TU Delft Student News

As of 26 November new filter checks links in email

Do you always check an URL in an email? Do you know what to look out for to see if an URL is reliable? Then it’s good to know that as of November some of these links will look different. At TU Delft we have increased the email protection. All email from external parties send to students (@tudelft.nl) goes through a filter to better protect against phishing, malware, viruses, imposter email, spoofing attacks, etc.

How does it work?

Because all links go through a filter to check it is secure, you will see “urldefense.proofpoint.com/…” instead of the real URL of the link when you hoover over it with your mouse. The link will still work and directs you to the original location. When the filter marks a link as suspicious, you will be directed to an information page instead. This way your @tudelft.nl addressed email is protected at all locations, on and off campus, and on all devices (pc, mac and mobile equipment) that you use.

If you want to copy a link and paste it in a different location, click on the link. In the browser, the original link will be visible. You can copy it there.

Why do we need email protection?

Phishing and email-based attacks have become an increasingly IT security problem, and the TU Delft community is attacked on a regular basis. The filter protects us against viruses, blocks or redirects spam, checks links and attachments. This is an automated process and does not monitor or read private email messages, so your privacy is guaranteed.

Climate Strike November 29th 2019

On November 29th 2019, a national ‘climate strike’ will be organized, as a follow-up to the climate strike of September 27th 2019.

TU Delft attaches great importance to climate action. In this regard, a vision paper was recently published on how we aim to harness our innovative powers to support the world-wide transition to non-fossil energy, and thus support the adaptation of the living environment to the consequences of global warming. In addition, we have signed the joint climate declaration of universities.

We realize this also raises expectations about our attitude towards ‘climate strikes’ as an employer and educational institution. In view of our institutional position on climate action, the approach of the Executive Board with regard to this “climate strike” is as follows:

  • As a technical-scientific institution, TU Delft endorses the general purpose of the demonstration;
  • We allow staff and students who request this to be present at this demonstration on November 29th;
  • Students and members of staff with teaching (or other) obligations are asked to discuss matters with their course supervisor / line manager in case they want to participate in the strike to assess how participation in the strike might impact on these obligations.

A big thank you from all of us @TU Delft 👌

A big thank you from all of us @TU Delft for completing the National Student Survey (Nationale Studenten Enquête)! The response was higher than last year, and on all subjects the score increased significantly compared to last year.

We are very happy since these results show your appreciation of our ongoing effort for your education.

Could we count on you again next year? A new version of the survey is expected early 2020 and you will be asked to complete it again. The results of this year. 

Start construction of the new education building Echo

Another education building is in the making. The construction of Echo will start November 11th and will take two years: at the start of the 2021-2022 academic year you will be able to follow courses in the brand new building!

The growing number of students in combination with the need for larger and more flexible educational spaces has led to the development of an additional educational building.

What do you notice about the work?
Although the work is noticeable, nuisance is limited as much as possible. During the exam period there are no noise causing activities. For example, a number of piles are drilled into the ground instead of being hammered. Furthermore, the accessibility of the area is guaranteed: with the exception of a few short road closures, for example for transport, you can access all roads.

Extra study places, sustainable and energy-neutral
Just like the Pulse education building, Echo will be used for all faculties and study programmes. A total of 1,700 teaching places and 360 study places will be provided here! The emphasis at Echo is on medium-sized and large education halls, varying from 64 to 700 people. Some rooms can be flexibly partitioned or merged. Echo also offers many opportunities to meet fellow students, with good catering facilities and longer opening hours. The design and layout of Echo meet high sustainability standards and the building will be energy-neutral. The area around Echo will become greener in the coming years, with more designated areas for pedestrians and cyclists.
