Duco Johannes Storm Buysing entered in 1818 the engineering school of Delft and from there moved in 1822 to the Waterstaat, the Dutch Ministry for water affairs. In 1834 he was promoted to engineer, lecturing hydraulic engineering in Medemblik at the Ijssel Sea. Shortly later, he moved to the Military School of Breda and there was decorated with the Dutch Lyon Order for outstanding services in 1842. Following the inauguration of the Delft Academy in 1845, Buysing moved there as the first professor in hydraulics and hydraulic engineering. He was awarded the title Court engineer in 1849 following successful educational and engineering works. Buysing left Delft University in 1862 to join the State of the Netherlands as a Minister of the Colonies. He was a founding member of the Dutch Royal Institute of Engineers in 1848, whose journal De Ingenieur was published from 1886 and still continues to be the prime Dutch engineering journal.

While staying at the Military Academy of Breda, Buysing published his two volumes on hydraulic engineering in 1844 and 1845. This work includes mainly plates of works undertaken in the 18th and during the early 19th centuries. Buysing, as later also Thomas Joannes Stieltjes (1819-1878), proposed a navigation canal from Rotterdam to the Sea, and a connection of Amsterdam to the North Sea. Buysing was a general engineer and a highly respected teacher both by students and professional colleagues. He was awarded Honorary Memberships of the Bataafsch Genootschap of Rotterdam in 1848 and of the Koninklijke Akademie van Wetenschappen, Amsterdam in 1851.
