Driven by societal challenges in strong collaboration with industry

Established in the 1950’s, Eindhoven University of Technology has always had strong values: optimism, collaboration and a dedication to society. These values helped Brainport Region Eindhoven flourish, and resulted in our university being ranked number 1 by Times Higher Education Ranking for collaboration with industry. 15% of TU/e's scientific publications are created in collaboration with industry, and we have the highest number of part-time professors from industry in the Netherlands.

TU/e's publications have high citation scores, consortia we are part of have won prestigious grants and our researchers receive scientific accolades on a regular basis. This distinguishing excellence is based on our three-pillar strategy: attracting talent, using a multidisciplinary approach and providing a stimulating research environment.

Societal challenges on Health, Energy and Smart Mobility are the driving force for our research. Research institutes such as Eindhoven Artificial Intelligence Systems Institute (EAISI) combine the strengths of our university with industry needs and government strategy. TU/e researchers play an important role in new products and companies in the Brainport area and all over the world.

The research of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science is of high quality. The development of innovative software and the art of mathematical modeling underlie technological and industrial progress. 

We are known internationally for our excellence and expertise in basic science & technology disciplines. We focus on developing methodologies, understanding complexity in all its shapes and sizes and enhancing system thinking in research as important prerequisites for interdisciplinary research. By combining our strong disciplines, we explore new emerging scientific areas and enable promising innovations in the light of societal challenges. Open science is our standard.
