Twente Graduate School


The Twente Graduate School at the University of Twente offers an increasing variety of integrated master's and PhD programmes for outstanding graduate students who aim at a career in scientific research. The programmes are set up in cooperation between faculties and research institutes. Through a broad selection of compulsory and elective courses, students are able to specialize in a research area of their interest and at the same to broaden their perspective on the societal context of technology and research. All these aspects are integrated into the Twente Graduate School which aims to become a breeding ground for research talent. We set high standards and have a strict selection procedure for both research and education programmes as well as prospective students.
