Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) is a research university specializing in engineering science & technology. Our education, research, and knowledge valorization contribute to:

  • science for society: solving the major societal issues and boosting prosperity and welfare by focusing on the Strategic Areas of Energy, Health, and Smart Mobility
  • science for industry: the development of technological innovation in cooperation with industry
  • science for science: progress in engineering sciences through excellence in key research cores and innovation in education

Excellent Education

We see it as our duty to train engineers to possess a sound scientific basis and scientific depth. They also have the necessary skills to successfully flourish in social sectors and functions. Bachelor College and Graduate School With a view to the future, TU/e has begun a major educational reform. The Bachelor's and Master's programs remain but are being incorporated in a Bachelor College and Graduate School respectively. Students will be given more freedom and can even choose to follow a broad-based program with society-oriented subjects or opt for a very specialized science program.

Advanced quality research

With advanced quality research, the university contributes to the progress of technical sciences and thus the development of technological innovations. We focus on areas in which we participate in the international scientific community. This can play an important role. The TU/e wants to give significant impetus to the knowledge-intensive industries and other social sectors with a high or rapidly evolving technology-intensity. This is validated by our rankings; we are the worldwide #1 research university in Industry collaboration and top 75 in Engineering & technology according to Times Higher Education rankings.

Knowledge Valorisation

The TU/e puts emphasis on knowledge valorization: research results are translated into successful innovations and serve as a basis for creating new products, processes, and enterprises. We encourage students and staff to opt for entrepreneurship.

Mission TU/e

With this profile, the TU/e profiles itself as a leading, international, in engineering science & technology specialized university. We offer excellent teaching and research and thereby contribute to the advancement of technical sciences and research to the developing of technological innovations and the growth of wealth and prosperity both in its own region (technology & innovation hotspot Eindhoven) and beyond. In short, the TU/e profiles itself as the university where innovation starts

Whether it is your cell phone, the security details for your bank card, the supply of products to shops, image processing in the medical field or a digital prototype for a car: none of these would exist without mathematics. You might not often even give it a thought, but mathematics is an essential part of our modern world.

That is why there is also a constant demand for versatile and widely deployable mathematicians, people who enjoy the challenge of solving problems and designing new products. Is being involved in creating the world of today and tomorrow something that appeals to you? Do you enjoy getting your teeth into a problem and do keep on searching for a solution until something has been solved? If so, our program in Applied Mathematics is the one for you.... [-]

The world from a different perspective

In the world to many special processes find us back instead. Sometimes these spectacular and clearly present, such as lightning discharges and tornadoes. But sometimes you have what are observant. Did you for example ever wondered why very hot objects will emit light (eg steel piping)? And it is you ever noticed that you both can see through a glass window as you can see a reflection. This remarkable things from nature are all the subject of physics.

Physicists are curious

Many people simply take these phenomena for what they are, but physicists are just curious and looking with different eyes to the world around them. For them, natural phenomena challenges, fascinating questions to investigate and unravel.... [-]

Look around you, at the house or neighborhood in which you live or the school you attend. Your surroundings are largely determined by the architecture and (civil) engineering. At T.U./e Architecture, Urbanism & Building Sciences doesn't just concern architecture but also urban development, constructional design, building physics, real estate and management and civil engineering. During your study you will discover what areas suits you best and then you can choose to specialize in that field.

The multidisciplinary bachelor Architecture, Urbanism & Building Sciences

The Architecture, Urbanism & Building Sciences major is a mix between theory and practice, between thinking and doing. You and your fellow students will learn about designing constructions, houses, offices, museums or even entire neighborhoods. In a multidisciplinary way, you will be learning about engineering, design and the building process.... [-]

Chemical Engineering and Chemistry plays an important role in solving societal problems. For instance, the development of cleaner forms of energy, new materials with highly specific properties like superstrong fibers, the design of new molecules capable of administering a certain dose of a drug in your body or converting light into electricity. There is always a great demand for well educated and trained chemical engineers.

What is Data Science?

Data Science is a new engineering discipline and the main driver for innovation in the years to come. Just like computer science emerged as a new discipline from mathematics when computers became available, we now see data science as a new discipline driven by the torrents of data available today. The data scientist will be the engineer of the future and scientific research and innovations will be data driven.

Data is collected about anything at any time, at any place. The ultimate goal is not to collect more data but to turn it into real value. Data can answer questions that have never been asked before. Visualization of data can really help discovering remarkable patterns that were never noticed before.... [-]

Electrical Engineering plays a role in everything involving electricity and magnetism. For instance, in the development of electrical motors for cars or the design of the very latest wireless chips for cell phones. Electrical Engineering is crucial in almost every modern technology: from reading information on a DVD to signal processing in medical equipment.

At T.U./e, for instance, we focus on wireless energy transfer. What does that mean for the future? Suppose the battery of your cell phone or tablet is always fully charged, then you won’t need a separate charger. And you can use your TV anywhere because you won’t have to plug it in!

Working on the future

Electrical Engineering is working on the future and this is evident in the field’s applications. This is why the study is geared to three societal themes that you become familiar with in the first year:... [-]

The games you play, the mobile phone you use to send text messages, the website where you do your online shopping. Technology is all around us and is an important part of our lives. Too important to just leave it to technologists.

In Psychology & Technology, you learn how technology influences people, and how you can use knowledge of psychology to let people use technology as effectively as possible. But you also learn how you can use psychology to design completely new technology applications such as motivational rehabilitation technology in healthcare, sociable robots or brain‑computer interfaces.

People and technology

Teaching staff and students of the Psychology & Technology program deal with a wide range of different subjects, all of which focus on the relationship between people and technology. For example:... [-]

In Sustainable Innovation you study innovations from a technological, economic and societal perspective, to enable society at large to consume and produce in a sustainable way.

The study doesn’t just look at the design of an electric car, for example, but at the design in combination with the required infrastructure (charging stations) as well as the development of the market, laws and regulations, and the broader effects on mobility patterns, urban planning and the climate.

This kind of design process always involves multiple actors such as government, industry, groups within society, knowledge institutes and consumers.

Society and technology

Students of the Sustainable Innovation program are trained to use technology to solve societal issues, to strengthen welfare and well-being in the world. Just a few examples are:... [-]
