Programme structure

elec2m  2016-2017  Louvain-la-Neuve

 The Master’s degree program is comprised of:
  • a core curriculum (30 to 40 credits)
  • a final specialisation (30 credits)
  • one or more major or elective courses listed below

The graduation project is normally completed during the second year. However, students opt to complete the project in either the first or second year so long as they have fulfilled the necessary prerequisites. This is particularly the case for students who have completed part of their education abroad.

If during the student’s previous studies, he or she has already taken a course that is part of the programme (either required or elective) or they have participated in an academic activity that is approved by the programme commission, the student may count this activity toward their graduation requirements (but only if they respect programme rules). The student will also verify that he/she has obtained the minimum number of credits required for the approval of their diploma as well as for the approval of their major (in order to include their academic distinctions in the diploma supplement).

These types of programmes will be submitted for approval by the relevant Master’s degree programme commission.

For a programme-type, and regardless of the focus, options/or elective courses selected, this master will carry a minimum of 120 credits divided over two annual units, corresponding to 60 credits each.
