Internationally prominent research

TU/e’s research is internationally prominent. The European Union ranked TU/e third (after the universities of Cambridge and Oxford) in terms of publications in scientific journals. Eindhoven researchers and research programs achieve high scores in international research assessments.

Largest scientific output
Of the 350 best performing research universities around the world TU/e creates relatively the largest scientific output in cooperation with industry according to the ranking by the Leiden Center for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS). This position confirms the unique, close R&D cooperation between TU/e and the high-tech industry in Brainport Eindhoven and the rest of the Netherlands.

Health, energy and mobility
TU/e leads from the front as an international research university in engineering science and technology. Through close cooperation with industry and the healthcare sector we translate our research results into innovative products and services, especially in the fields of health, energy and mobility.

Modern research equipment

The Eindhoven researchers have modern and unique research equipment and laboratories at their disposal. Many departments, for instance, use the ultramodern large cleanroom on the campus. TU/e also sets the tone in the Netherlands with the Dutch Polymer Institute, the Embedded Systems Institute and, recently, participation in the Center for Translational Molecular Medicine as well as being an active participant in the Holst Center recently established by Philips, IMEC and TNO for autonomous wireless systems and systems-in-foil. Together with industry and government in the region TU/e continues to cooperate in a whole range of projects to strengthen the economic structure. Links with Philips Research in particular are close. More than 20 percent of researchers working at Philips Research all over the world were educated at TU/e.
