TRAIL courses: ECTS – TUD GS credits

Update 2023

TU Delft Graduate School has sharpened the definition of what a GS credit entails. In their documentation there used to be several contradictory definitions. As of this academic year they work with the following definition: 1 GS credit = 12 hours of workload (including both in-class and self-study hours).

TRAIL has applied this sharpened definition for their courses. The differences are relatively small. Most importantly is that the GS credits for only attending courses have sometimes gone down a bit, and the credits which can be earned with doing an assignment have stayed the same or have gone up a bit.

The updated GS credits will be effective from 1 January 2024.

* = Up till 2019: ECTS 1 -2 / GS 1 – 3
** = ** 2021: ECTS 1 – 1.5 / GS 1 -2

0 Between brackets number of course days

1 D= Domain Knowledge
T = Theory
M = Methodology
S = Skills

2 First number = participated in course – second number = participated in course & passed assignment/exam

3 The Promotor decides about the number of TUD GS credits to be administered in DMA

4 PhD student can choose either category, since TRAIL ‘methodology’ and ‘skills’ courses are strongly linked to the TRAIL ‘discipline’

5 Mandatory courses for the TRAIL Diploma

6 OML: Courses given by TRAIL and Research School Beta within the Graduate Program Operations Management and Logistics (GP-OML).

7 T: Transport, I: Infrastructure, L: Logistics
