Technische Universiteit Delft


Delft University of Technology (the TU Delft) is a multifaceted institution offering education and carrying out research in the technical sciences at an internationally recognised level. Education, research and design are strongly oriented towards applicability. The TU Delft develops technologies for future generations, focusing on sustainability, safety and economic vitality. At the TU Delft you will work in an environment where technical sciences and society converge. The TU Delft comprises eight faculties, unique laboratories, research institutes and schools. Electrical Engineering, Mathematics & Computer Science The Department of Quantum Engineering has a double mission. The first is to bring together EEMCS researchers who work on quantum computing-related topics. This line of research is intimately connected to QuTech, as the quantum computing researchers of this department are also part of the QuTech research centre. The second is to work on various other computing technologies ranging from single photon detection and liquid silicon to big data, reconfigurable architectures, and dependable nano-computing.
QuTech (www.qutech.nl) is an advanced research centre for quantum computing and quantum Internet, a collaboration founded by the TU Delft and TNO.

Within the Quantum Engineering Department, the research of the NAS section focuses on network science and its application in diverse fields, ranging from infrastructural networks (telecommunications networks, Internet, power grids, utilities (gas, water, waste), transport (road, air, train, ship), biological networks, human brain networks, social networks, financial and economic networks, and quantum networks. The NAS mission consists of understanding both the function (services, processes) and the underlying graph in complex networks to assess, control, and improve network performance and resilience.
