During your Master’s in Mechanical Engineering, you will collect a total of 120 EC within two years. You will follow (elective) courses related to the specialisation in Design & Manufacturing, do an internship and you will end your Master’s by writing your master’s thesis. What your curriculum will look like exactly, depends on the choices you make within this specialisation.
Number of EC
You can choose courses of the Master’s in Mechanical Engineering, but you can also choose (a maximum of three) courses offered by other programmes at UT. Of course, you can also choose more of the specialisation courses listed above.
Examples of electives that perfectly fit this specialisation:
In the first quartile of your second year, you will do an internship, as preparation for the professional field. If you are a student entering from a university of applied science (Dutch HBO), you will follow 15 EC master’s courses, instead of doing an internship.
You will finish your Master’s in ME with your master’s thesis.
During your Master’s in Mechanical Engineering, you will gain practical experience by doing an internship for approximately three months. There are many options open to you when it comes to choosing your internship. If you are a student entering from a university of applied science (Dutch HBO), you will follow 15 EC master’s courses, instead of doing an internship.
Examples of internships our students took on:
- · Design of small but commercially profitable production runs at Philips
- · Tackling clogging in heat exchangers at Royal Vaassen
- · Inventory and reduction of stock materials at Thales
You will end your Master’s with your master’s thesis. The choice of your graduation subject is largely up to you. Most students complete their graduation project at an external organisation, either in the Netherlands or abroad. This is a highly recommended option since it is a great opportunity to combine your academic skills with experience in the professional field.
