About

History

Eindhoven University of Technology is a young university, founded in 1956 by industry, local government and academia. Today, their spirit of collaboration is still at the heart of our university community. We foster an open culture where everyone feels free to exchange ideas and take initiatives.

Education

A university can only take on the challenge of educating the next generation of excellent engineers if it has excellent research and education capacity. TU/e excels at both, with numerous successful international research collaborations and educational innovation that puts you at the helm of your own career. 

In Bachelor College and Graduate School, students get more freedom to chart their own course than anywhere else. The best way to hone your creativity and to prepare for a career with societal impact is to seek out those subjects that ignite your interest. Of course, a solid scientific basis is not the only thing you can expect from a university education.

Research

TU/e is leading in the international research arena in the field of engineering science and technology. Our close collaboration with industry and healthcare institutes allows us to translate our research findings into products and services that help solve major societal problems, for instance in the areas of health, energy and mobility. 

Their first position for scientific output in collaboration with industry underscores the unique, close research & development relationship between TU/e and the high-tech companies in the surrounding Brainport area and the rest of the Netherlands.

Career

TU/e aims to be a welcoming, inspiring and challenging home for you as a student. But your relationship with TU/e does not end when you graduate. We want to be there for you throughout your career. 

Your Bachelor of Science or Master of Science diploma is, of course, a great foundation for a thriving career in industry. Studies show that companies and governments appreciate the skills and knowledge of TU/e graduates.

Eindhoven University of Technology is a challenging employer and provides space for talent. If someone is ambitious and performs well, they are given all the space and facilities to shape an interesting career. This includes opportunities to develop themselves.

Campus life

The green campus is becoming an attractive hotspot for students, researchers, entrepreneurs, investors and high-tech companies with state-of-the-art offline and online facilities. The campus is a terrain in development, but it is already a lively, green place in the city center of Eindhoven.

The TU/e Campus is not only a place of study and work, but also a home. Since the opening of the Aurora and Luna apartment blocks, hundreds of students and staff of different nationalities are resident here, turning our green campus in the heart of Eindhoven a lively and very dynamic place. A movie theater with a grand café/restaurant, a sports center and two supermarkets all contribute to a pleasant place to live and stay.
