TU/e is built on three pillars: research, design and entrepreneurship.
The TU/e is a university at which the teaching programs have strong links to research. Among the ways in which this can be seen are the large numbers of doctoral graduates from the TU/e each year and the publications in leading media. In the design process, technological knowledge is used to develop new solutions for a wide range of issues. This is reflected in the designer's programs and in the Design-Based Learning programs.

The third pillar is entrepreneurship, because as well as research and design, it is important for new developments to be made accessible to a wider public. Which is why this is an important focal area in the teaching programs at the TU/e. The essential factor is the strong interrelationship between these three pillars.

The TU/e focuses on the development of technology and its application in the community at large. The most important drivers of this process are scientific curiosity and the need to develop socially relevant new knowledge.

The TU/e primarily as its working domain those fields of expertise in which it holds or can archieve international leadership positions.

The TU/e pofiles itself on a global basis as a European university.

Teaching at the TU/e is research-driven and design-oriented. It comprises bachelor's, master's, designer's and teacher's programs, as well as PhD programs and continuing education.

The quality of teaching and research at the TU/e must comply with, and is therefore assessed against, high external, international standards.
The policy of the TU/e is characterized by verifiable targets, in relation to the need for internal and external accountability.

Through its teaching and research programs, the TU/e intends primarily to serve social sector with a high and/or rapidly increasing technology content.

The TU/e offers its students and employees an international and academic, intellectually stimulating, study and working environment, that inspires to broad personal development and social and cultural involvement.

In organizational terms the TU/e is more than the sum of the parts. The individual units work together on and within a shared policy framework. To ensure the interrelationship of research, design and teaching programs, the responsibility for these activities rests with the overall administrative and consultative process of the Executive Board and the heads of the departments.
Toxic flame retardant accumulates in dolphins
14 April, 2005
HBCD, hexabromocyclododecane, is a much-used flame retardant in insulating foam and furniture upholstery. A team led by Dutch researcher Jan Boon from the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (Royal NIOZ) has discovered that one isomer of the toxic substance HBCD accumulates in dolphins and porpoises.
Sustainable gas from 'roasted' wood is a feasible option
11 February, 2005
'Roast' hardwood at relatively low temperatures and then gasify it. Dutch chemical engineer Mark Prins has shown that this is an efficient means of producing sustainable energy. The gas produced can be used for the production of electricity, fuels and/or chemicals.
Oxygen sponge saves energy during the production of plastics
11 February, 2005
Dutch researcher Bart de Graaf has developed a solid oxygen carrier, a sort of oxygen sponge. The oxygen from the sponge reacts with hydrogen to produce water. With De Graaf's discovery a lot of energy can be saved during the production of raw materials for plastics.
