For almost 50 years, the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) has stood for freedom, equality and connectedness . These values are strongly present on our campuses, in our students as well as our staff.
At the VUB, you’ll find a diverse collection of personalities : pure innovators, but especially people who are 100% their authentic selves .
With about 3,500 employees , we are the largest Flemish-speaking employer in Brussels , an international city with which we are all too happy to be affiliated and around which our four campuses are located.
Our education and research are grounded in the principles of free research with an eye on human progress. We disapprove of every purely authoritative argument and guarantee the free formation of judgement that is necessary for this basic principle to be incorporated in the community.
The VUB is autonomous and managed democratically . As such, we guarantee fundamental freedoms within our university, as well as the right of the university community to be involved in making and checking university policy.
The mission of the university includes :
Advanced cooling concepts and electro-thermal modelling of WBG power electronics converters for vehicle and stationary applications
