History[edit]

The faculty started in 1997 from a merger between the two existing faculties of the Delft University of Technology at the time: Technology and Society and Systems Engineering, Policy Analysis and Management. From 1992 to 1998 Henk G. Sol was founding Dean of the new School for Engineering, Policy Analysis and Management. He prepared the merger, in 1998, into the Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management.

The Faculty of Technology and Society had been a joint faculty from the 1960s, including philosophy, economics, skills, technology assessment, law and gender studies. Its main task was to provide service education to all the other faculties of the Delft University of Technology. The Faculty of Systems Engineering, Policy Analysis and Management was built from scratch and started in 1992 with a new curriculum and research programme.
