General Education Information

Structure Master's Programme

Before you start your Master’s programme, you will choose your track. Your choice will determine the core courses. Both tracks have a number of core courses you have to take. Besides the core courses you will have plenty of room to choose some electives.

The general programme structure for both specializations is:

  • Required courses (32.5 or 37.5 credits, depending on the specialization)
  • Electives (27.5 EC or 17.5 EC credits, depending on the specialization )
  • Internship (20 credits)
  • Master’s assignment (40 or 45 credits)

If you did your Bachelor's at the University of Twente one big difference between Bachelor's and Master's is, that the Master's exists of separate course (usually 5 EC) and not a module like in the Bachelor's. This means you have to register for every course separate. You also have the freedom to choose electives, unlike in your Bachelor’s not all subjects are compulsory.
