To attract outstanding scientific talent, to conduct groundbreaking research and to train new generations of engineers, TU Delft is heavily dependent upon excellent but expensive research infrastructure. This is what makes it possible for us to test the real-life practicality of models simulated on computers, for example – something no other Dutch university is able to do on such a large scale and a defining factor of TU Delft’s profile in the international research landscape.
Unique research facilities
On its campus, TU Delft has a wide range of research facilities. These facilities are unique in the Netherlands and are used to conduct research for business and industry. They range from wind tunnels, a chip facility, high-voltage laboratory and nuclear reactor to serious gaming and product evaluation. Here are just a few of the unique research facilities TU Delft has at its disposal:
