Setting up a project with students

Looking for honours students to participate in a project?

Honours students have the possibility to participate in an interdisciplinary project within their Honours Programme. The honours platform offers honours partners the opportunity to present a project or problem for our honours students to tackle together with you. The mix of having an interdisciplinary team of students available could lead to very insightful results! As an Honours partner you have to possibility to set up this kind of projects. 

The 'Application form Projects' provides you with more information on the requirements for a suitable project, what we expect from you and the type of support you can expect from the university. For more information please contact the Education Coordinator of the Honours programme Delft, Ms. Patrice Kauw at

Some facts & figures

  • Students obtain ECTS by working on the project. It's our aim that every student who joins an interdisciplinary project will achieve 5 ECTS. It means that he/she should spend about 140 hours on the project.
  • The students will be assisted by a lecturer of the TU Delft. The lecturer will assess the quality and the content of the work.
  • In order to have an interdisciplinary team, there will be honours students from at least 2 faculties joining the team.
  • When signing up for a project, honours students have to demonstrate how they think they'll achieve at least 4 of the learning objectives of the inter-faculty honours programme. These objectives are set as follows. A student who has successfully completed a course/project:
    • Is able to analyse the economic, social, cultural and environmental impact on society of new developments in relevant fields, and capable of integrating them into an academic project.
    • Is able to communicate about research and solutions to problems with colleagues, non-colleagues and other interested parties, both verbally and in writing.
    • Is able to debate about the field and its position in society.
    • Is able to adopt a project-based approach to work: has a sense of pragmatism and responsibility; knows how to work with limited sources; can cope with risks; is able to compromise.
    • Shows a professional attitude: drive, reliability, commitment, accuracy, determination and autonomy.
    • Is able and willing to involve other disciplines in own research or design process where necessary.
