TU Delft minors for students from Leiden and Rotterdam

There are several ways for you to fill the minor programme within your Bachelor's degree programme. If you would like to broaden or deepen your knowledge in a technological programme, learn a new way of thinking, or study in a different city, why not take a thematic minor at Delft University of Technology? TU Delft offers a range of thematic minors in which you can either broaden your knowledge or become more specialised.  

This page contains information about the range of minors offered, the registration process and other practical matters. 

Choices of thematic minors at TU Delft

Disclaimer: Each thematic minor has only a limited number of places available, so there is no guarantee that you can be placed in the minor of your choice. 

TU Delft offers more than fifty minors each year. The range of minors comprises selection and non-selection minors. These can both broaden and deepen your knowledge as part of your degree programme. 

See the entire range of TU Delft minors in the total overview and check that your preferred minor is open to you. You should use the admissions matrix for this. 

TU Delft only offers thematic minors in the first semester of the academic year. These are mainly 30 EC minors, only the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment offers minors worth 15 EC and 30 EC. 

Please note: The timetables in Delft may differ from the timetables in Leiden and Rotterdam. Besides this, passing the minor is subject to the regulations of the degree programme under which your preferred minor falls. If you have any questions about this, please contact the minor coordinator.
