The mastertrack Structural Engineering and Design is part of the master Architecture, Building and Planning at the Eindhoven University of Technology.

Graduation at SED

The graduation project is the final course to be followed to finish the master program Structural Engineering and Design at TU/e. The total scope of the graduation project amounts to 45 ECTS; thus, an individual study charge of 1344 hours. The credits for the graduation project are obtained after examining the final presentation and graduation project report.

In order to kick-start your graduation project, Study association KOers and the SED-Unit will have 2 information meetings during an academic year in which a step-by-step approach and guideline will be presented. Additionally, a graduation guideline document is constructed by KOers specifically for the SED-graduation project. This document, which can be downloaded below, can serve as a guideline and checklist.


Every student who would like to start graduating should meet the requirements:
▪ The examination committee has approved the personal study plan of the student.
▪ The student has at least accumulated 55 ECTS and no more than 20 ECTS remain open. 

Regarding this last requirement, it should however be noted that it is strongly advised to finish all courses before starting the graduation project. 

When a student meets the requirements, he or she may start with the graduation project. Preparation of the graduation project preferably starts during the quartile before the graduation project is started officially. Visit the information meetings from KOers and the Structural Engineering and Design unit and start orientating on the graduation possibilities within the SED unit. Some topics for graduation projects are placed on our graduation projects page, but consulting with teachers is recommended to find many more possible topics.

For more information, we refer you to the graduation guidelines which can be downloaded below.
