Welcome to the wonderful world of TU Delft. As of now you are an official member of our Delft academic community with a special mission: contributing to a better world. Of course, your study programme is not starting the way you had in mind when you enrolled. And yes, it takes some getting used to taking lots of online classes, especially if it's your first time studying at a university. So many obstacles to overcome, but the coronacrisis has once again shown us something: how incredibly valuable it is to be able to train you to become an engineer with an eye for social challenges who can contribute to their solution.
On 31 August you start on your journey: to travel the path to become Bachelors and Masters of Engineering. It will be a wondrous journey, but not an easy one. The work will be hard and the days can be lonely. But never forget: you are not alone. You are now part of our community. You will achieve knowledge and forge friendships for life. And if you are successful, you can join us on our greatest mission:
To create impact for a better society!
A first: this year's opening will be offered entirely online and in the form of a game. We cordially invite you to take part in the Opening Academic Year game so we can inaugurate the new year together.
The game will be available from 12.00 hours to 00.00 hours on 31 August. The goal of the game is to inspire you to get your study off to a flying start.
By playing the game you have a chance to win a great prize too: a limited edition Academic Year 2020-2021 TU Delft hoodie!
