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)
- Netherlands Graduate Research School of Science, Technology and Mordern Culture (WTMC)

Understanding human-robot interaction critical in design of rehabilitation systems
Robotic body-weight support (BWS) devices can play a key role in helping people with neurological disorders to improve their walking. The team that developed the advanced body-weight support device RYSEN in 2018 has since gained more fundamental insight in BWS but also concludes that improvement in this field is necessary.

Now everyone can build battery-free electronic devices
Last year, computer engineers from Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) and Northwestern University introduced the world’s first battery-free Game Boy, which harvests both solar energy and the user’s kinetic energy from button mashing to power an unlimited lifetime of game play. The same team now introduces a new platform that enables makers, hobbyists and novice programmers to build their own battery-free electronic devices that run with intermittent, harvested energy.
