New MSc CE programme, starting ’22-‘23

2021-2022 will be the last year that the master programme Civil Engineering (CE) will start in the current form. In September 2022, we will start with redesigned master programmes for CE. Please read this page carefully because it contains information on the effect this transition might have on your study programme and courses.

Please consult the TER Annex for the rules on compiling your study programme. Paragraph 1 of the TER Annex sets the rules and conditions for compiling your study programme and provides you with further information about e.g., ethics courses, electives and compulsory courses for each track. In this paragraph of the TER Annex you can also find more information on the submission of your Individual Study Plan (ISP). 

An overview was composed to clarify when courses of the current MSc CE programme and its tracks will be offered for the last time. We strongly advise you to carefully read the overview of courses below to take this into account for your Individual Study Plan (ISP).  

Each current programme (track) is divided into designated first year and designated second year courses. The columns 'Academic year 1' show when courses (in blue) are offered for the last time in the first year. Second year courses, in columns 'Academic year 2' (in blue), will be offered in 2021-2022 and in 2022-2023 for the last time. 

The directors of studies and master coordinators of the tracks took great care to offer first and second year courses in such a way that it is feasible for students to stay on track and prevent delays. Furthermore, the Board of Studies approved this overview.

General transition current to new MSc programmes

The table below shows the situation per academic year in the general. Courses that will be offered for the last time in the first year in 2021-2022 are designated first-year courses. Courses offered for the last time in the second year in 2022-2023 are designated second-year courses.

After one subsequent extra year in which 2 retakes will be offered, retakes of designated first and second year courses will no longer be possible. Students in the old programmes who still need to pass these courses, have to take equivalent (units of) modules of the new MSc programmes. Which (units of) modules will be an equivalent for courses in the old programmes, will be worked out this academic year. Moreover, please note that changes in the overview may still be possible.
