Study load and study program for 2017-2018

Study program and learning agreement

Exchange students and free movers should choose their courses from our departmental master study program “Architecture, Building and Planning” (ABP). The program for the academic year 2017-2018 will be published in our online education guide on April 1, 2017.

The study program ABP is fully English-language, and can be accessed as follows:

Go to the Education guide, Download “courses in quartiles……”  By clicking the course code you will be directed to a page with more information on that specific course.

You are advised to download our departmental student mobility information sheet (see download on the right). This information sheet provides students with additional information they will need to compose their TU/e study plan.

Students that would like to enroll in a course from another TU/e department always need the prior consent of the department of the built environment’s student exchange coordinator. Furthermore their attendance to that course also needs to be approved by the student administration office of the TU/e department concerned.

Please note that our courses are always subject to availability, and that incidentally our course program and the schedule may slightly change during the academic year.

Design studios
Students that would like to do a master project in the field of architecture will later on be given the opportunity to indicate a preference for one of the available projects (design studios) in this field. Although we will take all preferences into account as far as possible, no rights can be derived from this. Since all projects are equipollent, students should regard every architecture studio as a suitable alternative.

Seminar Urbanism and Architecture (course code 7QX5M0)
Our regular (degree) students are compelled to take this seminar as part of their TU/e study program. For this reason our regular students have priority with seminar enrollments over the exchange students. Furthermore not all seminars that are scheduled in a semester may be suited for international students (f.i. when they include Dutch literature search). For the group of exchange students this could mean that some restrictions may occur. If so, all exchange students that have chosen a seminar as part of their learning agreement will be informed accordingly at the start of their exchange semester. As all seminars have the same course code, students can only sign up for one (1) seminar!

Research internships and MSc thesis projects
If you have been accepted for a research internship, or for work on your master / PhD thesis, you should indicate the following information in your learning agreement: the name of your TU/e supervisor, project title, and number of ECTS credits agreed upon
. The information provided will be verified with the academic staff member that has accepted you for the research project or thesis project.
