Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science
The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) is known worldwide for its high academic quality and the social relevance of its research programmes. The faculty’s excellent facilities accentuate its international position in teaching and research. The faculty offers an interdisciplinary setting for its 500 employees, 350 PhD students and 1700 undergraduates. Together they work on a broad range of technical innovations in the fields of sustainable energy, telecommunications, microelectronics, embedded systems, computer and software engineering, interactive multimedia and applied mathematics. EEMCS: Your Connection to the Future.

The research at the Delft Institute of Applied Mathematics (DIAM) centers around the analysis of mathematical models arising in science and engineering.This research is both analytical and numerical in nature, and is often inspired by technical applications.
The department plays an active role in translating research results into concrete, practical applications. It maintains intensive contacts with other TU Delft departments, the major technological institutes (ECN, NLR, WL, Rijkswaterstaat, MARIN, TNO) and the research laboratories of major companies. Within its own subject field the department provides teaching for the Applied Mathematics BSc and MSc programmes, and also contributes to the teaching of mathematics courses within other academic programmes at TU Delft, and within national programmes such as “MasterMath”.
The Analysis group is one of the key research groups at DIAM. Internationally, the group has a long-standing tradition of excellence in the areas of functional analysis, partial differential equations, and stochastic analysis.
