Below you will find the Exchange Study Packages (ESP) which can be chosen by exchange students in Civil Engineering. Make sure you choose a package in your own study level (B = bachelor, M = master)!
Note 1: in your application procedure you will be asked which courses you would like to do. Make sure you do not mention the name of the ESP but rather the individual codes and names of the different courses/modules of this particular ESP (codes are all given below).
Note 2: the ESP's are composed of modules of the regular BSc curriculum or courses of the regular MSc curriculum. It is not possible to choose only certain parts of the BSc modules.
Note 3: the MSc programme of Civil Engineering & Management is currently being re-structured. If the information on the website is changed after you have selected your course, do know that you can always change your list of courses once you have arrived here.

alternative selection

Individual course package (Level: M)

Although we strongly prefer you to choose one or two of the above mentioned Exchange Study Packages, it might be that you would really like to choose your own set of courses. In that case, take a look at this overview of courses of the MSc programme Civil Engineering & Management, grouped by profile/specialisation. Clicking on a module or course name in that overview will lead you straight to our Course catalogue, in which you can find more information regarding the concerned course. Do pay attention to the required pre-knowledge! Also note that MSc courses require a finished BSc degree in the same or similar field, which is not always mentioned.

Realise that if you choose your own individual course package rather than the ESPs defined above:

  • the assessment of your application will take more time. The assessment time increases if you choose courses belonging to an educational programme of a different faculty; your application will have to be assessed by different members of staff.
  • you increase the risk of having overlap in your lectures. The risk is the lowest if you choose courses within a specialisation, and increases if you choose courses of different specalisations or even different educational programmes. Since the schedules are published a few weeks before the block starts, overlap cannot be checked months in advance.
