Study Abroad

Studying abroad is a challenge!

  • It offers you the opportunity to live in another country and to get to know another culture.
  • You will also experience how students in another country live and study.
  • It enhances your prospects in the labour market through gaining international experience.
  • It broadens your perception of your field of study through following courses or doing projects not offered by TU Delft.
  • It strengthens your language skills and sharpens your social and cultural skills.

TU Delft and the faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science offer students the possibility to spend a period of their degree programme abroad. This can be as an exchange student at a university, for an internship or thesis. Experience abroad is seen as beneficial to your university education and personal development.
