Electives

The elective part of the curriculum consists mainly of courses. In general, courses can be chosen freely from the lists provided here. Other courses may only be selected after approval by the examinations committee in advance (you may consult the study advisor). In some cases, an internship of 15 credits may be part of the electives.

Some courses, up to a maximum of 18 credits, may be prescribed as homologation courses to make up for deficiencies in former education.

The following table lists courses that can be selected as elective without prior approval of the Examinations Committee.

2IM02/1BM02

Internship 3

a 

1 This literature study can only be followed by students that will perform their master project in the Information Systems group of IE&IS.

2 Capita selecta can only be taken after prior approval by the responsible lecturer.

3 In case the internship is done within the Mathematics and Computer Science department the code is 2IM02. In case the internship is done within the Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences department the code is 1BM02. The internship can be followed only by permission of the internship coordinator. 

Admission to seminars, capita selecta, master project

Capita selecta courses are occasional educational elements, often with a research flavor. They may be experimental courses, a lecture series given by a visitor, or a special individual assignment as a preparation on future research. The capita selecta can be followed only by permission of the responsible lecturer. Students do not have a “right” to do these courses, but they may be granted the possibility.

The seminars, capita selecta, and master project are only open to students that are fully admitted. This means that they are not available for students that do not yet have their BSc diploma or students that did not yet complete the premaster. Other students that have deficiencies (e.g. uncompleted homologation courses) cannot start the master project.
