Delft University of Technology (Dutch: Technische Universiteit Delft) also known as TU Delft, is the largest and oldest Dutch public technological university, located in Delft, Netherlands. It counts as one of the best universities for engineering and technology worldwide, typically seen within the top 20. It is repeatedly considered the best university of technology in the Netherlands.
With eight faculties and numerous research institutes, it hosts over 19,000 students (undergraduate and postgraduate), more than 2,900 scientists, and more than 2,100 support and management staff.
This programme is based around three streams of modules. A hands-on project-based stream entitled Delivering Urban Change is designed to allow you to put into practice the knowledge gained through two other streams, Understanding Urban Change and Managing Urban Change.
The programme offers the opportunity to study overseas for one term in the second year as part of the degree. The school has long-established links with many universities in Europe including Spain, Germany and the Netherlands as well as a growing list in the USA and the Asia-Pacific including universities in Hong Kong and in Melbourne.
In addition to core modules shared between all our three programmes, the programme offers specialist modules in rural planning (Beyond Cities), Urban Form, Urban Design, Regeneration, Transport Policy and Planning.
