Delft University of Technology
Aerospace Engineering from Delft University
I have been hearing about Delft since I was a kid. It was a dream come true for me. My brother, my cousins, all have graduated from the same place. Thus, following their steps, I went on to pursue my education from Delft as well. Therefore, I went ahead to fill the application form for the further processes involved
The course comprises of both lectures and laboratory. The lectures are not compulsory, but most laboratory courses and projects are subject to attendance requirements. During the second year, I witnessed more projects and practical tutorials. And as the subject progresses the minor subjects comes into the play and the subject gets into the core.
There was a whole 3-4 months selection criteria. This involved an online introductory course, a mini-MOOC. After this, there were two tests: a motivation test and an academic test.Finally, I was asked to write a short self-reflection.The entire selection procedure takes place online. The final scores came and I was selected to pursue my program.
I paid an amount close to € 2.000 towards tuition fee. Apart from the tuition fee I paid an amount of €300 towards recreational fee. My books and supplies cost got covered under €500
I used to stay with my brother, who has his home which is quite near to the college. This helped me a lot because I wanted a private space and did not wanted to stay with someone else. Over to that, the accommodations off-campus are pretty costly too. The only cost that I pay is for the transportation which comes under €300.
Delft observes the best placements. Best companies visit the campus and specifically for the engineering course, the companies hire almost all the students. Although, I have plans to study further and develop my research further, but a lot of my seniors have got placed in the R&D division of big companies. Also, few of them for the opportunity from Tesla.
I developed a college project under my professor. For the same, I wrote a research paper under my professor. The college paid me an amount of €5000. I went on to submit it in the annual national conference.
A lot of conferences and other academic or cultural events keeps happening in the campus. I specifically enjoy the one organised by the clubs of the college. The musical choir is one such event, which I love to be a part of, whenever it happens.
I did not apply for any scholarships
Monthly Expense : $500 - $1500
