ELECTIVE OPPORTUNITIES BIT

Version: 31-03-2016

This hand-out is meant to give you insight in the elective opportunities which are known at the moment. For TEM students, the elective within the Business & IT programme consists of two components: the programme specific elective and the minor.

MINOR (2X 15 EC):

Your minor consists of two quartiles within which various course options are offered:

1.

In-depth modules: you take a module which elaborates on a computer science field;

2.

Join-in modules: You take a module which is part of another UT programme;

3.

High Tech Human Touch (HTHT) modules: These modules highlight social themes for which the UT, through research, devises solutions. These can be 15 EC modules as well as a combination of 30 EC modules;

4.

Exchange minor: studying at a foreign university;

5.

Three special module packages

1.

In-depth modules (15 EC)

At first, you can choose at maximum one in-depth module (15 EC). When you choose for an in-depth module, this means that next to this module, you have to choose a second module from the remaining offer. When you do not choose an in-depth module, you have to choose two modules from the remaining offer. The in-depth modules which can be chosen:

·

201500066 Serious Gaming (Q1)

·

201500025 Web Science (Q2)

·

2016xxxxx High Tech Talent Management in a Global Context (Q2)

Join- modules (15 EC)

As said before, these are modules which are part of another programme and which you can join. These are not only offered in Q1 and Q2, but also in Q3 and Q4.

In the join-in matrix, you can see which join-in modules you, as BIT student, can take.

3.

High Tech Human Touch modules (1x or 2x 15 EC)

Besides, there are also so-called High Tech Human Touch (HTHT) modules. These are only offered in Q1 and Q2.

4.

Exchange Minor (1x or 2x 15 EC)

The UT offers the possibility to go international. For this there are two possibilities, for which the examination board have to be asked approval before beginning:

The first option is taking 15 or 30 EC of courses at a foreign university, by means of an exchange minor. For these courses, the same rules as for taking courses within the UT apply: A maximum of 15 EC can be deepening. The other 15 EC have to be broadening: i.e. differ substantially from the BIT programme. There cannot be overlap with modules from your own programme. See the appendix for a step-by-step plan.

5.

Crossing Borders (2x 15 EC)

The second option to go abroad, is the minor Crossing Borders. This minor can be used in two ways:

1.

You carry out an individual assignment (worth 15 or 30 EC) abroad.

2.

You join your study association’s study tour. In this case, the minor consists of two 15 EC modules.
