TU Delft minors for students from Leiden and Rotterdam

Are you a student from Universiteit Leiden or Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam and looking to take a minor at Delft University of Technology? This page contains information about the range of minors offered, the registration process and other practical matters.

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 of 15 and 30 EC in which you can either broaden your knowledge or become more specialised.  

Do you study at another (Dutch) educational institution? For more information, please visit the page for External students.

Minor offer

TU Delft offers more than fifty minors each year. These are all offered in the first semester and are mainly 30 credits (EC). TU Delft does not offer any minors in the second semester.

These can both broaden and deepen your knowledge as part of your degree programme. The period in which you can register may differ from your home institution. So have a good look at when you can apply. 

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.
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. 

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. 


Information about applying for minors in 2023-2024 can be found here from mid-March 2023.

It is no longer possible to register for a Delft minor.

You do not need to register for the separate courses in the minor in which you are enrolled. A minor registration is sufficient. For more information, see the information page Registration for Courses and Exams.
