Course programme approval
A choice of courses becomes a course programme once it has been approved and signed by the programme mentor. The programme mentor has the authority to refuse his approval even if the choice of units is within the limitations of the requirements listed. In some cases the admissions board may issue a certificate of admission with additional requirements.

EIT Digital Master School: Human Computer Interaction and Design
Students whose admission to the HMI programme is derived from, or constitutes a part of, their admission to a special programme within the EIT Digital Master School (EIT HCID) may have a course programme which deviates from the requirements listed. The requirements and programmes for EIT students can be found under EIT Digital HCID programme.
