12 Electives Restricted electives max. 30 ects to be approved by mentor Free electivesAny graduate course at TU/eAny graduate course at another Dutch university (for EU students only and subject to admission)Except where indicated or if there is a clear overlap with an IE undergraduate course or a graduate course already listedAt least 10 credits in C category (business / social sciences)/School of Industrial Engineering
13 Mentor system Select mentor at the end of your first semester When you study according to the planned speedOne semester later if you will need 2.5 years for the whole program, and so onRole of mentor:assistance with composition of study programapproval of restricted electivesadvise on study, incl international semesterassistance with selection and preparation of thesis topic and thesis proposal (and company if needed)supervision of thesis projectThe thesis topic has to match with research interests of the mentor/School of Industrial Engineering
14 Mentor matching procedure You should register for the mentor matching procedure in the semester you want to take part via OASE, course code 1MC00Course 1MC00 will be opened for registration on 1 March (or closely after that date). Registration will be closed one month laterThere will be information sessions of the various research areas (to be announced). Look already at mentor pMentor interviews 3 subsequent weeksMentor/student decisions and submission of forms: next 4 weeksIn case of a match, the student fills in the mentor selection form and hands it in at the education administration office to definitely formalize the mentor selection.Subsequently, students that have not yet found a mentor, can continue to approach those mentors with leftover capacityStudents that have not found a mentor by the end of the semester, will be allocated a mentor/School of Industrial Engineering
