We believe that all members of the ETV should have access to support and help whenever they need it. Of course the board is always available to help you, offer you advice, or to listen to any of your complaints, but sometimes you may need professional help. At the faculty, a number of professional help lines are available:


Academic Counsellor 

You can contact the academic counsellor for advice or help regarding your studies. This can be for planning your courses or home work, but also guidance in obtaining your BSA or choosing a master programme. The academic counsellor at EWI is called Stijn van Mierlo, and is located on the second floor in the lower part of EWI (B36. LB 02). For short questions it is fastest to e-mail him, but if you want more elaborate help or advice, you can speak to him in person by making an appointment or seeing him in the walk-in hours. These are from 13:00 until 14:00, every Monday to Thursday. 


Counsellor (confidant) 

You can contact the counsellor of EWI if you have dealt with unwanted behaviour or have bean treated unfairly within your programme of study. This can be, for example, a case of (sexual) intimidation, bullying, discrimintation, stalking or violence. A counsellor is meant to offer you a listening ear, and to forwarding you to sources of help if you need it. It is important to realise that a counsellor does not fulfill the role as a psychologist. However, if you have encountered an unpleasant situation at the faculty, the counsellor is a good contact point to start with. 



Burn-outs, stress en depression are sadly problems that a lot of students have to deal with. To be of good support for students, the university has a number of psychologist working at the TU Delft. You can contact the psychologists if you encounter mental issues which stand in your way of successfully completing your study. The waiting list for an appointment with a psychologist is quite long, so our advice is whenever you develop a serious mental problem, to make an appointment right away. This way, you can get help on time. Do you want to prepare for your appointment? This document may help you:
