The TU/e intends to be a research-driven, design-oriented university of technology, with the primary objective of providing young people with an academic education within the engineering science & technology domain.
The primary task is the training of engineers (at Master of Science level) possessing a sound scientific basis and depth of knowledge, as well as the necessary competences that will enable them to develop successful careers in a wide range of fields and functions within the community. The bachelor?s programs (BSc) are intended to serve as a basis for further education at Master?s level. The TU/e also trains teachers (at Master of Science level), designers (at the Professional Doctorate in Engineering level) and researchers (at Doctor of Philosophy level). In addition, it provides postacademic programs and courses.
In the research field the TU/e prefers to focus, within the engineering science & technology domain, on the specific areas in which it takes or can take a significant role in the international scientific world, and in which it can make meaningful contributions to the knowledge-intensive industries and other sectors of the community with a high, or rapidly developing, technology intensity.
