Mandatory Matching

The bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering is an enjoyable and challenging study, but it does not always correspond to what prospective students expect. The bachelor's programme in Electrical Engineering therefore considers it important that before you start your study you experience what it is like to do this study, so that you can determine whether this programme suits you. For this reason, Mandatory Matching is applicable for all students who want to start the programme in September 2023.

If you do not or not fully participate in the mandatory matching procedure, your enrolment will be withdrawn.

Language

The official language of the programme is Dutch. All communication and also the official language of the mandatory matching will therefore also be in Dutch.

What does the Mandatory Matching consist of?

The most important part of the Mandatory Matching is the Matching day. On that day you will have the opportunity to experience (possibly online) what it is like to study Electrical Engineering. You will get examples of lectures, seminars and assignments. There will also be an opportunity to get acquainted with the programme, teachers and future fellow students in a relaxed atmosphere.

The Matching days for students, who want to start their bachelor’s programme of Electrical Engineering in September 2023, will be announced mid December 2022.

In preparation for the Matching day, you also need to do some assignments at home, such as filling in a questionnaire and homework to prepare for the Matching day.

Based on the results of the Matching procedure, the programme will give you advice on how well the bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering suits you. This advice is not binding. It is up to you to decide whether or not you want to follow it.

Registering for the mandatory matching procedure

You must submit a request for enrolment by 1 May 2023 at the latest via Studielink for the bachelor's programme in Electrical Engineering. You will receive more information about how to apply for the mandatory matching procedure after registering via Studielink. If you do not register for the programme by 1 May 2023 at the latest, your application will be refused. For exceptions to this rule, see "exceptions".

Exceptions

Not able to participate on the Matching day?

Participating in the matching day is mandatory for everyone. If you are unable to attend due to force majeure or illness, please contact us via skc-ewi@tudelft.nl. We will then assess whether there really is a case of force majeure. If this is the case, we will look for a suitable solution so that you can still do (part of) the Mandatory Matching. 

NOTE: holidays are not a valid reason for not participating in the procedure.

Registration after 1 May 2023

In the following situations it is possible to apply for the programme after the deadline of 1 May 2023.

  • If you did apply via Studielink to start another programme in higher education by 1 May 2023 at the latest.
  • If you receive a negative BSA from a programme in higher education for the academic year 2022-2023.

For this group the matching day will take place in the last week of August.
