Use of electronic platforms

The faculty uses different electronic platforms for administration purposes.


At Ghent University, the official electronic learning environment Minerva is used to provide information and course materials and to optimize communication between staff and students.

Important! Please register for every course you (intend to) take, and also register for the infosite "Guest and exchange students Faculty Engineering and Architecture" (EXGAEX). Important information will be distributed by these sites.


Plato is a platform developed by the faculty. It is used to register information about master's dissertations, traineeships and exchange programmes (for degree students).


Via Athena you can use software for which Ghent University has a license agreement. You don't even have to install these programs on your computer. Some programs, such as anti-virus software, can be installed locally on your computer.

More information on the use of Athena can be found on the website of the ICT Helpdesk.


Via Oasis-web, you can view important information concerning your enrolment and your curriculum.
