At this university there are a lot of opportunities to develop, not only in the field of engineering, but also outside of it. Delft has an international community and one of the parts for this is EESTEC LC Delft (which is inside of the study association of Electrical Engineering – ETV).View more

The TU Delft is one of the top Universities of Technology in the Netherlands and also world wide. With a high tech campus, great facilities and also a beautiful city for the best student life one could wish for.View more
I would totally recommend TU Delft to anyone who wishes to take on a challenging two years of master’s. The curriculum is extremely research-oriented and the university mainly excels at that however it still provides plenty of opportunities to go beyond that by indulging in extra-curricular and co-curricular activities. All it takes is a little bit of dedication and a lot of passion to explore oneself. Overall I am highly satisfied with my experience here.View more
I would recommend the TUDelft but for some degrees, you definitely need more time than the official duration of the curriculum. The TUDelft also offers great extracurricular activities and supports them.View more
The university is really on the forefront of science. By combining and working together with a variety of disciplines, TU Delft really is a great place for increasing knowledge and a breeding ground for new solutions.View more
Finding housing in Delft is quite easy, especially compared to in other Dutch cities. DUWO is usually the best option to try or also the university has a special housing program for international students.View more
The level of the courses taught is very high, higher than at many other universities. Also there are lots of other extra-curricular activities provided so the students gain other, practical experience, such as the Nuna or Ecorunner dreamteams.View more
I joined TU Delft in August, 2018 so this review is from the point of view of someone who hasn’t been there for long and is from a far away land called, India.
The culture and work ethics at TU Delft can be best described as “open”. Located conveniently in a quiet but not-so-empty city, it’s proximal to all utility stores, a theatre, the city centre and a 15 minute bike ride from most accommodations (in Delft).
The first step is arrival. If you are an incoming student I would highly recommend using the university services for finding a place to live in (you will be charged but it’s worth it; due to the sudden surge in international students in the EU, availability has reduced).
Post arrival, travelling to the campus (or the key pickup location) is really not hard. There was a shuttle service provided by the uni but it was discontinued in our year. Hence, things are pretty dynamic and you should be as flexible as possible.
I’m a Masters student in Biomedical Engineering at 3mE so our work started the day the Introduction Programme (IP) ended. It’s a university where you always have to be on your toes. Prior to starting your classes you make an individual study programme (which might or might not need approval depending on your faculty), so make sure you sit down with your friends and professors and plan a masterpiece (pun intended; not my own sadly).
*Start from Day 0*. This is not a place where you can study one week before the exams and still pass. Grading is a bit stringent but at the same time not really accounted for (since the level is highly standardised) when you apply for internships and projects (there motivation letters and interviews have higher priorities). The subjects are oriented towards the tracks you have chosen but there’s no limit (except for maybe the sky). You can take as many courses in as many faculties as you want (which is the best part about the university *and* it’s not pay-per-credit, so no catch there). The catch is finishing on time. Most international students (non-EU) have an additional burden of graduating within two years since post that you have to still continue paying the fees, and it’s a..lot..comparatively speaking. So when you do take courses, make sure they align with your research interests/maybe even your thesis.
Then come projects. I managed to land a project of interest within two weeks of entering the college. This goes to show how enthusiastic the professors are. They will put you in touch with whoever you need to/want to work with and after that you’ll find yourself applying your courses in the real world (or the lab world).
From a social point of view, the campus is very vibrant. You can join a committee in your student association, a sports team, start your own company, and if you get the time… join a Dream Team (Dutch students usually take a year off to work in a Dream team which reflects the amount of work and time you need to put in). There are plenty activities in the Sports and Culture centre, so you’re covered well and it’s almost never cloudy with a chance of boredom it’s just…cloudy.
All in all, it’s a good university and you will definitely get your money’s worth (almost every student gets a job within three months of graduation), and a bonus point is access to an excellent library that you never really want to leave (they have legos !!!)
