You can register for electives in Osiris, via MyTU/e. If you have registered for more electives than you can attend, please deregister in Osiris.

When less than 16 students have registered for an elective upon the closing of the registration period (5 working days before Q1 and 15 working days before Q2, 3 and 4), the course might be cancelled. The students involved will be contacted by the Educational Office so they can register for another course.
