Technical University DelftDelft University of Technology (TUD) is the biggest technical university in the Netherlands. It emerged from the ‘Royal Academy for the education of civilian engineers for serving both the nation and the industry, which was founded in Delft on 8 January 1842 by King William II. TU Delft provides top-level technical and scientific education in a great number of disciplines. Both the scientific and business communities internationally respect the research conducted by TU Delft. TU Delft has seven faculties and sixteen programmes of study, two part-time programmes, and a host of post-graduate courses. It accommodates approximately 13,000 undergraduate students, 1,400 MSc students and 400 PhD students. There are over 2,100 scientists working at TU Delft, including 200 professors.

Annually, it leads to an average of 185 dissertations and over 3,350 scientific publications.

The Civil Engineering sub-faculty of the TU Delft, which will participate in this project, is the only Civil Engineering Faculty in the Netherlands. It has many departments and sections, covering all civil engineering disciplines, as well as Graduate schools and Research Institutes. Renowned for its high standard of education and research, the University collaborates with other educational establishments and research institutes, both in the Netherlands and overseas. It also enjoys partnerships with governments, branch organisations, numerous consultancies, the industry, and companies from the small and medium business sectors.
