Online and short courses

On-campus, intensive and highly specialized courses

IHE Delft conducts a wide range of short, intensive and highly specialized courses which are aimed at upgrading and refreshing the knowledge and skills of students, mid-career professional and senior experts.

For professionals

Short courses are meant for students or professionals with a specific area of interest and a limited amount of time. The focus and content of short courses vary from specialised and technical matters to challenges and approaches in management.

Didactical methods include lectures, assignments, individual or group exercises in the classroom, behind the computer, or in the laboratory. It’s all about active learning: each participant is responsible for his/her learning process and achievement. Fieldwork, excursions and field visits to relevant sites often are a part of a short course, allowing the participants to come into contact with practical examples of the theory offered. Through case studies, role-plays, debate and workshops, content is made more interactive, and experience that the participants already have is shared.

Admission Criteria

You should have a Bachelor Degree in a relevant field of study, preferably some years of working experience, and a good command of the English language to be admitted to the course. For a successful learning experience it is also essential to have basic skills in the use of computers and Office applications such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint).
