Twente Graduate School

Twente Graduate School (TGS) offers high-quality educational programmes based on subjects closely related to the work of the university’s research institutes and taught and supervised by expert researchers from these same institutes. It offers an increasing variety of integrated Master’s and PhD programmes for outstanding graduate students who are keen to pursue a career in scientific research.

TGS programmes are set up in collaboration between the university’s faculties and research institutes. Next to the PhD research project leading to a dissertation, the broad selection of discipline related and elective courses enable students to specialize in a research area they are interested in while broadening their perspective on the societal context of technology and research. These aspects are integrated into the Twente Graduate School, which aims to give a kick-start to research talent.
