Admission requirements

General Information
A lot of general information about fees, housing, etc. can be found on the Delft University of Technology MSc website. This site includes an online application form which you may print out and use. Any person with a university undergraduate degree from outside the Delft University of Technology wishing to be considered for the next generation of Offshore Engineering MSc Degree participants must complete and submit the above standard application form as well as supporting documentation to the university's Student Facilities Center. There is no fee for processing this application.

All Delft MSc curricula require at least two full years (at least 120 ECTS credits) of effort starting in August (for an introductory summer course) or September - the official start of the academic activities - of each year. The entire Offshore Engineering MSc curriculum is taught in English; all reporting and communications are expected to be in this language as well.

In the first MSc year, one concentrates largely on classes, exercises and a bit of lab work. One may wish to schedule optional industrial practice in the intervening summer provided that sufficient academic progress is made during that first year. The second year is devoted initially to a few remaining courses and to a thesis which lasts 6 to 8 calendar months.

The above website also gives an indication of course costs. As a rough guide, a two-year stay in Delft will have a total all-in cost of about 30 000 Euros. This includes books, tuition, fees, living expenses and insurance.

Note that English proficiency as measured by a paper-based TOEFL score of at least 550 or a computer based TOEFL score of at least 213 is required for admission. One's overall grade point average should be at least 75% of the maximum as well.

A solid background in mathematics as well as good basic background in solid and fluid mechanics is equally essential. The university's Board of Examiners will assess your qualifications and experience and inform you of their decision about your admission suitability.

Offshore Engineering has no scholarships of its own. Details about organizations offering scholarships and fellowships are available online. The NUFFIC website is the most informative about this. The university does not mediate in obtaining funding for students. It is therefore important that you apply for funding to the various organizations in a timely fashion.

Bachelor degree of a Dutch Polytechnic (TH)
A candidate with a TH degree in Mechanical Engineering, Marine Technology or Civil Engineering can be admitted conditionally if he or she has completed the BSc programme within 4 years with good results. The intake coordinator of the board of examiners is responsible for the admission decision.
These candidates must follow the so-called pre-masters programme, consisting of a number of BSc courses. While taking the pre-master programme, these students may follow some MSc courses.
