Application deadlines and admission requirements

What is the application deadline for the programmes?

Link to information on TU Delft website about application.

Can students decide to start in February with their MSc?

It is not advised to start in February since the MUDE module and the track core programme will only start in the first semester and will be finished in Q2. Starting in February will therefore most likely result in serious delays in completing the programme.

What are the admission requirements for the MSc programmes?

The admission CEG BSc to MSc programmes per September 2022 is as follows:

 

MSc AES

MSc CE

MSc EnvEng

BSc AES/TA

No extra requirements

Bridging minor

Fluid Mechanics

BSc CE (+UT)

No extra requirements

No extra requirements

No extra requirements

Relevant BSc (WO NL or int.)          

Bridging programme AES, depending on BSc 

Bridging programme CE

Bridging programme EnvEng

Relevant HBO BSc

Bridging programme AES-HBO          

Bridging programme CE-HBO          

Bridging programme EnvEng-HBO          


Which courses in BSc CE and AES will prepare for the new MSc EnvEng?

  • All math courses are required for entering the MSc EnvEng and for AES BSc students, an opportunity is given in the first year to satisfy the requirements for fluid mechanics in addition to the fluid mechanics parts already available in the BSc AES.  
  • AES BSc students who want to apply for the MSc programme CE, need to take a bridging minor of 30 EC (the bridging minor is under construction).
  • CE BSc students can apply for MSc AES and MSc EnvEng without any further requirements. 
  • In general: if you want to go from BSc CE or BSc AES to a different MSc programme, you should, if possible, choose as many subjects as possible in the direction of your new choice. For example, for students who opt for MSc AES, it would be smart to get familiar with the basic concepts of geology beforehand. This is not because it may be compulsory (only the admission requirements are binding) but because it reinforces your choice and prepares you for a different field of work.

If some courses from the BSc are needed for new MSc, can I take these courses while following the MSc programme?
Students need to pass the required courses before they can be admitted to the MSc programme they apply for. Depending on your previous programme, you may be required to do a pre-master's in order to be admitted to the new MSc AES or CE. The exact content of the pre-master's course varies from programme to programme. If a pre-master's course of more than 45 credits is required, you can only be admitted after having completed a complete bachelor's programme that gives direct access to the new master's programmes.

Are the electives in the third year BSc adapted to the new MSc programmes?
There will be no changes in the current BSc programmes at the moment.

It it true that the BSc Civil Engineering is  a sufficient basis for the MSc Applied Earth Sciences, while certain prior knowledge (e.g. geology, and geophysics) is missing in the BSc CT? 
The BSc Applied Earth Sciences is of course the optimal preparation for the master programme Appied Earth Sciences. Although the BSc Civil Engineering does not offer the optimal basis for an MSc AES, we do admit students with this diploma to the master programme Applied Earth Sciences. Students with a BSc Civil Engineering are expected to have necessary knowledge about Geology, Geophysics and Physical Transport for the MSc AES. Although this is not a prior requirement, students who lack knowledge about these topics, will need to put extra effort in their studies. We assume that motivated students are willing to study the missing prior knowledge independently and work harder at certain parts of the programme. On the other hand, students with a BSc Civil Engineering can have an advantage on other parts of the programme, because they have more knowledge of subjects like Dynamics compared to bachelor students Applied Earth Sciences.

Why is it not possible to go from BSc AES to MSc CE without admission requirements?       
In the new master's programmes you are no longer admitted to a specific track, but to the entire programme, regardless of the track you ultimately choose. This is partly due to the fact that the common part of the new MSc programme is much larger than in the current MSc programme. The BSc AES does not provide a sufficient basis for all tracks in the new MSc CE programme.

When can I apply for the new MSc Environmental Engineering the is planned for 2022?
