Degree programme

Self-driving cars, smartphone navigation, personalised offers based on your surfing behaviour and robots used in healthcare. During the Bachelor’s degree programme in Computer Science and Engineering, you will learn how to develop software and data processing for the intelligent systems of today and the future.


The Bachelor’s degree programme in Computer Science and Engineering is intense, so be prepared to work hard. On average, you will spend about 40 hours a week on the programme, including 12 hours of lectures, 10 hours of laboratory courses and projects and 18 hours of self-study.

Bilingual (Dutch-English) track and English track

The Bachelor Computer Science and Engineering consists of two tracks: The Bilingual track (Dutch-English) and the English track. Students with a foreign diploma are only admissible for the English track, unless they can show a Dutch language proficiency certificate. You can find more information about the language requirements here.

The English track is fully taught in English.

Internship and study abroad

The third year includes a six-month minor, which is possible to follow abroad. This is a coherent programme of courses with which you can deepen or broaden your studies. Internships are not part of the CSE bachelor. Instead, the Software Project in year 2 is an opportunity to go to a company and work on an applied project.

Additional Opportunities

Delft Honours Programme Delft
The Delft Honours Programme is for ambitious students who are looking for a challenge over and above what their curriculum offers. This is in addition to your regular study programme in the 2nd and 3rd year. It gives you the opportunity to acquire additional knowledge in or outside your field of specialisation, to work on your personal development, and to collaborate with students on other programmes.
More information about the Delft Honours Programme

At TU Delft you have the opportunity to be involved in unique student projects that bring together students from various disciplines. These incredible student projects include the world’s fastest bicycle, the fastest solar-powered car, and the altitude record for amateur-built rockets. Our teams compete in worldwide competitions and achieve fantastic results that put TU Delft on the map.

Top sporting talent
Do you want to become a top-level athlete while studying for your degree? TU Delft supports students who combine their studies with top-level sporting activities and invests in the development of talent in and outside the lecture halls. Because it is often difficult to combine a regular programme of study with a top-level sports training programme, we offer special facilities and provisions for recognised top-level athletes. This includes coaching by academic counsellors and top-level sports coordinators, financial support in the form of the Graduation Support Scheme, sponsorship, and access to the sports facilities at X.

Student support and guidance

During your studies, you are not on your own. In your first year of study you will be assigned a mentor who will help you to familiarise yourself with the campus and your study programme. Your mentor is there to answer questions you have during your new life as a student. In addition, every degree programme has academic counsellors to help you with questions about your degree programme and everything related to it. If you have questions about matters such as study planning, study delay and studying with a disability, we have a group of student counsellors, psychologists and study and careers advisers who are ready to help. Together they form the Student & Career Support team.

Study association 'Christiaan Huygens' (CH)

Christiaan Huygens is the study association for students of Mathematics and Computer Science and Engineering at TU Delft. The study associations promote the interests of students through various activities, such as selling textbooks at a discount, making previous examinations available, monitoring the quality of education and resolving potential problems with help of lecturers and students. CH also offers students the opportunity to connect with the business community. Naturally, CH also organises social events, excursions, symposiums, educational trips, social gatherings and lunches for members.

Binding recommendation

TU Delft employs the BSA system: the binding recommendation on the continuation of studies. This means that you must obtain at least 75 per cent of your credits (i.e. 45 of the 60 ECTS) in your first year in order to continue your programme. If you receive a negative binding recommendation on the continuation of studies, you will not be permitted to enroll in this programme again in the next 4 years.
