MSc Programmes

IHE Delft offers four 18-month Master of Science programmes, with a total of 17 specializations. Furthermore, we offer a fifth, 12-month Master of Science programme, which focuses on non-sewered sanitation. 

All Delft-based programmes start, as planned, in October 2020. Depending on the future situation regarding the coronavirus, we may start the Delft based programmes with online modules, with the anticipation that all courses will resume in a face-to-face mode from the beginning of 2021.

The application deadline is 01 August 2020.

In case you wish to apply for financial assistance please note that application deadlines for scholarships are usually much earlier.

IHE Delft is involved in three European Joint Master Degree programmes which are specializations of the MSc programmes listed above. These programmes will start in September. Check the individual website of the programme of your choice and learn more about the curricula, partner institutes and deadlines.
