The Network Architectures and Services Group

The NAS group belongs to the Quantum and Computer Engineering Department in the faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) of the Delft University of Technology.

NAS educates and conducts research in the broad area of complex networks, ranging from man-made infrastructures such as data communications and energy networks, to biological, brain, social and financial networks. The emphasis lies on understanding network characteristics as well as the processes running on top of the network.

NAS participates in the Bachelor's program of Electrical Engineering and in the following Master Programs of Delft University of Technology:

  • Master of Science (MSc) in Computer Science
  • Master of Science (MSc) in Telecommunications
  • Master of Science (MSc) in Computer Engineering
  • Master of Science (MSc) in Embedded System
