Electives and coaching

In addition to your major you can choose electives that will accentuate your study program. You can opt for subjects from another field that will help broaden your knowledge or you can choose to go deeper in your own field, for example with elective packages like Molecular Systems and Materials Chemistry, or Chemical and Process Technology. But you can also choose elective courses, like nanotechnology or biochemistry. By shaping your study yourself, you select the societal challenges you want to help solve.  As a TU/e graduate you will have a powerful analytical capacity, you will be innovative and a problem-solver as well as be able to work with people from all over the world.

Experienced TU/e coaches are by your side to offer personal advice from the very start of your study, from the moment you enroll when you and your coach look at the major that best suits you and how you can best supplement this with your electives. In this way you create your own study program, one that fits your interests and ambitions. And if you should find out during your first year that a different major suits you better, then you can look at the options with your coach for switching major within this first year.

Going abroad
Following approval from the Examinations Committee, it may be possible for you to follow part of your electives at a different university in the Netherlands or abroad. Especially the third year of the Bachelor's program offers this opportunity.
