Masters other faculties

CME

Construction, Management and Engineering is a multidisciplinary two-year Masters program offered by the faculties of Civil Engineering, Architecture and Technology, Policy and Management. It offers a wide range of courses that focus on the growing demand for reformation in the construction industry.

A degree in CME will provide the student with an extensive knowledge in the field of management and communication with courses such as cross-cultural management, financial engineering and project management playing an important role. The students participating in this program not only develop their engineering, problem solving and communication skills but also learn how to achieve desired changes in the building industry and assess the consequences for the construction process and it’s organization.

Study structure

There are four compulsory courses in the present core curriculum of the two-year MSc programme offered by the Delft University of Technology. The aim is to develop and broaden your knowledge on the field of these courses, which are implemented in the ‘cornerstones’. These are: Project Management, Process Management, Legal & Governance and Collaborative Design & Engineering.

Besides these four cornerstones there are also other compulsory courses in the CME Delft program. 

In the CME curriculum 19 ECTS can be filled with elective courses. The graduation thesis is 32 ECTS large. An overview of all courses for CME students can be seen here (LINK). 

Switching to CME

In order to switch from a TB-Bachelor's program to the master CME, students are required to take the course Hydraulic Engineering (CTB2410) as one of their electives in the master program.

3TU Education

The three Dutch technical universities (Eindhoven, Delft, Twente University) have joined forces in the 3TU federation. The federation maximizes innovation by combining and concentrating the strengths of the three universities in the fields of research, education and knowledge. The CME program is part of the 3TU federation and experiencing the benefits of this cooperation.

CME dispute

CME Dispuut is the study association for students of the MSc-education Construction Management and Engineering at Delft University of Technology. In 2007 CME has started as a 3TU-education where students can develop both engineering and management skills. In Delft the education is given at the faculties Civil Engineering and Geosciences, Technology, Policy and Management, and Architecture, in which Civil Engineering and Geosciences is leading. The study association CME Dispuut is the platform developed by students and for students with the goal to bring companies, students and universities closer together. The focus is on creating an environment in which companies and students are able to meet each other. Furthermore, the CME Dispuut has the responsibility to improve and maintain the quality of the education

TIL

The master programme of Transport, Infrastructure and Logistics is organised by the faculty’s TPM, Civil Engineering and 3ME. The world of transport, infrastructure and logistics is an engineering discipline which is divided in different sub-disciplines, languages and theory’s. Wouldn’t it be fantastic if city architects, policy makers and transport engineers would understand each other’s problems? The master programme of TIL tries to overcome these differences.

Study programme

Within the masters TIL you will get 27 ECTS collective courses, which are better known as fundamentals. In these fundamentals you will learn to look at transport systems from the perspectives of Civil, TPM and 3ME, and see how these perspectives are connected. After that, you will have to choose a specialization (27 ECTS) and individual courses (26-27 ECTS). Before you can strart graduating, you will do an interdisciplinary project. More information about this master programme is here

Specialization

Next to the fundamentals you have to choose a specialization. These are the four options:

  • Policy analysis
  • Transport network design
  • Traffic operations and control
  • Engineering and logistics

Electives

The third semester of 26 or 27 ECTS is mostly chosen by yourself, as long as you choose at least one course from each faculty. Next to that, you can do an internship, research projects or even go abroad. A list of electives can be found here 

Seminars

Whatever specialization or electives you do, you will always stay in contact with other TIL students through TIL-seminars. These are organized by TIL students and could be in the form of cases, excursions, workshops or readings.

Interdisciplinary project

Before you graduate, you will do an interdisciplinary project with students from other specializations. In this project, you can apply all you knowledge in a group project. If you want to know more about the programme, contact the coordinator John Baggen (j.h.baggen@tudelft.nl).

Dispuut Verkeer

Dispuut Verkeer is an organization who organizes evenst for the TIL students. For more information, check their website.

T&P

In densely populated countries such as the Netherlands hundreds of kilometres of traffic gridlock, air pollution, traffic accidents and delayed public transportation are all part of the daily fare. The MSc track Transport & Planning trains people to play a central role in resolving such problems. T&P engineers, for example, work on clever ideas to manage traffic flows and prevent congestion, they develop public transport systems or develop infrastructural plans. A characteristic of the topics on which they work is that these are often in the news and are high on the political agenda.

Programme
Within this track quantitative approaches to infrastructural planning play a central role, along with the analysis of systems for personal transportation and for road and rail traffic. 
The programme offers a challenging combination of professional practice and state-of-the-art research. Amongst other things you learn:  

How infrastructural planning is directly linked to economic growth and decline·                                   How to model environmental activities, analysing and translating them into traffic questions on infrastructural networks

·         How to model environmental activities, analysing and translating them into traffic questions on infrastructural networks

·         How to design both individual components and complete networks for road and rail infrastructures

·         How to model peoples’ choices, as well as the influence of transport systems on the choice of destination, the form of transport, the route and the departure time

·         How to manage traffic flows with, for example, systems for dynamic traffic management

·         How you can describe traffic movements mathematically 

 

In the European Top Five
If you opt for the MSc track Transport & Planning in Delft, you will be studying at one of the top five European traffic research institutes. An institute which strives to bridge the gap between research and practice and which, for this reason, works closely with authorities and companies.

The master variant Transport & Planning of the MSc Civil Engineering focuses on infrastructure, passenger transportation, and road and railway traffic. Key characteristic is the quantitative approach: we model the transport system in order to assess its performance and its effects. These models are used to develop new and innovative measures in the field of transportation.

The curriculum of the MSc variant Transport & Planning consists of three parts: 

·         Compulsory courses

·         Electives

·         MSc-Thesis

Compulsory courses (60 ects) which offers you a broad perspective of the field of Transport & Planning plus the necessary background knowledge and capabilities. A small set of courses allows you to specialise in topics you prefer by choosing two out of five of them.

Electives (20 etcs) which you choose from MSc-courses offered by Transport & Planning and any other MSc-courses. Other options are an internship (CIE4040-9, 10 ects, experience how it is to work in practice), an interdisciplinary project (CIE4061-09, 10 ects), and an individual research or design assignment (CIE5050-09, 10ects).

MSc-Thesis (40 ects) (CIE5060-09) where you demonstrate you’ve mastered the knowledge and skills taught in this MSc on a Transport & Planning topic you can select yourself.

Watermanagement

Water is essential, without it life on earth is impossible. But water can also be life threatening. Think about the destructive power of rivers that burst their banks or about polluted water sources. The Master Water management focuses on the understanding of natural surface and ground water flows and the management, control and utilization of them for the society. It includes both ground and surface water as well as  precipitation and wastewater. Water management considers not only the quantity of, but also to the quality of ground and surface water.

Within this variant attention will be paid to modelling, laboratory work, field study and the research of pilot plants.

The variant of Water Management offers the following specializations:

  • Sanitary Engineering;
  • Hydrology;
  • Water Resources Management and
  • Double Degree Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources Management

For more information: visit  the website of the department Water management.

Minor Water and Soil

For bachelor students of TPM it is possible to switch to the Master “Water Management” of the faculty Civil Engineering. This can be done by selecting the minor “Water and Soil” at the Faculty of Civil Engineering. This minor gives direct access to the master, but it is recommended to choose in addition the electives for the courses Water Management (CT3410-09) and Sanitary Engineering (CIE3420).
