As a student of this Bachelor College you get plenty of scope to compose your own study on the basis of your interests and ambitions. Do you want to go deeper in a specific subject or would you rather explore the breadth by combining different subjects? It's up to you!
Plenty of scope to compose your own study
The core program is the largest part of your bachelor's program. It provides a solid foundation for your master's program. The core program consists of 125 credits, including the Bachelor End Project.
During your studies, you will be given a lot of elective space. 25% of your study time is spent on courses of your own choice, within or outside your department. This allows you to develop your own profile as an engineer. The elective space includes 45 credits.Read more
As an engineer, it is important to be aware of the impact technology has on people and society. During your bachelor's program, you will therefore follow an Impact of Technology program (ITEC). In your elective space, you can choose additional ITEC courses.
Professional & Personal Development
We believe it is important that you develop your own professional identity during your studies. You do this by acquiring academic knowledge and course-specific skills, but also by developing self- and social awareness. To help you do this, you will follow a Professional & Personal Development (P&PD) course during your studies.
The Bachelor College curriculum is being adjusted. All students starting their bachelor’s program at TU/e after September 1, 2023, will follow the new curriculum. The degree to which the curriculum will change will vary by program. In some programs, a lot will change; in other programs, the changes will be smaller.
If you started your bachelor’s program before September 1, 2023, you will continue your program according to the current curriculum. If you are or will be delayed in your studies, a transitional arrangement will usually apply.
You can find the complete transitional arrangement here:
- Transitional arrangements PER 2023/2024
- Explanatory notes transitional arrangements PER 2023/2024
- Transitional arrangements for basic courses 2023/2024
References to PER articles may still change.
