Curriculum

CURRICULUM ELEMENTS


As part of this project several curriculum elements have been developed and tested by TU Delft to allow students to (further) develop their transversal skills.

Each of these elements can either be embedded in a course or in some cases even be used as a stand alone course.

For each element we have provided as much documentation as possible so that it will be easy to implement.



All elements are OpenCourseWare meaning they are free to use.
