Dear students and PhD researchers, We are very happy to welcome you to TU Delft, and take pride in the fact that you have chosen to study and carry out research at our university. We firmly believe you have made the right choice, not only for your educational and research ambitions, but for the rich and rewarding experiences that await you here. At TU Delft we take an international approach to research. We aim to find solutions to the problems facing society, now and in the future. In the 21st century, these problems centre on sustainability. How can we sustain an ever growing global population in a world where resources are becoming limited and harder to access? How can we stimulate economic growth in developing countries while limiting damage to the environment? We believe that health, energy, the environment and infrastructures & mobility are today’s major social issues. That’s why TU Delft puts particular emphasis on these four research domains. We need you to help find solutions to these global issues; together we can work to build a more sustainable society. As an MSc student or PhD researcher, you are therefore a valuable addition to our scientific community. We have plenty to offer you in return. At TU Delft, we provide a first-class scientific environment with outstanding research facilities and excellent education. Our university buildings are situated around the Mekelpark, the green heart of a dynamic campus. Just beyond the university district, you will find the lovely historic centre of Delft: a beautiful and prosperous city, where you can enjoy a rich cultural and social life in attractive and atmospheric surroundings. I realise that it is a big step to leave your home country and embark on a study programme abroad. No doubt, there will come a time when you will miss your own familiar surroundings and the people you love. So, in addition to studying, I advise you to take the opportunity to enjoy student life. Making time for sports, culture and friends will help you create your own temporary home here in the Netherlands. We will do our very best to help you build this new life. Things here might be different from what you are used to. The aim of this handbook is to provide useful and accurate information on the many facets of your study adventure abroad. Naturally, our staff and fellow students are ready and willing to assist you further. I wish you a rewarding time here at TU Delft; it is sure to be an experience you will never forget.
