HOST INFORMATION:

With member universities in 18 countries, students at 50+ universities have the opportunity to study abroad. Global E³ exchanges about 200-250 students a year. Georgia Tech is a member of Global E³ and GT students may apply to go abroad for a semester or academic year to GE³ partner institutions such as TU Delft.

Delft University of Technology is a modern university of science and technology with a rich tradition. Ranked among the top universities of technology in the world (#18, QS 2012) TU Delft’s excellent research and education standards are backed by outstanding facilities, research institutes and research schools. TU Delft maintains close links with (inter)national industry, a strategic alliance contributing to the relevance of its academic programmes and career prospects for its students.

TU Delft is leading the way in research into technological innovations, contributing to scientific advancement in the interests of society, with research emphases in energy, environment, health and infrastructure.

TU Delft is located in the university district (TU-wijk) of the historic city of Delft in the Netherlands. Beyond the medieval church towers, there are many impressive university buildings, laboratories, classrooms and offices. They are built in the newly opened Mekelpark, which constitutes a truly green car-free heart of the campus where you can study in pleasant surroundings, take a leisurely stroll and meet your friends. Most of the streets around the campus heart are named after scholars who laid the foundation of the university’s success. The university’s philosophy, facilities and pleasant environment all contribute to its excellent academic atmosphere.

TU Delft works closely with international companies and universities. You will meet countless international students and staff here at the university. At present, approximately 14% of the student population is made up of foreign students; the average percentage in the MSc programmes is as high as 30%. The student body includes over 100 nationalities. Your programme will give you ample opportunity to broaden your international horizons while studying at one of the world’s leading research universities.

 
HOUSING
The TU Delft International Office can arrange housing for international MSc students, exchange students and international BSc students enrolled in the English taught BSc programme in Aerospace Engineering. After being admitted, you will receive information on how to arrange accommodation through the University. Accommodation is not guaranteed, however. The number of incoming international students is increasing, while the housing available remains limited.

TU Delft arranges accommodation in cooperation with the housing organisation DUWO. Both private and shared student units are available. All accommodation includes bed sheets, bedding and pillowcases, and a box with kitchen utensils for one. Almost all rooms are equipped with an internet connection and (shared) washing machines, and are close to the university (within three kilometres). There is some on-campus housing, but generally students live off campus.

Rents range from € 450,- to € 600,- per month, and accommodation can vary from private units to units with shared facilities. Rents include gas, water, electricity, an internet connection and municipal taxes.

***NOTE - the only program offered in English at the undergraduate level is in Aerospace Engineering, however, Delft now offers over 250 bachelors level courses offered in English.

Academic Info
In the course catalogue (www.studyguide.tudelft.nl) you will find all courses given in 2018-2019. Here is a link to courses, separated by major: click here

Some of our faculties have Bachelor-level minor programmes that are taught in English. A list is available on our website: thematical minors. TU Delft faculties cannot guarantee places on individual courses as they are subject to fulfillment of certain preconditions, availability and timetabling factors. Exchange students should therefore be flexible about courses they will be able to register for. We advise students to have alternative courses approved by their home institution academic advisors before their arrival at TU Delft. If you have any questions about courses you can send an e-mail to the faculty exchange coordinator concerned (see below for the addresses). TU Delft offers incoming students a two-week period after the start of each semester in order to make the  appropriate modifications in their learning agreement. Any such changes will have to be agreed and validated by all parties.
Credit for courses taken as a part of exchange programs is received by transferring the credits back to Georgia Tech. For more information about this, click here.  Here you will find the foreign credit approval form, the foreign credit approval form instructions, and a link to the registrar's Equivalency Table.

Contact your study abroad advisor for additional details about the essential functions of this particular study abroad program. Notify the Office of International Education and the Office of Disability Services about your accommodation needs as soon as possible, but at a minimum, we suggest at least six months before your expected departure.
