Courses 2016-2017

Course programme 2016-2017

General outline

The total size of the Master’s programme is 120 EC spread over 2 years. The first year is filled with regular courses, some of which are obligatory, some can be chosen within certain constraints, and some of which can be chosen freely (albeit subject to approval by the programme mentor). The second year may contain some more courses or a 20 EC internship and ends with the 30 EC final project, and the 10 EC 'research topics', which is usually a literature study as a preparation to the final project.

The Telematics programme does not have pre-defined specializations to choose from. Instead, tuning your programme to the specific area within Telematics that you are most interested in, is done on an individual basis, in discussion with the programme-mentor.

The admission committee may have imposed extra constraints on your study programme, to ensure a good match between your bachelor programme and the Telematics master programme: 1.Homologation courses: these are courses that you have to include in your programme, in the space for free courses. Thus, they fall within the 120 EC of the total programme. 2.Deficiency or pre-master courses: these are courses that you have to do in addition  to the 120 EC of the regular programme.
