Industrial Ecology Capita Selecta Module


Admission requirements

The Capita Selecta Industrial Ecology module can be taken as an individual specialisation module for students of the MSc Industrial Ecology (joint degree between Leiden University and TU Delft). It is not open to students from other master programmes.


A capita selecta is not an existing course, but refers to an additional piece of work, which is not covered by any other course or part of the programme. It can have the form of a separate piece of scientific research which results in a report or some other tangible product, an individual course on the basis of literature and other sources, a literature review or any other scientific piece of work. A capita selecta is always supervised by a core examiner of the IE-programme.

Depending on the workload of the project, the Industrial Ecology Capita Selecta Module can equal 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 EC.
