The oldest and largest Dutch public technical university

'Delft University of Technology, also known as TU Delft, is the oldest and largest Dutch public technical university, located in Delft, Netherlands.

With eight faculties and numerous research institutes,[1] it has more than 26,000 students (undergraduate and postgraduate) and 6,000 employees (teaching, research, support and management staff).[2]

The university was established on 8 January 1842 by William II of the Netherlands as a Royal Academy, with the primary purpose of training civil servants for work in the Dutch East Indies. The school expanded its research and education curriculum over time, becoming a polytechnic school in 1864 and an institute of technology (making it a full-fledged university) in 1905. It changed its name to Delft University of Technology in 1986.[3]
