Honours Programme 20 EC extracurricular

Students who have shown an excellent performance during the first semester (no fails and a weighted average mark of 7.5 out of ten or higher) are invited to register for the Delft University of Technology Honours programme for outstanding Master’s students (HPM):

  • Based on the above criterion and their HPM proposal with their project description, students will be selected and admitted to the HPM by the director of studies or an HPM coordinator or HPM committee established by the director of studies.
  • Students can only apply for the extra honours programme during the first year of their master programme.

The HPM will comprise at least 20 EC:

A common part of 5 EC 

  • UD2010 Critical Reflection on Technology (5 EC) or
  • UD2012 Business Leadership for Engineers (5 EC)         

An individual part of 15 EC

The individual part is up to you. You may try to broaden your scope or seek in depth projects at your own or another faculty (individually or in a group/mono disciplinary or multidisciplinary).

For example:

  • Write a paper with publication
  • Mini project not related to the thesis or with a different supervisor
  • A project not in the same track/specialisation
  • PhD courses
  • Extra courses from other tracks/specialisation, The courses must be a coherent package 

This programme gives you the opportunity to collaborate with experts and to have personal supervision in an early stage of your master programme. The end product must be a scientific paper or report.

To receive the Honours Programme TU Delft certificate you have to finish your regular master programme and the honours programme within two years. The Board of Examiners will be responsible for assessing whether all the requirements of the HPM have been met.

If you want to finish your master programme ‘cum laude’ only the grades for the regular programme are taken into account.
