TU Delft is the largest university of technology in the Netherlands. The university covers virtually the entire spectrum of engineering sciences, divided across 41 departments in 8 faculties. From a strong tradition for over 175 years in the field of civil engineering, we have developed our research portfolio into a broad array of research areas. Currently, we contribute recognised global research leadership in fields as diverse as quantum-nano, bio-nano, maritime technology, architecture, transport, water management, aerospace technology and robotics.

Within the TU Delft a research program is established to facilitate the development of high performing Wind Assisted Ship Propulsion (WASP) by increasing knowledge of WASP through research and education. The development of WASP ships cover a broad research field, and it is therefore organised in an interdisciplinary research program. To this end the WASP program facilitates research in collaboration with different sections across multiple faculties of the TU Delft.

The WASP program focuses on the following research themes

  • Fluid dynamics
  • Design and operations
  • Sustainable and social impact
