They see it as their duty to train engineers to possess a sound scientific basis and scientific depth. The engineers 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. They 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.
The TU/e puts emphasis on knowledge valorisation: research results are translated into successful innovations and serve as a basis for creating new products, processes and enterprises. They encourage students and staff to opt for entrepreneurship.
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.
