Opening Academic Year

6 September 2021

Never let it be said that to dream is a waste of one's time, for dreams are our realities in waiting. In dreams, we plant the seeds of our future.

Everything starts with a dream. A vision. A grand ambition. At TU Delft, we're not just dreamers, we're go-getters. Dream catchers. We make our dreams come true by reverse engineering them. We use technology to translate our dreams into practical solutions. Our dream is to create impact for a better society, and we chase this dream together. Will you join that dream?

At TU Delft we have some grand dreamers. Dreamers who do not stop there, but transform their dreams into action: into finding new answers or creating new technology. They look for the sweet spot between ambition and realism, between vision and feasibility – but they never lose their dream out of sight. After all, if feasibility had been the starting point we wouldn’t have space missions today. 

If the past eighteen months had been a dream, it would have been a nightmare. But while our lives were turned upside down, we never stopped dreaming. About everything we miss and will be able to do again after corona. About how we will learn from this crisis and try to avoid the next one. And about all the things we will invent and build, even though they may still seem unfeasible.

But to build the dream, you have to work together. Together we are stronger and more resilient. Together we can reach our common goals. Together we form a powerful community where we work to create impact for a better society. Together we build our dream for the future.

We cordially invite you to attend the Opening Academic Year on 6 September 2021.
