About TU Delft

In Greek mythology Prometheus, whose torch forms the TU Delft logo, was a titan who defied Zeus, the supreme god, to steal fire from Olympus and give it to mankind. It was an act that marked the beginning of man’s technological development.

In the spirit of Prometheus, TU Delft is an entrepreneurial university at the forefront of technological development. As such it is perpetually involved in furthering technological advancement in the interests of society. By means of its fundamental and applied research and educational programmes, TU Delft trains the engineers of tomorrow.

Established on 8th January 1842 by King Willem II, TU Delft has a rich tradition reaching back more than 160 years. Initially the university focused predominantly on civil engineering but gradually more and more engineering disciplines have appeared on the academic programme. Today TU Delft has eight faculties and it currently offers fifteen BSc and twenty-nine MSc programmes. With approximately 13,000 students and an academic staff of 2,100 (including 200 professors), TU Delft is the largest and most comprehensive university of engineering sciences in the Netherlands.
