atlas University College
The Academy of Technology and Liberal Arts & Sciences (ATLAS) is an interdisciplinary Honours bachelor's programme for top students, integrating social and technical perspectives into a new engineering approach. ATLAS is the first University College in the Netherlands that combines Technology and Liberal Arts & Sciences in its curriculum. And for a good reason. As global challenges increase and new technologies emerge, our future calls for a New Engineer: an academic all-rounder combining technological and societal approaches to design solutions that can be implemented in a range of social, cultural and political contexts.
ATLAS is a three-year programme taught entirely in English. Read more about the residential college, programme structure, eligibility criteria, preliminary CV-check, application deadlines (see: Early-Spring deadline), application and selection process, tuition fees and our ATLAS Scholarship Fund.

ATLAS is aimed at students with a broad interest, strong ambitions and pioneering spirit. As an ATLAS trailblazer you are driven by technology, but also socially engaged. You will acquire a solid foundation in both engineering and social science concepts, as well as develop your creativity, flexibility, leadership and communication skills to become an academic all-rounder.
Discovering your own potential
This English-taught bachelor's programme is structured around real-world global issues. You will develop original solutions and learn how to turn them into real changes that make the world a better place. Part of your curriculum is a ‘personal pursuit’ that focuses on developing your personal interest: music, sports, a second language, development work or attending an international summer school.
With an ATLAS BSc Honours degree you will be eligible for admission at prestigious technical or social science Master’s programmes in the Netherlands or abroad.
