Thematic minor overview
The minoroffer for 2023-2024 will be available from mid-March 2023. Until then, you can get an impression of the current year's offer.
On this page you will find a list of minors that will be offered during the 2022-2023 academic year.
(Re)Imagining Port Cities: Understanding Space, Society and CultureIn this minor, students link research and design from multi-disciplinary, cross-cultural perspectives with a focus on the future of Rotterdam Harbour.
Advanced PrototypingLearn to build functional, high-fidelity prototypes with the latest materials and digital fabrication techniques.
The Advanced Prototyping Minor brings together the most recent agile manufacturing methods and emerging materials.
African Dynamics (LDE)This LDE minor is a valuable opportunity to build your understanding of integrated and sustainable development approaches in Africa from leading academics of the universities of Leiden, Delft, and Rotterdam, as well as guest speakers.
Airport Development Minor(former Airport of the Future) LR-Mi-228 The minor Airport Development is jointly organised by the faculties of Industrial Design Engineering (IDE), Civil Engineering and Geosciences (CEG), Technology, Policy and Management (TPM), and Aerospace Engineering (AE). The minor is aimed at engineering students from all bachelor programmes offered at TU Delft, who are interested in the design, planning, management and operational aspects of airports. An airport operates in a competitive, dynamic, complex, and unpredictable environment. Development and growth of any large airport is to a large extent determined by its ability to balance business realities, long-term expansion requirements, and environmental and social demands. The minor Airport Development is oriented to those engineering students who would like to understand how airports are designed, planned and operated in such a complex and uncertain environment. The issues confronting airports, both at the operational and strategic level, are truly multi-disciplinary in nature. The minor Airport Development is able to cover the entire multidisciplinary field of airport development, planning and operation through clustering of knowledge from various branches of science and technology available within the TU Delft. The minor focuses on the actual problems that can arise in airport design and operation, and on the practical effective ways to deal with them. Theory and methodology appear only to the extent that they are relevant and useful. Participating students need no specific experience or skills to successfully complete the minor. The domain of airport design, planning and operation involves a wide range of disciplines. By harnessing all of TU Delft’s expertise in the domain of airport development and operation, the full range of aspects can be covered within the minor in a comprehensive and coherent manner, including airport landside accessibility issues (CEG), passenger and baggage flows in an airport terminal (IDE), airside issues (AE) and logistics (TPM). Students participating in the minor will be exposed to the full array of multi-disciplinary issues, and will be part of a multi-disciplinary team, working together to produce “total solutions” for the key airport issues. In this sense, the minor Airport Development provides an appealing opportunity to look beyond the boundaries of their own discipline.

Register for this minor Open registration Course overview See below Contact Contact information For whom? The minor Airport Development is designed for all TU Delft students, and students from Leiden and Rotterdam in the following programs: Econometrics and Operational Research (EUR), Informatics & Economy, Molecular Science & Technology, Physics, Astronomy, and Mathematics. What will you learn? After successful completion of the minor program “Airport Development”, a student must be able to: Demonstrate understanding of the system concepts that address the technological, operational, logistic, economic, regulatory, safety, security and environmental problems associated with the development of airports. Implement and integrate regulatory requirements and adopted international airport design standards Understand and deconstruct the complex interrelationships and interactions among airport capacity, airport demand, policy changes, investments, and environmental issues and the effects that changes in any of these can have on airport profits and performance Structure and formulate problems related to the design of airport airside and landside facilities and logistic processes Deploy computer simulation software packages and information management systems used in industry in the planning and design of airports in order to generate and synthesize the information needed to support the decision making process Creatively solve problems in airport design, planning and operation Make informed tradeoffs among conflicting objectives and requirements of the various airport stakeholders and policy makers Judge the right balance between economic, environmental and social interests in sustainable airport development. Communicate, report and operate effectively as a member of a (multi-disciplinary) team Course overview The Minor (30EC) is composed of the following courses: Air Transportation (3EC) Airport Planning, Design and Operations (4 EC) Logistics 2 (5 EC) Landside accessibility of Airports (6 EC) Strategic Planning for Airport Systems (6 EC) Designing an Airport (6 EC) The minor code is LR-Mi-228-year TPM students who follow this minor will do the course AE1110-I Introduction to Aerospace Engineering I instead of Locgistics 2. TPM students need to register for the exam with course code AE1110-M. Register for this minor The registration for a minor takes place in two periods via OSIRIS.

ArchineeringThe minor focuses on materialisation as an essential part of any design product. In a number of intense and hands-on prototyping exercises more insight in the personal design process and integration of technology and design will be acquired.
Architecture Presentation - Visions ReviewedDuring this minor, students will develop understanding of spatial design as the creation and communication of narratives. Through a sequence of (re)presentation exercises, students develop skills to produce and present, inspiring and relevant imagery to convey the stories behind projects.
Bend and BreakIn deze minor ga je aan de slag met ontwerpproblemen voor dragende constructies en kritische onderdelen uit weg- en rail infrastructuur, en leer je over specifieke eigenschappen van primaire en gerecyclede bouwmaterialen.
Biomedical EngineeringAlways wondered how technology can improve health care?
The minor emphasizes the relation between medicine and engineering. Lectures, also from physicians, and exercises will highlight the recent developments.
