About 
Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) is a modern university with a rich tradition. Eight faculties and over 30 English-language Master programmes are at the forefront of technological development, contributing to scientific advancement in the interests of society, both nationally and internationally. Ranked among the top universities of technology in Europe (#17, QS 2016-2017) TU Delft’s excellent research and education standards are backed by outstanding facilities, research institutes and research schools. TU Delft aims to offer courses with challenging subject matter and inspiring teaching to students from all over the world.

The Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences dates back to 1842 and throughout its 165 of practice, this faculty has been committed to questioning the future of the Applied Earth Science practice. Today, the faculty aims to understand, predict and monitor the subserface and also influence it to the beneit of our society. The faculty's key geoscience disciplines are geology and geophysics, while the key engineering disciplines are geomechanics and flow, transport and chemistry in porous media.

Delft University of Technology has 8 distinct faculties, each with their own Brochure page and quotas. This is the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences. The other Faculties include:

Applied Sciences - Delft University of Technology (ASci) EXC
Civil Engineering and Geosciences - Delft University of Technology (ENG-CG) EXC

If unsure which Delft University of Technology Faculty is most applicable to your degree, please view each course study guide separately.

Highlights
The key distinguishing characteristic of the Faculty of Geoscience and Engineering is the combination of geoscience with engineering. The mission of the faculty is to “Reveal and explain the Earth’s underground resources and support their use in an environmentally responsible manner”. 

Unique characteristics
TU Delft is a modern university with a focus on new scientific understanding and technological breakthroughs. It focusses on training scientists and engineers and provides them with a broad academic grounding from a world-class institution. As such, it is a catalyst of innovation and economic growth. Common themes in the research of the faculty of civil Engineering and Geosciences revolve around the use of subsurface resources (in particular energy, minerals and space), the uncertainty, heterogeneity and complexity of the subsurface and the related coupled multi-scale processes. The faculty approaches these themes with laboratory experimentation, theoretical analysis, large-scale numerical simulation, field work and, preferably, combinations of these approaches where possible.

Location
The Netherlands is one of Europe’s smallest countries but it has one of the most important economies. TU Delft is positioned a stone’s throw away from The Hague and less than an hour south of Amsterdam. About 27,000 people travel across TU Delft every day making it lively and pedestrian-friendly campus.
