I studied Aerospace Engineering for my Master of Science. I absolutely loved the university, the facilities and countless opportunities it offered. There is good support for your studies (in terms of availability of professors/lectures and easiness of retrieval of study material), and amazing support for your extra curricular activities, from sports to culture to student societies. TU Delft has a great name as well, which help enormously when looking for a job. 10/10 would recommend it!
It lives up to its reputation. It’s very up to date with facilities and research. I’ve been studying at the faculty of science for multiple years and really enjoyed it. The professors there are very supportive. Also, it provides a lot of extracurricular activities and other possibilities for students. The amount of work is high though and combined with the great amount of freedom you’re given, it can become hard to manage
I have studied product design at TU and after I decided to go on at TU as teaching assistant. The reason I learned pragmatic teaching style of Delft and wanted to transfer it to prospective students. I have seen many different schools due to my job and I can say Delft is high quality compared to most. Its history and knowledge resource is a bottomless pit which makes it unique. For that reason, many students are competing to be a part of this university. Not only becoming a successful student is enough, you should have additional characteristics to be enrolled. If students want to lead technology and future, Delft is one of main locations for this.
Delft is the leading technology university of Netherlands. I have completed my master degree about system engineering. Having graduated from Delft was one of the main reasons I was employed quickly by one of the biggest companies in the world. Due to high reputation and and its education tradition, everyone has a respect for this old and successful university. Additionaly, university developed city due to being international education foundation
One of the best Universities to study in. It gives you ample amount of freedom, but with that freedom comes great responsibility. The responsibility of being consistent and not procrastinating is one thing I have learnt here. Understanding the physics behind every problem, applying what you know and having an intuition is what counts here rather than mugging up the formulae and simply applying it. The quarter system makes it necessary for one to be smart in choosing the number of subjects to have a study-party balance. The best part is the parties that happen here. Those are a way to let the steam off. I personally look up to them after a heavy week.
Studies at TU Delft are strongly based on self initiative. On the one side, this is good as it promotes initiative and action. On the other hand, a deep scientific understanding of the subject is most of the times redundant. Given the exhausting workloads, there is usually no time or motivation for a deeper iteration on knowledge.
-Great value in the job market
-Helpful and friendly staff
-Promotes self initiative
-In the end, job will get done
-A functionalistic approach of knowledge. Results are based on experiments and often a theoretical base of them is neglected.
-Too biased towards technical excitement. Leaves no space for students’ sentimental consciousness development.
At TU Delft I found myself learning with and from the best. Having a real international group of people also was very interesting because it offered multiple opinions and points of view on different topics. Also having a focus on having a good work-life balance was also something I really enjoyed. You will definitely find groups for any of your interests no matter if it’s sports, music, arts, dancing, etc. I truly appreciate as an international student that the University counseling staff was always supportive when I was having a hard time away from home and needed help. They truly care for people to grow in their intellect, but also as human beings.
TU Delft is an amazing college in terms of the course structure. The courses here are very specific and well designed, to ensure that you enroll in things that you actually want to study. This also means that one has to devote a lot of hours to have a complete understanding. The only drawback that I have come across during my stay here is that the utility costs in the Netherlands are very expensive and nothing over here is cheap. However I would totally recommend you to come here and experience this by yourself. It’s definitely worth it.
