When your parents got their first mobile phone, it wasn’t much more than a curious add-on to their lives. Today, we use our smart phones 24/7 and digital technologies are increasingly interwoven with everything we do. Do you want to gain a clear understanding of today’s technologies and use it for the good of society? Then Management, Society & Technology is the Bachelor's programme for you.
In our programme, you integrate the core subjects of public administration with profound knowledge of modern technologies and their effects on society. You learn how to do state-of-the-art research, such as model analysis, advanced statistics and data science.
At University of Twente we organize education in modules, four a year, that integrate all important subjects of study. You apply your knowledge in projects to get to grips with current, societal topics and design viable solutions.
The first half of your study, so the first one and a half year, bring you the core of Managament, Society and Technology:
The Twente Educational Model, ‘TOM’, makes studying more effective and more futureproof. TOM lets you take charge of your own learning path, becoming more responsible, self-critical and entrepreneurial. You will learn how to join forces with others in changing teams and discover your best role as a team player. You will benefit from and enjoy many ways of learning, including challenging, real-world projects. You will obtain in-depth expertise in your field and the ability to interact with colleagues from completely different disciplines. On top of that, you will become an expert in putting the interplay between science, technology and society to the best possible use.
After the core modules you can choose between three specializations: (1) Systems Analysis and Data Science; (2) Public Administration; (3) Global and European Studies. The specialization takes one semester.
That concludes the first two years of Management, Society & Technology. Find out more about the third year.
