Double Degree program in Chemical Engineering

The objective of the Double Degree (condensed) MSc programme is to enable excellent students from abroad to fulfil a Master’s assignment in The Netherlands. If your results are satisfactory, you can usually count on being offered a PhD position after completing your Double Degree.

This Double Degree (condensed) programme is a unique possibility for you to receive an MSc diploma from your home university along with a diploma from the University of Twente. In order to enrol, you have to have taken (at least) one year of relevant Master’s courses at your home university. At the University of Twente you will complete a programme of 75 European Credits (EC). This includes your MSc thesis research project, or assignment, which is worth 45 EC.

Depending on what you have already done, you may be granted exemptions for about 45 EC points of the regular Master’s programme, including the internship.

Completing this condensed MSc programme will earn you a Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Twente. You can follow a condensed MSc programme for the Molecules & Materials Engineering (M&ME) specialization of the programme. The diploma is based on a study effort of 120 EC.
