The Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment at TU Delft, established in 1904, has a leading role in the area of architecture education and research in the broadest sense. The Faculty consists of five departments; Architecture, Urbanism, Architectural Engineering + Technology, OTB – Research for the Built Environment and Management in the Built Environment (formerly Real Estate & Housing).

Some three thousand students, hundreds of researchers, lecturers and professors follow or provide education here, do research and support work in a dynamic, distinctive and internationally oriented environment. It is one of the largest architecture faculties in Europe and a leading design academy in ‘design-oriented research’.
As stated by the Director of Research, “our research portfolio holds a strong promise for the future. In a time when the economy seems to be finally picking up and in which such societal issues as energy, climate and ageing are more prominent than ever before, there are plenty of fields for us to explore in the next three years.”
The following categories of research at the faculty can be distinguished: evaluation research, historical research, conceptual research and practical research. The Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment comprises nine research programs.
