Course Contents
During the Bachelor you have the possibility to follow the 30 ECTS of your Minor programme abroad at one of the partner universities that the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering has an agreement with (bilateral or TU wide). You remain enrolled at TU Delft during this period.

You can choose between a predefined minor (most courses already established) or a flexible minor (make your own proposal of courses and get approval from the Board of Examiners). Students are encouraged to choose a Minor outside the field of Aerospace Engineering, but the flexible minor abroad needs to meet the following criteria:
1. It is possible to complete the Minor abroad in one semester.
2. The proposed Minor has to be a coherent set of courses, which match preferably one or maximum two themes. For the approval of the courses, a strong argumentation must be made which shows that your personal intended learning outcomes match the learning objectives of the courses. This argumentation, in the form of a letter, must be submitted with your Minor abroad application.
3. The Minor is composed of 3rd- and, if applicable, 4th-year BSc courses of at least 20 ECTS. It is allowed to take a maximum of 10 ECTS from first and second year BSc courses to close a gap in pre-knowledge in other fields than aerospace. MSc courses are allowed if well motivated.
4. The Minor has no or minimum overlap with the content of the courses in the major.
5. With reference to criteria 3, the Minor is allowed to contain a maximum of 6 ECTS of cultural courses that relate to the host country OR language courses in the language of the country of the host institution. This is to support your integration into the host country. These 6 ECTS are not part of the 20 ECTS 3rd- or 4th-year courses. English is not allowed to be taken as a language course.

A Minor abroad can only be done at a university that the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering has an agreement with (bilateral or TU wide). An overview of exchange agreements can be found at: lr.tudelft.nl/exchange.
Study Goals
To prepare for the future interdisciplinary world of work, to broaden academic skills in a certain discipline and to obtain intercultural competences.
Education Method
- A nominal student: preferably having obtained all 1st- year courses in one year and having passed all 2nd- year courses according to schedule at the time of the selection
- A good argumentation to study abroad at a specific university in the form of a motivation letter
- A good resume
- Study progress and academic record
Courses abroad need to be concluded with a successful examination in order to obtain ECTS in Delft. Passed grades during the exchange period will be registered with a V (voldoende/sufficient) and also the actual external grades of the courses that have been completed abroad will be registered in Osiris.
Enrolment / Application
Every year in January a selection for study abroad (in the subsequent academic year) takes place by the exchange office of the faculty. Please check Brightspace for the specific deadlines and instructions on the application procedure.
