The aim of the UNITECH International programme is to integrate an engineering degree with international experience and a solid basis in business and management. The TU Delft offers the programme for master student and bachelor students that are in their final year.
The UNITECH International programme begins with a one-week Start-Up course at the end of August, organised jointly for the UNITECH students from all eight Universities.
All UNITECH students meet again for the Midterm week (first week in January) and for the End-of-Year event at the end of August. Apart from this common core, the programme content is individually tailored for each student as a combination of engineering courses and business and management studies.
The UNITECH International programme uses the European Credit Transfer Scheme (ECTS) as measure of academic study units. In addition, each month of internship is worth 10 credits for the UNITECH programme. The student must achieve a minimum of 90 credits during the UNITECH International exchange period. At least 30 of these credits must be from academic studies at the host university abroad, where students spend a full semester. Another 30 credits must be from the internship. For successful completion of the programme a minimum of 20 academic credits in business and management courses is required. These can be obtained at the host university or at the TU Delft before and after the year abroad. The UNITECH Joint Modules also count as 10 management credits.
The duration of the UNITECH International Programme is one year, divided between academic work at one of the partner Universities and a minimum of 3 months internship in one of the partner companies.
