Graduation in 'Technology in Sustainable Development' (TiSD)
The graduation annotation 'Technology in Sustainable Development' was launched in September 2000.
The annotation is open to all* TU Delft master students that intend to integrate sustainable development into their graduation project and courses.
The graduation annotation covers both broader and deeper knowledge regarding Sustainable Development (SD) and technology. Sufficient depth is achieved by the demand that SD has to be a core issue in the graduation project. Within each department, a so-called ‘SD referent’ with specific expertise will assess the graduation project regarding the way SD has been tackled in the problem definition, the actual work and in the conclusions of the project. see list of TiSD referents.
The broadening of knowledge is guaranteed through a number of elective courses in the field of SD and the Course ‘Engineering for Sustainable Development’ (WM0939TU). Another goal of the latter obligatory course is to teach the students to apply a long term vision in determining their engineering priorities.
