We are a research-driven university of international standing, where excellent research and excellent education go hand in hand. We stand out when it comes to collaborating with advanced industries with a strong focus on the Brainport region. Our region is known for its excellence in high tech and is the heart of a powerful, innovation-driven industry. The engineers we educate are not only excellent engineers, but also strong communicators, who understand that users and society are to be taken into account when designing solutions and developing products. They are ready to face today's and tomorrow's highly complex (societal) challenges: the sustainability transition, technology revolution and the increasing impact of technology on our society.
