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)
TU Delft spin-off Atmos UAV presents mapping drone
On 23 May 2017, the TU Delft spin-off Atmos UAV presented Marlyn, a hybrid drone that combines the flexibility of a helicopter with the speed and range of a fixed-wing aircraft. This device can rapidly map large areas of ground for companies working in such fields as fields construction, mining, agriculture and forestry.
Global mean sea level rise is accelerating faster than previously thought
Globally sea levels are on the rise. Now researchers from TU Delft and other European universities report a reconstruction of global mean sea level since 1902 that yields a slower average rise before 1990 than previously thought, but shows similar high rates as independent satellite observations from 1993-2012. This suggests that global mean sea level has been accelerating much faster than previously assumed in the past two decades. The results appear this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
Successful conference Social Innovation and the Energy Transition
At 3 and 4 April engineers, policy makers, administrators and scientists presented – and discussed – dilemmas and issues such as: Can social innovation boost a technological energy innovation, or conversely, act as an obstacle? What can students do to accelerate the energy transition? What will the Dutch energy situation look like in 2050? Who will be the energy transition winners and losers?

Demonstration of the Netherlands' smallest supercomputer at TU Delft Institute for Computational Science and Engineering kick-off event
The Little Green Machine II is a supercomputer with the computing power of 10,000 PCs, the size of four pizza boxes and electricity consumption just 1% of that of a comparable large supercomputer. At the kick-off event for the TU Delft Institute for Computational Science and Engineering (DCSE) on Tuesday 23 May, project manager Simon Portegies Zwart (Leiden University) will give a demonstration of this small-scale computing miracle.
