““Where scientists study the world as it is, engineers create the world that never was.””
Theodore von Kárman


This two-year, full-time Master’s programme (120 credits) will prepare you for your future profession based on one of seven specialisations: Aeronautics (AERO), Design and Manufacturing (DM), Energy and Flow (EF), High-Tech Systems and Materials (HTSM), Maintenance Engineering and Operations (MEO), Personalised Health Technology (PHT) & Smart and Sustainable Industry (SSI). Within the programme you compose your own programme within which a specialist area is recognisable. You choose 30 EC of core courses and 30 EC of elective courses. In the elective courses there is an option for an interdisciplinary focus: a maximum of 3 courses outside of the ME MSc curriculum*.
Within the elective courses 5 EC can be used for courses that are part of the preparation of the study tour. Any additional EC of the study tour can be registered under additional courses.
The graduation project (45 EC) is in the area of the specialisation. The internship (15 EC) does not have to be in the specialisation area, but does require the approval of the UT internship supervisor. The final programme must be approved beforehand by the specialisation coordinator and the programme director.

Unlike the Bachelor’s programme, where research and methodology are mainly taught in a separate course, research is an integral part of many courses throughout the Master’s programme. These courses are geared towards creating a thorough basis for fundamental research in the specialisation of your choice. Read more about research.

Contact Hours

Some courses are not taught according to a fixed timetable; instead, lecturer and student agree on the most suitable times for teaching and assessment. Normally, students have 15 contact hours each week in the first year of the programme. Contact hours are reduced to a maximum of five hours each week in the graduation project phase.

The programme is only available on a full-time basis. Students who wish to make other arrangements should contact the academic counsellor, ir. M.J.B. Duyvestein.
