Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)

TU Delft offers ‘Massive Open Online Courses’ (MOOCs) on the edX-platform. A MOOC is an online course aiming at large-scale interactive participation and open access via the web. In addition to traditional course materials such as videos, readings, and problem sets, MOOCs provide interactive user forums that help build a community for the students, professors, and teaching assistants.


edX is a non-profit platform for online education through which MIT, Harvard and others, make a range of courses accessible to anyone, anywhere in the world, who has access to internet. The free courses are open to everyone, without prior education or entry examination.

How does it work?

Online courses will have the same difficulty level as the campus bachelor courses: in a fixed period of eight to ten weeks and with opportunities for interaction between fellow participants. The courses include homework and exams. After succesful completion you will receive a certificate of mastery issued by DelftX.

DelftX classes take place at your convenience. Prefer to sleep in and study late? No worries. Videos and problem sets are available 24 hours a day, which means you can watch video and complete work whenever you have spare time. You simply login to your course via the Internet and work through the course material, one week at a time.
