175th Anniversary

Friday 13 January was the big day: during the Dies Natalis, festivities began to celebrate TU Delft’s 175th anniversary. To commemorate this milestone, Delft will devote itself for 175 days to the theme ‘Technology for Life’: technology inspired by nature, which enhances our understanding of all things living and the quality of our lives. Various activities will be held for and by students, staff, alumni, businesses and the citizens of Delft from 13 January to 6 July. Needless to say, 3mE will be there too! We are currently working hard on the details of our participation.

As soon as we’re done, we’ll post our activities on the website for the anniversary programme. Here’s an idea of some of the activities we’re organising:

A special 3mE design competition for mechanical engineering, entirely in the spirit of the anniversary - 14 June 2017 
Precise details to be announced.
