Minor possibilities for EEMCS students

LDE Minor

Use your minor space of 30 EC optimally. EEMCS students can choose one thematic minor of 30 EC or two minors of 15 EC within Leiden-Delft-Erasmus minors, known as LDE-minors. When planning your studies, make sure you know when the minor is offered. For example, if you choose two minors composed of 15 EC, you will usually have to take into account for your planning, if both minors are only offered in quarter 1. 

Register for LDE minor of 30 EC or 2x LDE minor of 15 EC via http://www.tudelft.nl/minors

You need to follow the free minor procedure when your minor of 15 EC is supplemented with courses of 15 EC. 

Minor at another university

If you would like to take a thematic minor at a Dutch university (outside of LDE), you will have to make your own arrangements.  ontact the university you want to attend to find out if you are eligible for the minor in question. If you are admitted, you will have to request permission from the examination board of your BSc programme. (Through the application procedure of the free minor).  

You will also have to take care of your registration with the university concerned. At the end of the minor, you should send your list of marks to AEP-SPA-ESA@tudelft.nl so that they can be registered in your programme.

If you are a BSc EE student, you can choose to do an internship or project, for more information please enroll for course ET3000 on Brightspace.

Self-composed free minor (only for BSc EE and TW students)

It is possible that you have other, even more creative ideas about the content of a minor. In that case, it is possible to compose your own programme, a so-called free minor. This applies only to bachelor students from TW and EE.  

A free minor consists of a coherent package of courses taken at Delft University of Technology, another Dutch university or a foreign university.  

In order to be approved, an EEMCS free minor should meet several requirements, which can be found Paragraph 3 of the Teaching and Examination Regulations  - Minors for EEMCS students.
