Electric Power Systems

The Electric Power Systems student is required to accomplish a minimum of 30 ECTS per semester by taking mandatory as well as elective courses. Students need to get the approval of their complete course list by the track coordinators of both universities awarding the degree. An overview of the courses offered within the Electric Power Systems track is provided below.

Note: the listed electives courses only represent pre-approved courses by the track coordinators. Students are always invited to check the elective courses available at their universities and ask for permission to join any elective of their choice.

ET5S Internship** 6
**Students can choose do to an internship at industry and obtain ECTS for it. The faculty of Electrical Engineering at TU Delft  offers an internship of 9 to 15 ECTS, depending on the time the students will stay at a company. EWEM students are allowed to use only 6 ECTS of the total amount of credits in their study programme. The remaining ECTS will be extra-curricular, i.e. the student will end up with >120 ECTS (for example, if the student takes  an internship of 12 ECTS, the student will end up with 126 ECTS after completing the EWEM programme).
