The TU Delft Sports Engineering Institute aims to create intensive interdisciplinary collaborations between researchers of the faculties 3ME, IO, LR, EWI and BK. It will give Delft a unique position as the most engineering oriented university in the field of sports research, combining the broad fundamental knowledge of these engineering faculties. The TU Delft Sports Engineering Institute aims to bring about joint collaborations, by bringing together researchers both based on their research expertise (eg. Aero- and hydrodynamics, biomechanics, product design) as well as in multidisciplinary sport-related projects (eg. Rowing, Cycling, Swimming, children’s play, etc). This multidisciplinary approach will lead to unique scientific output in the various fields of research.
