TU Delft’s mission is to make a significant contribution towards a sustainable society for the twenty-first century. This is done by conducting groundbreaking scientific and technological research, which is acknowledged as world-class; by training scientists and engineers with a genuine commitment to society; and by helping to translate knowledge into technological innovations with both economic and social value.

Department of Biotechnology

The Department of Biotechnology engages in internationally leading, groundbreaking research and education programs in industrial and environmental biotechnology. The Department of Biotechnology covers the fields of biocatalysis, bioprocess engineering, cell systems engineering, environmental biotechnology, industrial microbiology, and biotechnology and society, thereby combining fundamental research, engineering, and design. These fields are all directed towards biotechnological process innovations.


The Department of Bionanoscience (BN) focuses on the fundamental understanding of biological processes, from the level of single molecules to the full complexity of living cells. This research provides a fascinating insight into the molecular mechanisms that lead to cellular function. The department features a strongly multidisciplinary and international team of scientists, whose research areas include single-molecule biophysics, synthetic biology, as well as (quantitative) cell biology. BN has provided our team with laboratory space, supplies and an exceptional supervisory team.

Faculty of Applied Science

The Faculty of Applied Sciences’ main ambition is to contribute to resolving the major social challenges of our time through its teaching and research. These challenges include a secure, safe, clean and efficient energy supply, health (e.g. effective medicines), security of food supply, green economy/bio-economy, safety and security (also in terms of information transfer) and innovation. The faculty aims to be among the best in the world in a number of research areas.

Department of Chemical Engineering

The Department of Chemical Engineering aspires to the pursuit and dissemination of knowledge in their discipline, and to shape that discipline as they do so. Their discipline is the art-turned-science of converting molecular understanding into products and processes that benefit mankind, using a healthy dose of chemistry, mathematics, physics, biology, and material science whenever that is called for. Chemical engineering at TU Delft is eclectic by design and united by a synthetic objective.

Delft Bioengineering Institute

The virtual TU Delft Bioengineering Institute strengthens the campus-wide collaboration of scientists who are engineering solutions in, with or for biology, links them with external partners, and increases the visibility of the Delft University of Technology as a major partner in the international bioengineering arena.

Delft Health Initiative

The vision of the Delft Health Initiative is that the discovery of the molecular mechanisms behind diseases allows us to improve prevention, early diagnosis and treatment. Engineering sciences not only play an important role in developing the instruments that enable scientific progress, but also in designing and engineering the tools that allow these insights to change the future of healthcare.

STUD fonds

The StuD Fund is a separate part of StuD. The aim of the StuD Fund is to facilitate innovative, entrepreneurial projects that will benefit the students of the Delft University of Technology.
