Types of Education

The TU/e has different types of education. Following are the most common types: 

  • Lectures in which an instructor will explain the theory course;
  • Instruction or tutorials where you work under supervision of a teacher or tutor on assignments, this is mostly for the mathematical subjects;
  • Group projects in which you work together with your fellow students in groups;
  • Challenge Based Learning (CBL)/Design-based education (OGO) where you apply theory in open challenges or assignments;
  • Video lectures are online representations of a live lecture. These are available through TU/e video lecture catalog (login required) .

Note: Sometimes it is indicated on forehand that you should use your notebook for a course.
