All staff and students can order free self-tests. Regular self-testing helps the detection of asymptomatic spread of COVID-19, and it is advised to do regular self-tests when you come to the campus. The use of these self-tests is not mandatory and no requirement to access our campus or education. Visit for more information or to order free self-tests.


Communication with 3mE students about 3mE education and examination takes place via BrightSpace. Also read the corona web page of TU Delft, the corona web page for students, PhD corona web page or BrightSpace for more information.

  • All students on campus wear a face mask, not only when moving between rooms, but also when sitting down in classrooms.
  • For education, there is a maximum group size of 75 students per classroom. An exception applies to examinations and exams.
  • Students are informed about the details of the relevant course by the lecturers via the BrightSpace course page.

Graduation sessions
Graduation sessions can take place at the faculty with the public, with a maximum of 75 people per room and 1.5 meters distance from each other. A face mask is mandatory for all attendees, as a graduation session is held in a teaching room.

Self-study places
For all students, self-study at TU Delft and thus at the 3mE faculty is possible again, with a maximum of 75 students per room. Self-study for students is also possible in Library, Science Center and Pulse (evenings), see Central study places on campus.

For questions or advice, please contact the study advisors of 3mE. They can be reached by email or via Skype.

Face masks

We expect that students, staff and visitors are wearing face mask on the TU Delft campus, including our faculty. Not only when moving but also when sitting in classrooms. Outside the educational areas and in offices, a face mask is recommended when moving, both indoors and outdoors, and in situations where a distance of 1.5 metres cannot be maintained.

The usual safety rules apply to microbiological, chemical and radiological laboratories.
