Courses

The Master of Science Civil Engineering at Delft University of Technology is divided into tracks, one of which is Hydraulic Engineering. It comprises five specialisations, four of which are divided into fields. The general outline of the programmes of all seven fields contains four main constituents. These are: an ethics course, tracked-linked courses, special subjects (extra courses, an internship (CIE4040-09), a multidisciplinary project (CIE4061-09) or an additional thesis (CIE5050-09)) and a MSc thesis. This applies to all Civil Engineering master tracks.

Track-linked compulsory courses

The compulsory programme for each field within the Hydraulic Engineering track consists of two blocks of courses, a common block for all fields and a block of field-specific courses. The common block consists of five courses adding up to 24 EC. These courses are:

code subject EC’s
CIE4130 Probabilistic Design and Risk Management 4
CIE4305 Coastal Dynamics 1 6
CIE4310 Introduction to Bed, Bank and Shoreline Protection 4
CIE4325 Ocean Waves 6
CIE4345 River Dynamics 1 4

Field-linked compulsory courses

For all fields, Coastal Engineering, Environmental Fluid Mechanics, River Engineering, Ports and Waterways, Dredging Engineering, Hydraulic Structures and Flood Risk respectively, the compulsory courses are stated below. These are taken from the MSc Hydraulic Engineering Prospectus and are prone to changes. For an up-to-date overview of the compulsory courses, we refer to the Prospectus of 2017-2018 or the Brochure of 2018-2019. Please note that you should conform to the Brochure of the year that you first enrolled in the Master’s programme. If you any questions concerning this, please contact the Curriculum Coordinator at masterHE-CEG@tudelft.nl.
