Description

Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) is a research-driven university of international standing, where excellent research and excellent education go hand in hand. In the areas of engineering science and technology, we focus on a balanced approach of education, research and valorization of knowledge.

From our lively university campus, situated in the heart of the Netherlands’ high-tech Brainport region and equipped with high-quality lab facilities, we make an impact on scientific and societal issues. We do this by delivering excellent, groundbreaking research, often in close collaboration with industry, and by providing the education that turns our students into engineers for the future. Our engineers look beyond just technology. They understand what the world needs and can translate scientific knowledge into societal value. Our educational strategy allows students to participate fully in research and the high tech industry, or to start their own companies.

Plenty of projects to give students practical experience and learn to work in groups (including multidisciplinary groups) Very international, almost all courses are in English (I believe there are 2 degrees in Dutch) Many opportunities to do internship/thesis with companies Easy to get a job after the degree - Housing shortage in Eindhoven - Some professors are not great at English, but there has been a huge improvement in the last few years

I believe this university does not simply provide a ton of theory with no practical use but attempts to ground its curriculum in what is needed in the field, improving its courses each year in order to keep them relevant. The campus is big and provides very modern facilities. The university encourages its students to take an active role in their development, providing plenty of options in terms of student teams and associations for the more ambitious.

The university facilities are fairly decent, most of the equipment seems good. However TU may be lacking in small areas like some major lecture rooms not having electric outlets for students, or some course not having any decent quality (graphics/visibility) video-lecture. TU has a great city in terms of educational facility however this city being mainly a researching and business city is arguably not the best for "student-life" as many 'fun' things are outside student budgets, even something as basic as housing students seems to be problematic for this city. Professors can be a hit/miss with truly exceptional people like Bart the Algorithms teacher winning best teacher multiple years in a row, on the other hand, things like "I will not upload the slides because its too much paperwork" have been said by teachers, which is appalling. Finally, I think this university has fantastic career prospects due to its existing connection to the industry, which makes the struggle with everything else worth it.

Great campus, but strict boring ridiculous rules, useless classes and overall a pain to deal with. I had a great time, landed a good job and made many friends but the class content itself was poor. And dealing with the administration was horrid.

Location/Lifestyle TU/e is situated in a small city. One of the drawbacks is the location, the city of Eindhoven is not the best student city and hasn't really changed in the past 5 years given that the Netherlands is one of the best economies. Eindhoven has pretty much nothing to do, one can easily get bored after 4/5 weeks. The city is just not big enough to have a metro/tram system. Everybody uses bicycles to get around and coincidently it rains more than 150 days a year which is not the best situation. It can get really boring and dull especially if you are an expat or an international. The supermarkets lack variety even though the food quality is the best in the world. Finances It is pretty unfair to ask international prospective student tuition (11000 Euros) that is 5 times as much as the for national and EU citizens (~1900 Euros). The accommodation is one of the major issues here at TU. More students are intentionally registered/accepted than their capacity. Apartments are extremely expensive to rent and student houses are getting expensive by the year. If you have no experience living in a student house, it's very likely that you will get scammed or not receive your deposit. Monthly expenditure on food and travel can go up to 300/400 Euros. Traveling around the Netherlands is fairly easy since all cities are connected via train/bus. Study The university sets a low bar for entrance and gives a chance to everyone to excel, unlike the UK. This is also countered by 'filtering' the students via the basic courses like physics and calculus. However, surprisingly enough bachelor students are planned to graduate in 3 years, which is highly impossible if you want to have a decent social life and make connections. The course division and selection is also decent and well planned. However, not much effort or time is invested in courses with passing rates lower than 20-30%. This results in smart students losing their motivation and credibility. The resources regarding my degree at least are good (Practical Labs

The TU/e offers a great opportunity to immerse yourself in your study and area of interest. Most courses, - especially first year and introductory ones - are well organised and are designed to help you pass, given that you put in the effort, of course. That being said, this university is not for you if you're both: a) An international student b) Coming here to enjoy a "student life" Put simply, if you are planning to come here, make sure that your goal is to finish your study first and foremost, everything else can follow.

I am quite happy with my experience at the TUe so far. The education level is way higher than I expected but in a good way. It does get stressful every now and then because of the quartile system the university uses, but it is manageable. Keep in mind that this uni advertises it's degrees as 3 years, but (in EE at least) only around 40% of students graduate in 3 years. This university is very technical and oriented more towards theoretical knowledge and research. That being said, there is a bunch of group projects in my program like designing wireless chargers, automating baby cradles (this course is called Rock Your Baby!). The courses themselves are fun and educational, you have to pass 9/12 courses in the first year to stay in major you enrolled in. It is not as difficult as it sounds. There are lots of labs embedded in the other courses, particularly in the later senior courses that are very fun and interesting as they let you apply the knowledge you learn directly into a practical scenario. The facilities for those labs are usually top-notch. You are only getting the best. The professors require proficient (C1 level) English to teach, so you can expect good English from them, with the occasional accent. Regardless, there is no doubt they are more than competent to do their job. Accommodation is a problem in the whole of the Netherlands, and as such housing companies do the only obvious thing any company can do to help and that is raising their prices to astronomical levels (this is passive-aggressive sarcasm if you couldn't tell). The university does its share to help students find accommodation in these conditions, but there is only so much it can do on its own. This is the only problem I've seen in studying in the Netherlands in general.

It is hard to find a top-rated university that offers the Build environment studies in English that would NOT be in an English speaking country such as GB, US, Australia, and Canada. Those countries have very expensive tuition fees both for internationals and EU citizens. Luckily, TUe offers the architecture bachelor completely in English and the tuition fees are not too high (for eu students). Additionally, the university is highly ranked both in general and field specifically. However, during my studies here I met a lot of troubles when I had to fight for things. For example, my Adobe license was taken in the middle of my degree because “I have a private computer“ and they suddenly stopped supporting those. I also had to fight for my accommodation and only after I exposed them for not following the waiting list was I given one. The teaching style is rather impersonal with lecture halls being full of students and professors not engaging questions and not making sure the taught material is absorbed properly. There are live streams and recordings of the lectures to watch at home but often they don’t work and the person ends up missing a lecture completely. As for my degree, there are a lot of studios where we need to work on our projects but also in the visualizations and models. Those things require skills with adobe apps and modeling programs as well as materials for model making. However, there is no education about the usage of the programs. (Figure-it-out-yourself style) same goes for models, but there there is a need of buying the materials which also costs money and nobody is reimbursing that. In my degree the university does give any room for exchange nor do they include an internship in the program. The possibility of Erasmus would be during masters. The campus is nice, all the buildings are on campus. As the bottom line, the uni okay for the money, however, there are a lot of things that o would complain about .
