmen who traded his life in the Netherlands to work as consul for the Netherlands. 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.
