When there is, in the judgement of the Graduation Committee, an exceptional level of student achievement and the proof of the student’s potential as an exemplary academic engineer, the Examination Committee can submit a reasoned proposal to the Director of Education to affix to the master’s degree the designation ‘with distinction’ (‘met lof’).
This must be requested two weeks beforehand, in order that the degree certificate ‘with distinction’ can be awarded immediately after the end of the examination. When there is uncertainty about the award, a degree declaration can be handed over, and the degree certificate (with or without ‘with distinction’) can be received at the Education Affairs Office within two weeks after the examination.
The EER contains the specific rules and conditions for graduation with distiction.
If these conditions are not completely satisfied, the chairman of the Graduation Committee of the student involved can still submit a proposal to the Examination Committee for the award of the designation ‘with distinction’. This Examination Committee makes a decision.
