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.
For engineering and technology studies, students in the Netherlands are best off in Eindhoven. This is evident from the Elsevier publication of Best Studies 2018. In addition, it appears that students in Eindhoven are particularly enthusiastic about their study at TU/e.
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.
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.
But perhaps you want to study some more before you set out on the labor market. Or perhaps you want to invest in ongoing education, even after your career has started to take off.
Apart from the university, around 100 companies and organisations are accommodated on the campus, from large research institutes to smaller start-ups. The TU/e campus wants to be a place where these parties connect and therefore offers various accommodation possibilities.
The TU/e Library provides access to an extensive collection of digital information resources via the Internet. In the library in MetaForum building a large printed collection is at your disposal.
The main subject areas are technical sciences, physics, chemistry, mathematics, computer science, industrial and management sciences, social sciences, architectural sciences, and industrial design.
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.
Sport is central in Eindhoven and at the university. The Student Sport Center Eindhoven(SSC) is the most extensive of all Dutch universities, offering all students and staff of TU/e, Fontys Hogescholen Eindhoven and Design Academy Eindhoven sport (70 sports), recreation, health and relaxation. Our sport cards, allowing you to participate in all sports and courses, are available at low rates.
At TU/e we have many flourishing communities of staff and students from the Netherlands and abroad. We value our open, healthy, informal and caring community in which we create an atmosphere that enables us to do our best. We encourage everyone, students and staff, to play an active part and be actively involved in this TU/e community, because we believe that when we are personal, passionate, curious and connected, our community is the place where innovation truly starts. Everybody is welcome, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, religion, age or cultural background.
