In this study, the final part of an overarching project on curriculum design and implementation executed at Delft University of Technology is presented. The last step in this research is to establish how the students perceive their new curricula. To that end a survey was developed using standardized questions on self-determination, motivation, self-efficacy, engineering education attributes, doability and study load of the programme. In addition, measures of student progress were collected in a programme for Architecture and the Built Environment and electrical Engineering. Relationships between the variables were established, but the relationship with progress was not strong. There were significant differences between the programmes, some of which may have a relationship with the way the curriculum was designed.
