Student mobility

Information for incoming students

The Faculty of Engineering Technology comprises three engineering disciplines: Industrial Design, Civil and Mechanical Engineering. These three disciplines are covered in our BSc programmes. Most BSc programmes are taught in Dutch, while all MSc programmes are taught in English. Exchange students at a final year BSc level are allowed to follow MSc level courses.

To make choosing your courses somewhat easier the UT offers Exchange Study Packages. These ESPs are balanced, coherent, well-structured and self-contained sets of courses at a final year BSc or first year MSc academic level. For more information about the Exchange Student Packages and choosing courses visit the website on each engineering discipline.
