Delft University of Technology is committed to having significant, if not leading, impact regarding some of the most prominent challenges the world and our society are facing today. Rapid changes in technology are taking place, but in some areas the required changes are not occurring fast enough. Sometimes a revolution is needed rather than an evolution. This is why the Sector Plan funds of the Dutch government were established.

This Fundament magazine of TU Delft should be read in the framework of the Engineering part of the Sector Plans. The focus is on the technical disciplines agreed for the Engineering Sector Plan: Mechanical engineering and Aerospace, Electrical engineering and Civil engineering. Each discipline has chosen priority areas that have been aligned with other universities involved. Each story highlighted in this magazine shows both the corresponding discipline and its priority area.
