In the first year of the master's program Mechanical Engineering you will be assigned to a specialization based on your own motivation. In consultation with your graduation professor you select your complete set of courses. This selection depends on the master track you have chosen. Besides these technical courses the master's program also offers you the opportunity to select two courses in the field of professional skills. The individual space allows you to follow additional courses, to take part in an internal research project or to extend your traineeship or graduation project. When you have (almost) completed your courses and your traineeship, you can start your graduation project. 

For Dutch students it is possible to start the master's program on September 1st or on February 1st. International students can only enroll in September.
