A research school combines research with the education of researchers in a given scientific area. The school contributes to the national coordination of research programmes within specific disciplines, and it plays a particularly important role in providing the ‘third leg’ of the doctoral programme: professional skills.
TU Delft is the coordinating university of five research schools:
In addition, TU Delft participated in the following research schools:
- Casimir Research School
- Graduate School on 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 Insitute of Government (NIG)
- Research School Process Technology (OSPT)
- Dutch Research Scool of Philosophy (OZSW)
- Netherlands Research School for Information and Knowledge Systems (SIKS)

Dream Team Epoch in top three percent of worldwide biomass AI competition
Dream Team Epoch of the TU Delft has achieved remarkable success by securing 21st place in the Artificial Intelligence (AI) BioMassters competition, ranking them among the top 3% of the 976 international competitors. The students have created an AI algorithm that accurately predicts the biomass of a forest region in Finland using satellite images. These predictions play a crucial role in research on the global carbon cycle and the implementation of regulations concerning forest conservation and controlled forest fires. With their algorithm, Team Epoch is making a significant impact towards creating a more sustainable world through the power of AI.
