1. Program of the ABP Masters Course1.1 GeneralIn accordance with article 1.5 of the Education and Examination Regulations, the course, theexaminations, and the Final Examination are held in English.For detailed information on the Masters specializations and the Masters project work, see theDepartment internet site where much of this information is to be found:http://w3.bwk.tue.nl/nl/organization/.1.2 Key characteristics of the courseEducation in the Architecture, Building, and Planning (ABP) Department is research-driven anddesign-oriented. Research and design activities are interwoven in the program of education. Thestudent is taught to approach relevant architectural problems in a constant interaction betweenanalysis and synthesis. This means that the education is not, a priori, aimed at training the student fora specific profession. In the context of a specific provision of architectural disciplines, the student istaught to be able to take a radical approach to problems and innovations (research) and to be able todevelop integral solutions (design).The ABP courses at the TU/e are characterized by their interdisciplinary nature. In the variousspecializations of the Masters courses, the student is given the opportunity to follow subjects in otherGroups within and outside the Department. In this way, the student is able to learn from within his 1own discipline to understand the problems of other disciplines.During the study, each student is given the responsibility for his own learning process. For thispurpose, the use of a ‘student portfolio’ is introduced. In the Masters course of the ABP Department,every student is allocated a mentor for the development of his portfolio. Each Masters specializationoffers a certain amount of space for elective course elements. This space can be used for taking subjectcourses, and can also be used, for example, for setting up a work placement project.1.3 Design oriented and research-drivenIn the project-driven education in the Masters courses, the emphasis is placed on developing a designorientation in the student. In this context, Designing is an activity aimed at generating solutions toproblems of a complex nature. In this learning process, analysis and synthesis are indivisibly linked.Analysis is associated with scientific method and techniques; synthesis is based on the scientificapproach to design processes and modeling in general.Inherent in the research-driven education that is fundamental to the ‘Master of Science’ degree is that:• students gather knowledge independently, and develop insight and skills in order to apply thisknowledge in the project education of the Masters phase• the final project has a direct relationship with research projects and research activities.Students who want to make an informed choice for their final project work are therefore well advisedto acquaint themselves with the research activities of the various Groups in good time.1 Throughout this brochure, he etc. are to be read as he/she etc.ABP Department Masters Information Brochure5


1.4 Elective course elements in the Masters programThe course elements of the Masters program are divided into compulsory and elective elements.Elective elements are available only in the Masters level part of the TU/e curriculum. Furthermore, theelective elements must be selected with the approval of the Examination Committee. The electiveelements form part of the student portfolio. (See article 3.2 of the Education and ExaminationRegulations.)1.5 Final Attainment Level of the Master of ScienceTo achieve the final attainment level as specified in the Education and Examination Regulations (OER)for the academic year 2007/2008, the Master of Science in Architecture, Building, and Planning:• is University educated within the domain of ‘science, engineering, & technology’,• is competent in the relevant domain-specific discipline(s), that is, possesses sufficient knowledgeand skills and the right attitude for embarking on a career at academic level in the (international)architectural profession or for entering into a(n international) research or design school,• can undertake independent research and design,• is able, when necessary, to involve other disciplines in his own research, and has the appropriateattitude for this,• has a scientific approach to problems and ideas of a complex nature,• has intellectual skills and is capable of critical thought, logical reasoning, and judgment,• can communicate at international level about the results of his own learning, thinking, anddecisions,• is aware of the temporal and social context of science and technology (understanding and analysis)and takes these fully into account in his scientific work,• has, in addition to a recognizable domain-specific profile, a sufficiently broad basis to be able toundertake interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary work. Here, multidisciplinary means: involvingother relevant disciplines that are necessary for solving the (design or research) problem,• actively seeks new application possibilities, and in the process takes account of the social context.1.6 Free or individually tailored Masters programIt is also possible for the student to plan a two year ‘personal’ graduation program in collaborationwith another University (the ‘free’ or ‘individually tailored’ Masters program) in consultation with theExamination Committee and the graduation supervisor. A free program must ultimately be approvedby the Examination Committee. See article 3.3 of the Education and Examination Regulations.• The request can be dealt with only if a form, specifically designed for this purpose, is obtainedfrom the Educational Office and is returned, completed in full, and signed, before the closing datespecified in the Education and Examination Regulations (see article 3.3 of the Education andExamination Regulations for Masters courses, ABP2009-2010);.• In all cases, the preferred graduation Professor or Associate Professor of the ABP Department ofthe TU/e must support the request. There must also be substantive support from the otherUniversity.• The individual program must contain elements of a University Masters course external to the ABPDepartment of the TU/e, that represent a minimum of 20 and a maximum of 40 ECTS credits.• Graduation takes place under the full responsibility of the ABP Department of the TU/e, whichalso issues the diploma. This means that the student must conform to the graduation regulationsof the TU/e ABP Department.1.7 The graduation process for combined ABP Masters specializationsThese regulations on combined study / graduation relate to all possible combinations of Mastersspecializations in the Architecture, Building, and Planning courses. The basis of these regulations is6ABP Department Masters Information Brochure


that a student registers for a main specialization but also takes all compulsory elements of a secondspecialization (where, in principle, the room for elective course elements is used to complete part ofthe obligations of the other specialization). In this case it is unavoidable that extra ECTS credits mustbe earned for the combined study.Extra ECTS creditsStudents undertaking a combined study must earn a minimum of 16 ECTS credits more than the 120ECTS credits required for the normal Masters specializations (so that the combined program comesout at a minimum of 136 ECTS credits).SubjectsThe student must satisfy all subject requirements of both specializations.ProjectsMasters projects in the first academic year:Both Masters projects are organized in such a way that components of both specializations are clearlyincluded. Assessments are carried out by lecturers from both specializations, and both specializationshave equal weight.If it is not possible to arrange for combined projects (for example, for organizational reasons), thestudent can also choose his Masters Project 1 and Masters Project 2 from the normal selection of themain specialization, and then follow the procedure described below before starting projects in thesecond year.Masters projects in the second academic year:The second year Masters project and the Graduation project are always combined projects withsupervision from both specializations (and with a Graduation Supervision Committee that meets therequirements of both specializations and in which both specializations have equal weight).Students who have not undertaken combined Masters projects in the first year must agree thecombined study with the Graduation Supervision Committee before starting. By evaluating the resultsof both first year Masters projects, the Committee assesses whether there is a realistic chance of thecombined study being completed successfully. If, on the basis of the project results shown, theGraduation Supervision Committee is not convinced that a combined graduation project is likely to besuccessful, in consultation with the student this committee can:• base their decision on an extra project with recognizable components from both specializations.As a guideline, this extra project will have a value of 8 ECTS credits, and will be supervised bylecturers of both specializations and can count towards the elective ECTS credits.• alternatively decide that the student can begin on the graduation project, and that approval of acombined study be postponed to the initial colloquium. After this initial colloquium thecommittee will take a decision on the basis of the demonstrated approach and results achieved upuntil the initial colloquium.Detailed programsFor a number of combinations of Masters specializations, program outlines are available that havebeen worked out on the basis of these regulations and can be requested from the secretariats of theunits, the education coordinators of the Masters specializations, and the study advisor.1.8 The ABP Masters PortfolioIntroductionIn the Architecture, Building, and Planning Masters courses an allowance of three ECTS credits isincluded for portfolio education. The subject is called 7PF03 Masters Portfolio. The effort that thestudent must expend for this is spread over the first three semesters. The ECTS credits are actuallyABP Department Masters Information Brochure7


awarded in the third semester. The graduation Professor issues the ECTS credits after consultationwith the portfolio mentor.ThemesThe portfolio education in the Masters course has two themes: Competence development andPresentation. In the first year a start is made with competence development. At the end of the firstyear or the beginning of the second, the student presents himself to the group where he wishes tograduate. The student’s competence development continues through the second year.Competence development for the 2009-2010 intake incl. HBO intakeThe goal is to make clear to the students what competences that have to be developed, and to carry outactivities to actually develop those competences. An introductory lecture will be given at the beginningof the semester. See the timetable. Students must register via Studyweb. Coaching is carried out by theportfolio mentor at the request of the student.Presentation, 2008-2009 intakeBefore starting the graduation phase the student holds a presentation for the group of his preferredgraduation Professor. In this he describes his Bachelors history, the competences that he hasdeveloped (in the space for elective course elements) in the first year of the Masters phase, and whichspecific competences he still wishes to develop in the graduation project. It is to be regarded as anintroduction and interview. He also makes a website where he discusses the competences he hasdeveloped. The Presentation course element is, in principle, a self study element. In the period leadingup to this, the student can get instruction and guidance from the specialist on presentations. Thestudent can work out the content with his portfolio mentor.Portfolio Introduction workshopAt the beginning of the Masters phase, in addition to the 7PF03 Masters Portfolio course element,students can follow a Portfolio Introduction workshop. This workshop is voluntary. During thisworkshop, the subject Competence is looked at more closely, and a start is made with writing aportfolio plan. In order to participate, students must register via the e-mail address given below underInformation, stating the preferred graduation direction. Further information will be made available assoon as possible.Changeover arrangementStudents of the 2006-2007 generation and earlier are covered by a Changeover arrangement. Theyhave registered as Changeover students via Studyweb, and can find all necessary information there.Students covered by the Changeover arrangement, but not registered in Studyweb, are advised tocontact ir. Heijman. See below under Information.InformationFurther information can be obtained from the Portfolio coordinator, ir. M.P.G.

2. ABP Masters Program Regulations2.1 Masters courses admission requirementsThe following Bachelors certificates from the indicated institutions for higher education give directadmission to the Masters course.• ABP (TUD – Technical University of Delft, TU/e)The following Bachelors certificates from the indicated institutions for higher education enable you tostart the Masters courses with a maximum deficit of 30 ECTS credits:• Civiele Techniek (TUD, UT – University of Twenthe)• Industrieel Ontwerpen (TUD)• Industrial Design (TU/e)• Installatietechnologie (TU/e)• Technische Innovatiewetenschappen (TU/e)HBO graduates of the courses Bouwkunde/ABP, Civiele Techniek, and BouwtechnischeBedrijfskunde are admitted to the Masters course after completing a transition program. (SeeAppendix to the Education and Examination Regulations for ABP Bachelors courses 2009-2010.)Students from all other courses at home or abroad must submit an admission application to theDepartmental Admissions Committee.2.2 Compensation regulation relating to the Masters programAccording to article 5.3 of the Examination Regulations, all course elements that form part of the FinalExamination of the Masters course must be completed with a pass grade. This means that no single‘five’ is acceptable in the course elements and projects.HBO graduates who follow the transition program prior to the ABP Masters courses are allowed tohave a single ‘5’ in the transition program for a subject with a maximum value of 3 ECTS credits.2.3 Masters Cum Laude regulationAccording to article 5.7 of the Examination Regulations, a Masters cum laude graduation must satisfythe following conditions (also referred to as the special qualifications).The Examination Committee awards a diploma “cum laude” when the arithmetic average gradeachieved by the student for those course elements taken by the student as part of the course is 8 orhigher, with the exception of the graduation project, which must be graded as a 9 or higher.Furthermore, none of the completed course elements may be graded lower than a 6.2.4 ABP Masters Study SequenceIntroductionThe Education and Examination Regulations contain various rules that specify that you must workthrough the course in a certain sequence. There are a number of reasons for this.• There can be content dependencies between course elements.• The entry to a following phase can be subject to rules.• Some rules are intended to prevent delaying tactics.For a complete overview of the rules see the ABP course Education and Examination Regulations.ABP Department Masters Information Brochure9


Without repeating all the rules once again, there follows an explanation of the consequences that thesehave for the sequence in which you work through the course.Admission to the ABP Masters Phase‘Own’ BachelorsMany students who undertake the ABP Bachelors course continue on to the ABP Masters course. Youare allowed to start this if you have a (provisional) registration for the ABP Masters. You must apply forthe provisional registration yourself, and you are accepted if you have obtained 160 ECTS credits in theBachelors phase, including all the projects and the whole second year program. You are fullyregistered when you have been awarded the Bachelors diploma.HBO intakeStudents who are following the transition program are allowed to participate in ABP Mastersexaminations if they are registered as probationary Masters students. You must apply for thisregistration yourself, and are accepted if you have gained 15 ECTS credits of the transition program.You are also allowed to participate in Masters project work if you have also completed your transitionproject.You can be registered as a probationary Masters student for a maximum of 12 months. You are givenfull Masters registration when you have completed the transition program.Admission to the second year of the ABP Masters Phase‘Own’ BachelorsYou are allowed to start the second year of the ABP Masters Phase if you have obtained the ABPBachelors diploma.HBO intakeStudents in this category are allowed to start the second year of the ABP Masters Phase if they havecompleted the transition program.Graduation projectYou are allowed to start the graduation project if you have successfully completed the other Mastersproject and the course elements Development Portfolio 4 and Masters Portfolio.EnforcementThe policy is aimed at ensuring that students comply with this sequence. This means that there will beincreasing checks on whether you are allowed to participate in project work or take examinations. It istherefore possible that you might be notified that you are not allowed to start a project or take anexamination. If you are of the opinion that this is unjustified, you should consult the study advisor.You can explain your situation to him. The Director of Education will then decide whether there isgood reason to admit you to the project or examination after all.2.5 Graduation regulations(Appendix 3 to article 5.2, clause 4, of the “Examenreglement de opleidingen Bouwkunde,Architecture, Building and Planning, Building Services, en Construction Management andEngineering”.)Prior to the graduation project, a graduation plan must be written.The purpose of the graduation phase is to achieve the final attainment level of the Masters course. Thestudent must be registered as a graduation student by means of the appropriate forms that can beobtained from the Educational Office (VRT 2.11).10ABP Department Masters Information Brochure


Before starting on the graduation phase, the student must have completed the following elements ofthe Masters course with a pass grade:• the two projects from the first year of the Masters course, as well as the project from the firstsemester of the second year of the Masters course,• all the compulsory course elements of the Masters program.During the graduation project the student holds public colloquia. Note the following points.• It is conceivable that there are several evaluation points during the graduation process. These arerecorded in the graduation plan.• In any case the student holds the final colloquium. Here, to round off the graduation project, theresults achieved are presented.Final colloquia must be announced in advance.The Graduation Supervision CommitteeOn commencement of the graduation project, the student must establish a Graduation SupervisionCommittee consisting of at least three members authorized to conduct the Final Examination, ofwhom at least two are members of the academic staff of the ABP Department of the TU/e. At least onemember of the Graduation Supervision Committee must be a Professor or Associate Professor andoccupy a Chair or Associate Professorship in the competence area of the graduation project. For anoverview of the Chairs and Associate Professorships with the competence for graduation supervisionsee Appendix 5 of the Examination Regulations. The Professor or Associate Professor is chairman ofthe Graduation Supervision Committee. The chairman oversees the composition of the GraduationSupervision Committee. The Examination Committee is responsible for the final approval of theSupervision Committee.One member of the Graduation Supervision Committee can be an external expert. The external expertmust be a subject specialist who does not work in the ABP Department of the TU/e. Normally theexternal expert must be a University graduate. However, in special cases a HBO diploma is acceptableif the external expert possesses a demonstrable, high level of expertise. The chairman of theGraduation Supervision Committee makes sure that the external expert meets these requirements. Hewill submit a request to the Examination Committee using an appropriate form.The members of the Graduation Supervision Committee evaluate the graduation project. Any personswho have been involved in the graduation process may act only as advisors. They have no formalinfluence on the assessment.In the case of graduation projects of the Masters course in Building Services and in ConstructionManagement and Engineering, one of the members of the academic staff of the ABP Department canbe substituted by a member of the academic staff of one of the other relevant Departments of theTU/e.Requests to deviate from the above must be submitted to the Examination Committee of the ABPDepartment of the TU/e, with argumentation and with the approval of the chairman of the GraduationSupervision Committee.In the evaluation of the graduation project the following aspects are taken into consideration:• the product: the quality of the content of the project,• the process: the organization and implementation of the project, and their planning,• the presentation: the manner of presentation and reporting.ABP Department Masters Information Brochure11


If weighting factors relating to these aspects must be taken into account, they must be made known inadvance and be recorded in the graduation plan. If that has not been done, there is no question ofweighting factors being applied in the evaluation of the aspects mentioned.Each member of the Graduation Supervision Committee carries the same weight in the assessment.The student who is graduating is informed of the arguments that have formed the basis of theassessment.The following requirements must be met before a student’s graduation is considered in the meeting ofthe Examination Committee.• The student must register at least four weeks before the meeting of the Examination Committeevia internet at http://owinfo.tue.nl/. See the closing dates that are listed there for registering forthe Final Examination.• All the assessments of course elements, project work (including the graduation project), andportfolio elements must be submitted to the Educational Office at the latest two weeks before themeeting of the Examination Committee.• All requirements of the graduation project must have been met, that is, there must be an assessedthesis, an interim and a final colloquium must have been held, and an assessed (summary) articlemust be available.• The approved thesis with signature, as well as the article, must be submitted to the EducationalOffice at least two weeks before the meeting of the Examination Committee.According to article 5.1 of the Education and Examination Regulations, there are at least threeopportunities per year for taking the Final Examination. In principle, the Examination Committeeconvenes a meeting on one of the last five working days of every month, excluding the academicholidays, at which it determines the result of the Final Examinations of the students who haveregistered for it in accordance with the rules. The dates of these meetings are announced centrally onbehalf of the Examination Committee before the beginning of the academic year.The student receives the final diploma (in Dutch and English) only if the student has registered, andthe Examination Committee has declared that the student has passed.Guidelines for the thesisA report of the graduation project is made in the form of a written thesis, possibly supplemented byillustrations or other media.The thesis can be submitted not only as ‘hard copy’ (on paper) but also digitally via an appropriatesoftware environment.The thesis must meet the following requirements.1.

By examination is understood not only awritten or oral examination, but also every assessment of the knowledge, insight, and skills of astudent, thus including that of a work piece, project work, and completed practical exercise.Before the Examination Committee takes any decision the student is given the opportunity to beheard.14ABP Department Masters Information Brochure


Plagiarism is also seen as cheating. Quoting from someone’s work, words, or ideas is citation. This ispermitted, as long as the source is reported. However, if texts, ideas, argumentation, or images aretaken over from third parties (for example taken over from available digital information sources,derived from internet websites, or scanned from books and journals), and these are passed off as ownoriginal work, this is seen as plagiarism. The plagiariser commits a deception and is thereforecheating.The graduation regulations contain a number of rules for citing other people’s work withoutcommitting plagiarism (see item 9, Literature, of section 2.5).ABP Department Masters Information Brochure15
