TU Delft’s mission is to make a significant contribution towards a sustainable society for the twenty-first century by conducting ground-breaking scientific and technological research which is acknowledged as world-class, by training scientists and engineers with a genuine commitment to society and by helping to translate knowledge into technological innovations and activity with both economic and social value.
Research at TU Delft encompasses virtually the entire spectrum of engineering sciences and it is this breadth that forms the basis for TU Delft’s strong scientific profile. The research questions we tackle are strongly inspired by important future challenges facing society.
TU Delft Excellence Scholarships are in line with our research-based initiatives such as Health, Energy, Globalization and Infrastructures & Mobility which are among the most important themes in today’s society. TU Delft aims to make an important scientific contribution to solving issues facing society that relate to these four themes, working from a thematic, multidisciplinary cooperation. Moreover, TU Delft is in the process of raising its international profile in several areas, some of them relatively new. This is to be achieved by clustering research capacity – either physically or virtually – in a number of university-wide institutes. This clustering of high-quality research capacity puts us in a better position to join national and international consortia and networks, and also makes us more attractive to top scientific talent.
Within the scope of the Excellence Scholarships, TU Delft also offers the Justus & Louise Van Effen Scholarships, financed by the legacy of Justus and Louise van Effen. Mr. van Effen studied at TU Delft in the 1940’s and strongly believed technological developments contribute to solving society’s issues.
The Foundation Justus & Louise van Effen was established with the aim of stimulating excellent international MSc students and financially supporting them in their wish to study at TU Delft.
