Students with a Bachelor’s degree from a university of applied sciences (hbo) do not directly fulfil all the admission requirements. In order to start a Master's programme you first need to do a pre-Master's programme to bring your knowledge up to the required level.

Admissible HBO degrees 

Admission to the (pre-)Master’s programme depends on your Bachelor’s programme. The following programmes related to Construction Management and Engineering are admissible:

  • Bouwkunde
  • Civiele Techniek
  • Bouwtechnische Bedrijfskunde
  • Climate and Management
  • Built Environment
  • Werktuigbouwkunde
  • Aviation

If you have completed an hbo programme that is not listed here, but are still interested in the CME programme, you could contact the pre-Master’s coordinator to discuss your options.

Brush up on English and Mathematics

Since the Master's programme in Construction Management and Engineering is taught in English and a profound level in Mathematics is indispensable, it is recommended that you freshen or brush up on your knowledge of English and Mathematics before starting with the transfer programme. Additional courses can be taken at, for example, Babel and Boswell Bèta or the Open Universiteit.


You can start the pre-Master’s during or after your Bachelor's programme. The application procedure and deadlines depend on the study route of your choice.
