Are you up for a challenge? Broaden your horizons by pursuing an additional degree alongside your Master’s!
As a student at the University of Twente, you have a lot of opportunities to expand your knowledge beyond your Master’s. If you want to acquire additional multidisciplinary skills and knowledge to respond to societal challenges even more effectively, you can combine your Master’s with another programme.
If you want to expand your knowledge and skills in another domain, you have the opportunity to combine your Master’s in Embedded Systems with, for example, a Master’s in Industrial Design Engineering, Robotics, or Biomedical Engineering.
This will result in a three-year programme (180 EC). You need to be eligible for both Master's, so check the admission requirements for both programmes.
This type of double Master’s programme is always tailor-made. If you are interested in the possibility of combining your Master’s in Embedded Systems with another programme, contact the study adviser Eric Bong for more information.
Excellent students can take part in one of our Master Honours Programmes: an extracurricular programme of 15 EC. You get the opportunity to enrich your knowledge, skills, and experiences beyond your discipline. Upon successful completion, you will receive a certificate and an Honours Pin.
Excellent students can take part in one of our Master Honours Programmes: an extracurricular, broadening programme of 15 EC. Such a programme gives you, alongside your Master’s, the opportunity to enrich your knowledge, skills, and experiences outside your own discipline. Upon successful completion of the programme, you receive a certificate and an Honours Pin.
We advise you to start with your Master's first, before applying for a Master Honours Programme. A couple of months of studying will help you to decide whether a Master Honour Programme will be feasible for you. You can discuss this option with your study adviser.
If you do decide to apply for an Honours programme, note that acceptance is based on a selection procedure. Honours programmes are aimed at master's students who are among the top 10% of their class.

Do you envision what the future should look like? Do you have the ambition to get out of your comfort zone and make social impact? The University of Twente offers you the opportunity to add the Transdisciplinary Master-Insert to your Master's. This is a full-time study programme of six months (30 EC) during which you put your regular Master's on hold for half a year.
You can also incorporate the Master-Insert into your Master’s through packages of 10 or 20 EC. In some cases, you can even use (some of) your elective space to take courses from the Master-Insert as long as this complies with your Master’s.
In the Master-Insert, you will think of solutions to complex societal challenges aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. You will engage in transdisciplinary research together with curious, passionate, and inspiring students and academics from various departments of the university. You will join a unique learning community that makes you an accomplished and confident change-maker.
