Spirit of collaboration
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 the university community. We foster an open culture where everyone feels free to exchange ideas and take initiatives.
Personal attention and room for talent
Eindhoven University of Technology offers academic education that is driven by fundamental and applied research. Our educational philosophy is based on personal attention and room for individual ambitions and talents. Our research meets the highest international standards of quality. We push the limits of science, which puts us at the forefront of rapidly emerging areas of research.
Scientific curiosity with a hands-on mentality
Eindhoven University of Technology combines scientific curiosity with a hands-on mentality. Fundamental knowledge enables us to design solutions for the highly complex problems of today and tomorrow. We understand things by making them and we make things by understanding them.
Tu/e and Brainport: a thriving ecosystem
Our campus is in the centre of one of the most powerful technology hubs in the world: Brainport Eindhoven. Globally, we stand out when it comes to collaborating with advanced industries. Together with other institutions, we form a thriving ecosystem with one common aim – to improve quality of life through sustainable innovations.
TU/e places great importance on a number of core values. The scientific independence and integrity of scientific staff are key priorities. TU/e also highly values transparency and integrity in business relationships. As an organization, we regard it as important for staff and students to act with integrity in the areas of research, knowledge transfer and education. This is not self‑evident, and must be promoted actively. That is why at TU/e we commit ourselves to codes of conduct and regulations that provide guidance for working and studying at our university.
