Masters of Impact 2017

How to choose a Master’s degree and improve your chances at having an awesome career

Your Bachelor’s degree is almost in the pocket. What’s next? Continuing your studies with a Master's degree is a smart investment in your future. To help you and your fellow second and third-year Bachelor’s degree students, we will be organizing the MASTERS OF IMPACT WEEKS from 12-23 February 2018 (new date for next academic year to be announced). During this event:

  • You will discover which of our inspiring Master’s programmes suits you best. 
  • You will get more in-depth information about our Master’s programmes and the various specializations.
  • You can talk to teachers, current master’s students and alumni about career prospects.

Why You Should Not Miss The 'MASTERS OF IMPACT WEEKS'

A Master’s degree makes you a specialist in your field of expertise and improves your chances of having a great career. It is never to early to start considering your options and decide which Master’s degree is most suitable for you. If you wait until the end of your Bachelor’s programme, you may seriously limit your options. If you like to switch to another field of study for example, or use your minor profile for a pre-Master’s programme then you can, but make sure you start preparing on time. Don’t forget, your future begins during the Master’s Weeks!  You do not need to register, participation is free of charge!

Come and attend my lecture about the relationship between science and industry. I will tell you all about what the ecosystem in the University of Twente region has to offer and how to increase your chances of finding a suitable job here.Kees Eijkel - Director of Strategic Business Development

Get a head start on your future. Right here on campus! For ten whole days, you will have the chance to meet with teachers, Study Advisors and current Master’s degree students to find out everything you ever wanted to know and more about interesting Master’s programmes so you can make the right choice. 

Timetable Masters of impact
