Study materials
For each course study materials are required. This can consist of reading material such as textbooks and readers/lecture notes, but it can also be drawing and/or model building materials.

In principle, the digital study guide states in the course descriptions which study materials are needed. However, we advise you to wait for the information (in the Course Manual) on Brightspace (the electronic learning environment of our courses) before you proceed to purchase the study materials. The information on Brightspace can usually be accessed a few days before the start of a course. By waiting for the information on Brightspace, you can be sure that you have the most up-to-date information.

For the purchase of books , we advise you to search the internet.

To get readers, there are two options:

  • The course coordinator has placed the reader in the Brightspace environment of the course where it can be downloaded.
  • The reader can be ordered via the WebEdu webshop. Read here how this works.

Drawing materials  can be purchased from Van Beek, our preferred supplier. Other possibilities are Gerstaecker, A.J. Prins or Waltman's Bouwshop.

If you have any questions about the study materials of a course, please contact the course coordinator of the course in question in the first instance. Contact details of the course coordinator can be found in the Digital Study Guide.
