Faculty Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science

  Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science

Ranked the 52nd best university in the world, according to the QS World University Rankings® 2019, Delft University of Technology excels in civil engineering, mechanical engineering and electrical engineering. 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. Within this interdisciplinary and international setting the faculty employs more than 1100 employees, including about 400 graduate students and about 4000 students. 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.

The Network Architectures and Services (NAS) section, part of the Department of Quantum & Computer Engineering in EEMCS, educates and conducts research in the broad area of complex networks, ranging from data communications and Internetworking, to other man-made infrastructures such as road-traffic networks, and to biological, brain, social, and financial sector networks. The emphasis lies on design and management of infrastructures. NAS also has expertise in concepts (e.g. routing, robustness) of network architectures, in the performance analysis of quality of service-aware protocols and Internet behaviour, and in strategic and business-oriented challenges for network operators.
