It has evolved over the past ten years into an internationally successful, multidisciplinary university with innovation at the heart of everything it does. This gives us a great starting point for the next stage of the university’s development, which is marked by the grand challenges posed by the megatrends of the world, and the ever-growing global competition for talent and expertise.
