Course information

Courses available to incoming exchange students at the Faculty of Applied Sciences – Academic year 2023-2024.

Example course proposals
The Faculty of Applied Sciences offers course proposals to incoming exchange students. These course proposals do not constitute compulsory sets of courses but are proposals to help you compose your exchange programme. Exchange students at the Faculty of Applied Sciences are strongly encouraged to finalise their course proposals in the application process of OSIRIS. The course choice will be confirmed during the admission process. Please carefully check the prerequisites of each course (including exchange research project) or minor programme. Also, please be aware that the course offering for the second semester will differ from the first semester.

Master’s courses are open to Master’s students and to Bachelor’s students who have completed or almost completed three years of study at the moment of application. For Bachelor's students two years may be sufficient, depending on their academic background.

Majority of credits at the Faculty of Applied Sciences
It is strongly advised to choose the large majority of course credits (min. 51%, preferably more) at the Faculty of Applied Sciences. This increases the chances of acceptance. We do not recommend mixing courses from various programmes and/or TUD faculties since this will likely lead to scheduling conflicts and overlap. Such scheduling conflicts are the responsibility of the student. No guarantees can be given before arrival regarding course options at other faculties (it depends on availability and time schedules). Always check the study guide well in advance for the prerequisites.

Overview course proposals
Below is an overview of the course proposals we offer for each study programme at our Faculty in the academic year 2023-2024. You can find additional course-specific information and expected prior knowledge for each course at  Please note that some minor changes might be made to the offered course proposals.

The academic year consists of two semesters (60 EC) and each semester (30 EC) is divided into two education periods of 10 weeks (15 EC). The first (Autumn) semester starts in early September (Introduction in August) and ends in late January. The second (Spring) semester starts in early February and ends in early July.

Exchange research project
It is possible to combine an exchange research project (of at least 15 EC) at one of the research groups within the Faculty of Applied Sciences with coursework. This applies to the following MSc programmes:
MSc Applied Physics
MSc Life Science & Technology
MSc Chemical Engineering

Please note your main supervisor has to be a staff member of the Faculty of Applied Sciences.
Also, please keep in mind the exchange research project has to be finalized and graded within the duration of your exchange semester at TU Delft.
