The Scheepsbouwkundig Gezelschap “William Froude” is the study association of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering at the Delft University of Technology. The association was founded on the 17th of November 1903 and has been involved in monitoring and improving the quality of the education. Next to this, organizing excursions, guest lectures, social activities and other means to support its members in their academic career has been an important part of its existence. The S.G. “William Froude” offers its members the opportunity to discover the many aspects, possibilities and developments of the maritime industry in the Netherlands and abroad.

Every Academic year, the association is led by a board of five members: President, Secretary, Treasurer, Commissioner of Education and Commissioner of Excursions. The board finds its support from the members in the form of committees organizing various events.

For any questions about the association, please feel free to contact us. You can find the contact information here
