News - 12 June 2018 - Communication

The Delft University of Technology is the largest and oldest Dutch public technical university, located in Delft, the Netherlands, providing technical education for the last 175 years. Known for its high quality of education and research, the university was ranked 3rd for the Architecture and the Built Environment subject and 4th for Civil Engineering subject in 2018. TU Delft being an internationally oriented university is reflected well in the MOR team, since its members are originated from more than 15 different countries. Across the campus, a large pool of talents contributes to the conception and implementation of technological solutions for actual environmental and social challenges, from the local to the global level. The university includes the faculties of Aerospace Engineering, Applied Sciences, Architecture and the Built Environment, Civil Engineering and Geosciences, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science, Industrial Design Engineering, Mechanical, Maritime and Materials engineering, as well as Technology, Policy and Management, most of which will contribute to this project.

The TU Delft is an open academic community which, through its students, scientific personnel and graduates, is represented throughout the academic world and is rooted in its own regional and national, social and economic environment. Currently, there is an abundance of research and development at TU Delft dealing with power generation, storage and novel solar technology. This body of work includes: the Nuon solar powered car project, the Solar boat project, development of cheap thin-film silicon solar cells with high efficiency, and other solar energy systems such as electricity generating windows. In collaboration with the Green Village and The New Makers, the MOR team has an important position in that technological ecosystem, linking these unique solutions together in a working net-positive housing unit.
