In 1956 a law was passed enabling the foundation of the Technische Hogeschool Eindhoven (THE). When the THE was officially opened by Queen Juliana on 19 September 1957, the First academic year began. On 1 September 1986 an amendment to the law saw the THE become Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).


With a view to the future, TU/e has begun a major educational reform. The Bachelor's and Master's programs remain but are being incorporated in a Bachelor College and Graduate School respectively. Students will be given more freedom and can even choose to follow a broad-based program with society-oriented subjects or opt for a very specialized science program.
