Rotor Design

The Rotor Design student is required to accomplish an average of 30 ECTS per semester by taking mandatory as well as elective courses adding up to at least 120 ECTS for the complete master (DTU does not allow for obtaining more than 124.5 ECTS for the full master programme). 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 Rotor Design 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.
