Description: TU Delft cooperates with many other educational and research institutions, both in the Netherlands and abroad. The high quality of our research and teaching is renowned. TU Delft has numerous contacts with governments, trade associations, consultancies, industry and small and medium-sized companies.
The University only received its current name in 1986, although it has been providing technical education for 165 years. The essence of the TU Delft logo is Prometheus' flame. TU Delft can follow in Prometheus' footsteps by developing innovative, durable and environment-friendly technology. Prometheus' flame thereby makes a worthy symbol for TU Delft.
