Projects and general subjects

All the courses in this course block are mandatory, and the course block includes the general engineering subjects as well as the study programme’s Design-Build courses. The Head of Studies suggests that students complete the programme with the BSc project in the sixth semester. The BSc project can be 15, 17.5 or 20 points.

For students following the BSc in General Engineering programme it is mandatory to choose the programming language Python in the course 02631 Introduction to programming and data processing.

02631 Introduction to programming and data processing 5 point Autumn E1B (Thurs 13-17), Spring F2B (Thurs 8-12)

Electives

In this course block, students must choose 45 ECTS points from available BSc and MSc level courses (including maximum 10 ECTS BEng courses), provided by DTU. Students can choose to take the courses that fall within the scope of the recommended courses of study. Furthermore students are also free to follow courses in advanced mathematics, physics, and chemistry or they can choose more general courses in, for example, management and finance. Finally, students can use the electives to change educational focus, so that they qualify for MSc programmes for which the original BSc programme does not immediately provide access.

Bachelor's students may have up to 10 ECTS credits at the diploma engineering level as part of the optional courses in their bachelor's program.

Depending on what MSc programme you are aiming at there are lists of recommended elective courses. Please, consult with either your Head of Studies or the Head of Studies for the relevant MSc programme.

It is highly recommended to choose the following course as elective:

02402 Introduction to Statistics 5 point Autumn E3A (Tues 8-12), Spring F4A (Tues 13-17)

For the specialization Living Systems, the following course is recommended:

25208 Sustainability Solutions 5 point June
