Second minor-registration period opens 1 July

Are you in your second BSc year and not yet registered for a minor next year? Make sure to apply for a thematic minor during the second minor registration period, starting 1 July.

Log into Osiris, where you will be able to see which minors still have places available. Register for one the available minors that you wish to study. You will be enrolled immediately. You also have the option to switch minors while in Osiris, but beware: canceling your registration of your minor in order to register for a new one is at your own risk. If you do not register for another minor quickly enough, places might be full and your original minor-place could have been taken up by another student. If that happens you have no claim to re-register for your old minor.

Since the first registration period has passed, minors that are still open for registration may have very limited spaces. Because of constant fluctuations in the available places, we are not able to maintain an updated accurate list of available spaces on our minors.tudelft.nl site. Osiris will always list the most accurate and up to date information with regards to available places. Minors.tudelft.nl will only list the selection-minors that have definitely filled up and for which you cannot register any more. In short, check Osiris for the most up-to-date minor-availability.

The following selection minors are not available at the start of the second minor registration period, starting July 1:

Name minor Code
Advanced Prototyping IO-MI-135
Automotive Design IO-MI-165
Biomedical Engineering BME-MI-087
Educatie SEC-MI-049
Interactive Environments IO-MI-124
International Entrepreneurship and Development WM-MI-101
Mathematics and Finance TW-MI-187
Robotica WB-MI-168
Spaces for display: retail & exhibition design BK-MI-145
Sports Innovation IO-MI-164

Summer maintenance Library

Have you seen the Library lately? Then you might have noticed the scaffolding! During these summer months the Library will be under maintenance. The cone will get a new coat of paint,  the doors at the main entrance will be replaced as well as the windows along the edge of the cone.

These maintenance activities have started on 13 June June and will last till the end of August. No worries, the Library will remain open during this whole period. Though, some areas may temporarily not be available for safety reasons. This will be signposted clearly. Of course everything will be done to keep disturbances to a minimum.

Check the Library Facebook page for the latest updates. Or visit the website for an overview of the planned maintenance activities in the Library.

Where to study during the exam period?

Only a few weeks left until the summer holidays start! Although you probably still have to study quite a bit before you can fully enjoy the amazing weather we’ve been having. To make your life a little easier, ORAS created an overview of the opening hours of all faculties, so you know exactly where and when you can study at campus between June 19th and July 7th. Good luck with your exams!

NB. The faculty of Industrial Design Engineering is also open during the weekend on the 24th and 25th of June.

And of course also Fellowship and Aula are great places to study.

Update: Wireless network failure resolved

At this moment (Tuesday, 20 June) we’re experiencing a failure of the wireless network throughout the entire campus. It is currently not possible to connect to eduroam. Our ICT-department is working hard to solve the problem, but it is unfortunately not possible to say how long this will take. As an alternative, you can connect to the wired network. Network cables are available at the Service Desk (while stock lasts).

Follow the status of this failure on the ICT maintenance page (http://meldingen-ict.tudelft.nl).

Update: Wireless network failure

The failure of the wireless network has been resolved via a workaround. You can now connect to Eduroam again. ICT is currently investigating the cause of the failure.
If you have any questions, please contact the Service Desk in your faculty.
