TU Delft | The Hague
Many of the societal challenges in the 21st century, such as climate adaptation and energy transition, strongly depend on technological innovations. TU Delft considers it its social responsibility to bring state-of-the-art engineering knowledge closer to the world of policy-making. The objective of this effort is to contribute to better informed policy making and implementation.
TU Delft | The Hague is a university-wide programme that aims at building stronger networks with key stakeholders, both in the national politics in the Netherlands, but also important international organizations present in The Hague. The focus of this program lies with three main themes, inspired by the current societal challenges: (1) climate & energy, (2) digitalization and (3) safety & security. TU Delft | The Hague brings knowledge and expertise from all TU Delft faculties around these cross-cutting themes, working towards optimal matches between stakeholder needs and researchers’ expertise, related to these themes. Intensified cooperation with our academic partners in higher education is another aim of this effort. TU Delft | The Hague aims at responsible development and implementation of technological solutions for the challenges of the 21st century
In order to facilitate this, we will work towards a stronger presence and a growing number of activities in The Hague. Our campus in The Hague will be a thriving and inspiring place for our students, researchers as well as for practitioners to meet and to exchange knowledge and expertise. Our master Engineering & Policy Analysis (EPA) serves as a best practice that has already led to many inspiring collaborations with our stakeholders in The Hague. Building on this basis, TU Delft has set to develop a university-wide perspective on strategic cooperation with national and international presence in The Hague.
We look forward to welcoming you at our campus in The Hague!

TU Delft in The Hague
Any degree programmes taught in The Hague will still be true Delft programmes. “It will not become a Hague programme. Think of it as Delft meets The Hague: Delft will capitalise on the opportunities offered by The Hague and will give something in return in the shape of its students and staff. It's important that the students on our Hague campus feel connected with TU Delft. We will encourage this by organising activities on campus and appointing supervisors from Delft, for example. After all, most students prefer to graduate from TU Delft.
The importance of place
“Despite the increasingly global nature of the world we live in, the importance of place is still critical,” explains De Bruijn. “The location of a university is not trivial. A lot of important international institutions are based in and around The Hague, including the Peace Palace and internationally oriented government planning offices. Operating within the same square kilometre will give EPA a side-door to high-powered politics and law. Add an innovative staff and innovative students to the mix and watch the synergy develop!”
You can see the practical side everywhere you look, which means that we can concentrate on theory as well as practice. There are countless opportunities for new, exciting, teaching formats. Take the real-life cases coming directly from the work floor, supervision from professionals in the field or topical interest lectures. We can also bring simulation and gaming activities with us to The Hague and our brilliant, internationally oriented students can take part in think tanks, or get involved in (or even organise) social debates.
