Module evaluation

Every module the Evaluation Comité evaluates the modules and courses. The Evaluation Comité writes a report based on the results of the evaluation. On this page you can find the link to the reports for both the Bachelor and Master of Mechanical Engineering.

You can read the evaluation of every module here!


Besides the core program of the bachelor ME consisting of 150 EC, each student is free to fill 30 EC worth of courses within his or her own distinctive possibilities. In modules 9 and 10 you are offered the opportunity to fill this space with minors. You can choose from (a mix of) the following options:

  1. High Tech Human Touch (HTHT) minors
  2. Crossing Borders, Educative minor, Board minor
  3. Study abroad
  4. In-depth minor (maximum of 1*15 EC)  
  5. Other Dutch universities or college

You are able to fill the 30 EC as you please. The HTHT minors consist of packages of 15 EC per quarter and it is always possible to do a package separately from the second package within the HTHT minor. So combining different 15 EC packages to form a 30 EC minor is possible. It is also possible to combine a package with a join-in or in-depth minor. As you can see, there are loads of possibilities to choose your minor.

If you would like more information regarding the first five options in the list above, just click on them. You can also find more information on the website of the UT. This site is just a brief summary of these topics. If you still have questions, please mail to or ask the commissioner of educational affairs (Noor) in the Newton room.


If you have concluded which minor you would like to do and this minor can be done on the UT, then you can register yourself on Osiris. If you want to find out how to register via Osiris, look here

Studying abroad

Each year hundreds of UT students choose for a study, internship or master thesis abroad. Meeting new people, experiencing different cultures and learning a new language are some of the most important reasons for this choice.  But an international experience also enhances your horizon and has a big influence on your personal growth. Please keep in mind the fact that arranging an international internship might take up six to twelve months. This means you need to start with the orientation in time. Always contact your faculty contact for specific information about a study or internship abroad. Bellow you will find 2 links which might help you with your orientation.

The universities (inside and outside Europe)

The registration form


During your master you need to do an internship and write a master thesis. This is possible both in the Netherlands and abroad. In order to give an insight into your quest to find a suitable internship or master thesis, Isaac Newton organizes a lunch lecture together with the faculty for both these issues. 

The Mechanical Engineering program has a site where you can find everything there is to know about internships. Also, you are able to find an archive with all the internships of the past 5 years. This gives you a nice overview of the possibilities when choosing an internship. Furthermore, vacancies of internships are presented on this site. Remember to start in time when searching for an internship, especially if you want to do this outside of Europe. To help orientate you further on which internship to choose, a booklet is provided here with experiences from students that have done internships in- and outside Europe.
