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)

Student team from TU Delft wins international Synthetic Biology competition
Students from TU Delft have won the International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition in Boston. Earlier this week, the team presented their idea for a quick, on-site method to demonstrate antibiotic resistance in bacteria in dairy cattle. The test would allow a farmer to adjust the treatment if resistant bacteria is detected, and reduce the unnecessary usage of antibiotics.
Scanner for paintings turns out to be promising new CSI tool
In a special collaboration the TU Delft, the Rijksmuseum, the UvA en the NFI have introduced a new method for detecting ‘hard to find’ and concealed forensic traces. This work was officially published today in Nature’s open access journal Scientific Reports and is based on MA-XRF (i.e. scanning macro x-ray fluorescence spectroscopy) a technique originally developed for the elemental imaging of paintings and other works of art.
Tourism and travel make Paris targets unachievable
In the year 2100, the world's population will be flying nine times as many kilometres as in 2015, and the average travel distance for all tourist journeys is set to double over the same period. Aviation, 90% of which is tourism, will not be able to escape a severe reduction in growth, or even no growth, if we are to meet the climate targets. This conclusion is drawn by Paul Peeters, who will be awarded his PhD for his thesis on this subject at TU Delft on Wednesday 15 November.
