3. Electives


Electives are included in the MSC TIL programme for two reasons:
- They allow you to tailor the programme to your requirements;
- They support the interdisciplinary character of the programme.

A wide range of courses is offered, including those from (other) specialisations. You are obliged to choose electives from T&P, T&L, TEL and from other TIL related fields, such as air transport (in Electives C&O), maritime transport, sustainability, ethics, etc. (in Electives TIL).


You must choose at least one course from each of the following categories:

  • Electives T&P - Transport and Planning
    MSc Civil Engineering, track Transport and Planning.
  • Electives T&L - Transport and Logistics
    MSc COSEM, domain specialisation Transport and Logistics.
  • Electives TEL - Transportation Engineering
    MSc Mechanical Engineering, track Transport Engineering and Logistics.

You must also choose at least one course (as external elective) from one of the following categories:

  • Electives C&O - Control and Operations

  • Electives U - Urbanism 
    MSc Architecture, Urbanism & Building Sciences.
  • Electives TIL - Other TIL fields
