Common core courses (20 EC)

The common core contains courses common to all programs and contains two general engineering oriented courses being compulsory for all students. These courses are Profile Orientation and Academic skills and Systems Engineering; they run in respectively the first and second semester.

The common core further contains 7 fundamental courses introducing all students to the breadth of EE and CE. Of these 7 fundamentals, all students must select three courses.

Common core courses are fundamental and general in nature, and should be attractive to a relevant fraction of the students in multiple tracks. These courses are programmed in the first quarter of the academic year. Typically, they have three parts. These are (1) an introductory part that might be seen as a quick repeat of the expected prerequisite knowledge of incoming students (or as a quick introduction if some knowledge is still missing), (2) the main body, and (3) a part that makes a specific connection to the different tracks in the program. This last part may actually be track-specific.

The common core also contains the Master Kick-Off, this is an intensive multi-day event to introduce all new students to the program, to each other and several of the key persons of the program, as well as to initiate the studentís knowledge about the logistics and organizational aspects of the program.
