The Delft Centre for Entrepreneurship (DCE), part of Delft University of Technology, Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management, is responsible for the provision of educational programs and conducts research programs related to starting new technology-based ventures or entrepreneurial projects within established organisations. The programs are available at bachelor's, master and PhD level as well as several online programs and executive courses. Students from all faculties of TU Delft can enrol in DCE courses. DCE focuses on technology-based entrepreneurship and embraces various research approaches, methods and teaching techniques. DCE currently has 9 full-time faculty members and together with scientists, teachers and entrepreneurs from TU Delft, the tech-incubator YES!Delft, the Innovation and Impact Centre and Delft Enterprises the centre engage engineering students to contribute to the vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem of TU Delft. The activities of DCE rest on three pillars: (1) Education in Technology Entrepreneurship; (2) Research in Technology Entrepreneurship; (3) Entrepreneurial activities in practice. The cross-fertilization of the three pillars is vital to enhancing entrepreneurship education and preserving its quality at the highest level, as well as providing nascent entrepreneurs with the latest developments and insights. In doing so, it is important to engage with experts from industry to obtain the latest insights and share these with students, young entrepreneurs and researchers.
