Hydraulic Engineering Drawing Studio

A shared space to study, the community and the chance to share experience with each other – these are the things that make up the Hydraulic Engineering Drawing Studio (WBZ – Wasserbauzeichensaal). Drawing studios at TU Graz are spaces provided by the university that are used and managed by student collectives. The WBZ is one of the oldest drawing studios of TU Graz. Over the decades, many civil engineers who were members of the WBZ have gone on to leading positions in research and business, around the world.

I felt right at home in the WBZ from the very beginning. Being able to study with other people is helping me make much better progress in my studies. It's important to us to make the studio a friendly and helpful place.
