TU Delft for Life

Being a Delft engineer is not something for the short run; it is something you are for life, something to be proud of! TU Delft alumni live and work all over the world. At many places there are local communities of TU Delft alumni that meet each other; some just once a year, some more frequently. These communities exist due to the help of local volunteers, and TU Delft supports them by organising or facilitating their activities.

These diverse activities and events are a great way to stay connected with your fellow alumni. Furthermore, there is also the possibility to keep digitally connected via the online platform TU Delft for Life. Visit the platform to find out about all opportunities TU Delft has on offer for its alumni.

What is DEAN?

Is the Dutch Engineers Alumni Network of TU Delft, UTwente, Wageningen University & Research and TU Eindhoven. It launched its activities in 2014 and now has active communities in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Nordics, Spain, Switzerland and the USA.

By combining forces we achieve the critical mass necessary for keeping in touch with alumni abroad. This is an important group which does a lot in return for our universities in the form of guest lectures, study advice, mentoring, collaboration in research or funding of projects.

Dutch Engineers Alumni Network (DEAN)

The Dutch Engineers Alumni Network of TU Delft, TU/e, Twente, and Wageningen launched its activities in 2014 and currently has communities in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Nordics, Spain and Switzerland. By bringing together the engineers that studied in the Netherlands, we hope to create valuable communities for our alumni. We encourage members to use these communities for sharing both achievements and information as well as tapping into the expertise of each other. 

Remember that alumni from TU Delft, TU/e, Wageningen University and the University of Twente are successful professionals who work across a wide range of sectors, and are affiliated not only with the most prestigious organisations of their fields but in many cases also self-funded start-ups. Some of them may have only recently completed their studies in the Netherlands while others have already lived in one of these countries for a decade or more. This network, therefore, represents a significant source of skills, contacts, and advice!

Please remember that all alumni are all also members of a much larger network of nearly 200,000 graduates from the four technical universities of the Netherlands which connects you to a rich legacy of innovation and excellence. Be proud and share your experiences at our institutions with other people. Alumni serve as important links for TU Delft, TU/e, Wageningen University and the University of Twente to the outside world so please contact us if you have any suggestions related to opportunities in research, education, or philanthropy.
