Why Nanotechnology at the University of Twente?

Multidisciplinary programme

Nanotechnology is a unique programme. No other university in the Netherlands offers you the chance to study for a Master’s degree in Nanotechnology.

Like nanotechnology itself, our Master’s in Nanotechnology is multidisciplinary. You will have the opportunity to explore the many different research areas within the wider field of nanotechnology, before specialising in the area of your choice, such as bionanotechnology and nanochemistry, nanophysics or nanosystems and -devices.

Our programme has a strong focus on the fabrication and characterisation of (functional) nanostructures. It also has a strong research component. This combination will give you the perfect preparation for a career as a researcher.

Highly appreciated programme

The National Student Survey (NSE: Nationale Studenten Enquête) allows all students in Dutch higher education to rate their study programmes and universities. According to this survey our students highly appreciate the international flavour of our programme,  as well as our facilities and programme structure.  Over 80% of our students would recommend the Nanotechnology programme at the University of Twente to their family and friends.

Excellent research facilities

The University of Twente is an excellent place to study Nanotechnology. It is home to MESA+, one of the world’s leading nanotechnology research institutes, which has an extensive cleanroom facility, specialised labs and excellent research groups. During this Master’s programme, you can take full advantage of these state-of-the-art facilities, while following the best practical courses you can find. You will also work closely with another University of Twente research institute, the renowned Technical Medical Centre (TechMed) in which for example research in nanomedicine is performed. In this institute research, technology and the industry join forces to create, develop and test improvements and innovations for healthcare.
