Degree programme

During the bachelor program you follow a study programme with courses from both technical and exact sciences as well as social and management sciences. Think of engineering, mathematics, economics, administration, management, law and policy analysis. You also learn how business and public administration works, which governments there are and which competences they have.

An important aspect of Technische Bestuurskunde is the mathematics that you develop in order to be able to produce numerical impact models for technological solutions.

Strong community

The study Technische Bestuurskunde is known for its strong community. Students work together a lot and the atmosphere is very open and together. This is reinforced by the structure of the training; you work a lot in project groups where you research solutions for current issues.

Internship & study abroad

Internships may only be arranged during your Master's programme, and are selected as an elective. During an internship, you become acquainted with technical, social, economic and organisational aspects of professional civil engineering practice. In addition, you learn more about a specific field of study and develop social and communication skills. The ideal internship is a combination of learning in practice and deepening your knowledge. Internships may be done in the Netherlands or abroad. The internships are offered to the faculty's Internship Office by contractors, consultancies, engineering firms and government agencies.

Additional challenge

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. 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.

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.

The 'Curius' Society

Curius is the study association of the Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management. Almost all TB students are members of this association, which represents the interests of students. The association sells textbooks at a discount, but also organises activities such as excursions to companies and government institutions, social gatherings and parties, and the first-years' weekend. Curius also works on improving education by participating in meetings in which proposals are made to improve the contents and organisational aspects of the degree programme and in consultations with the programme management team of the faculty.

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.
