A research school combines research with the education of researchers (PhD students and postdocs) in a strategic scientific area. The research schools also contribute to the national coordination of research programmes within specific disciplines.
TU Delft is the coordinating university for the following research schools:
- Advanced School for Computing & Imaging (ASCI)
- Research School Integral Design of Structures
- Casimir Research School (Casimir, Physics)
- Centre for Technical Geoscience (CTG)
- Delft Institute for Microsystems and Nanoelectronics (DIMES)
- Dutch Institute of Systems and Control (DISC)
- J.M. Burgerscentrum – Research School for Fluid Dynamics (JMBC)
- Transport Infrastructure and Logistics (TRAIL)
In addition, TU Delft participates in the following research schools:
- Research School for Engineering Mechanics (EM)
- Institute for Programming Research and Algorithmics (IPA)
- Netherlands Graduate School of Urban and Regional Research (NETHUR)
- Netherlands Institute for Catalysis Research (NIOK)
- Netherlands Institute of Government (NIG)
- Process Technology (OSPT)
- Netherlands Research School for Information and Knowledge Systems (SIKS)
- Thomas Stieltjes Institute for Mathematics (SIMATH)
- Netherlands Graduate School for Science, Technology and Modern Culture (WTMC)
- Integrated Biomedical Science and Engineering (IBME)
- Research School for Integrated Product Innovation (IPV)
- Polymers (PTN)
- Vening Meinesz Research School of Geodynamics (VMSG)
Graphene as a material for solar sails
A team of students, the GrapheneX-team, are preparing an experiment to test graphene in space-like zero-gravity, for potential future use as a light sail in space-craft propulsion.

Master students of TU Delft design objects from a fictional future “a la Black Mirror”.
Reflecting on various, sometimes dark, future scenarios through technology. That was the assignment for students of the master course Interactive Technology Design (ITD) at the TU Delft faculty of Industrial Design Engineering. On Wednesday afternoon, 5 July, the results will be shown during the Interactive Technology Design (ITD) exhibition at the faculty.
From DELTA: The science of screeching tires
Fast curves and burning rubber. Master vehicle engineering student (Faculty of 3mE), Conno Kuyt, has developed the first step towards a computer controlled slip system inside cars.
