Studying online offers you the possibility of studying wherever and whenever you want. Within the Delft Extension School there are various forms in which you can follow online education here at the TU Delft:
Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)
TU Delft offers ‘Massive Open Online Courses’ (MOOCs) on the edX-platform. A MOOC is an online course aiming at a large audience in an open manner. The MOOC can be followed for free, or you can add a verified certificate for a small fee. In addition to traditional course materials such as videos, readings, and problem sets, MOOCs provide interactive user forums that help build a community for the students, professors, and teaching assistants.
Introduction to Aeronautical EngineeringThis course provides an overview of and introduction to the fundamentals of aeronautics, using the history of aviation as a story line. The course uses examples from the very beginning of aviation (the Montgolfier brothers’ balloon flight in 1783 and the Wright brothers’ heavier-than-air flight in 1903) and continues all the way through to the current Airbus A380 and future aircraft. During this trajectory three major topics are discussed: aeronautics, aerodynamics and flight mechanics.
Online Academic Courses
The TU Delft offers a number of courses of the Aerospace BSc and MSc programs online. This means that you can take part in the courses in your own time and at your own pace. The online academic courses are largely identical to the courses given on campus and will thus give you a good academic background into the topic.
Next to offering MOOCs and online academic courses, TU Delft also offers a range of courses specifically designed for working professionals. These courses focus on practical knowledge and skills which you should be able to use in your day to day work. Upon completion of one of these courses, you will receive Continuing Education Credits (CEU’s).
