What’s the difference between this course at the University of Twente and a similar course at a university of applied sciences?

The academic skills you learn on the Bachelor’s programme at the University of Twente enable you to reach the required level to enter a university Master’s programme. It prepares you for a job in which you will contribute to the development of the latest cutting-edge technological applications. Our practicals and projects turn students into real engineers, capable of solving problems independently by taking a pragmatic and structured approach, working efficiently and effectively with others. You’ll not only learn the right answer to a question, but get to grips with the why and how of electrical engineering.
