The Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) profiles itself as a leading international university specializing in engineering science & technology, contributing through excellent teaching and research to progress in the technical sciences, to the development of technological innovations and as a result to the growth of welfare and well being, both within its own region (technology & innovation hotspot Eindhoven) and beyond it.
Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) intends to be a research driven, design oriented university of technology at an international level, with the primary objective of providing young people with an academic education within the ‘engineering science & technology’ domain.
In the field of teaching, the TU/e regards it as its task to train engineers (at Master of Science level) possessing a sound scientific basis and depth of knowledge, as well as the necessary competences that will enable them to develop successful careers in a wide range of fields and functions within the community. The university also trains designers (at Professional Doctorate in Engineering level) and researchers (at Doctor of Philosophy level), as well as first degree teachers in the exact sciences (at Master of Science level). The Bachelor’s programs (BSc) are intended to serve as a basis for further education at Master’s level. In addition, the TU/e provides postacademic programs and courses through the TiasNimbas Business School.
In the research field, the TU/e prefers to focus within the ‘engineering science & technology’ domain on the specific areas in which it takes or can take a significant role in the international scientific world, and in which it can make meaningful contributions to the knowledge-intensive industries and other sectors of the community with a high, or rapidly developing, technology intensity.
In the field of knowledge valorization, the TU/e strives to ensure that its research results are translated into successful innovations and serve as a basis for the creation of new enterprises. It actively encourages students and staff to opt for entrepreneurship.
The quality of teaching and research must meet high international standards.
The TU/e offers its students and staff an international and academic, in other words intellectually stimulating, study and working environment that will inspire them to broadly based personal development, to social and cultural engagement and to an entrepreneurial attitude.
Together with Delft University of Technology and the University of Twente, the TU/e forms the ‘Federation of 3 Universities of Technology’, or ‘3TU.Federation’. The coordination and partnership within the Federation is intended to strengthen the competitive position and reputation of the Dutch universities of technology at a global level. Each of the three universities retains its own identity and profile within the Federation.
In brief, the TU/e profiles itself as the university Where Innovation Starts.
