Professor De Winter Scholarship

Professor de Winter and Mrs. de Winter were highly involved in UT programmes and with ‘their’ students. Their heirs continue to be involved in their honour by awarding a scholarship of € 7,500 to an excellent female student.

The Professor de Winter Scholarship is provided by the inheritors of Professor de Winter and his wife. Professor de Winter was one of the founders of the research and education department of the ‘Technische Hogeschool Twente’ – which later became the University of Twente. In 1969 he became the first career counselor of Technical Physics. At that time, he had already been appointed as professor of Applied Physics at the department of Electrical Engineering.

Professor de Winter and Mrs. de Winter were highly involved in UT Physics programmes and with ‘their’ students. Their heirs continue to be involved in their honour by awarding a scholarship of € 7,500. The next Professor de Winter scholarship is available for the academic year 2020/2021.

Scholarship value

  • € 7,500 per year for the full duration of your Master's programme.
  • If you have applied for a two-year programme, make sure you read the information about two-year study programmes below.
  • Have a look at the overview of the estimated costs of living in the Netherlands (excluding tuition fees).

Please note: This scholarship is meant as a compensation for study related costs. It is up to the scholarship student to decide how to spend the money. No costs (e.g. tuition fees) will be paid on your behalf.

TWO-YEAR STUDY PROGRAMME

The selected study programmes for this scholarship have a duration of two years. Students can receive an additional scholarship amount equal to that in the first year to cover the expenses of the second year. However, the scholarship will only be continued during the second when students meet the process requirements for the scholarship. These progress requirements in order to get a scholarship for the second year are:

  • The student must have obtained an average grade of 7 (out of 10) at the end of the third quartile of the first year of the programme;
  • The student must have obtained at least 50% of European Credits at the end of the third quartile of the first year programme;
  • The student must have obtained 90% of European Credits before start of the second year programme.

ELIGIBLE PROGRAMMES AND COUNTRIES

Master's programmes
Applied Mathematics

As an applied mathematician, you occupy a key position in the scientific world. Through mathematical models, you grasp the essence of a problem and see links between seemingly unrelated phenomena.

Applied Physics

Apply yourself to one of the oldest fields of science: physics. Gain fundamental insights into your own research field while honing your research skills.

Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering is about the design and development of healthcare technology to improve lives: from rehabilitation robots and artificial organs, to imaging techniques and prosthetics.

Business Information Technology

The Master’s in Business Information Technology makes you an expert in IT-based business innovation, with the skills to devise new services and radically improve the way businesses work.

Chemical Engineering

Chemical Engineering encompasses the fields of chemistry, materials science and process engineering. Chemical engineers are also well versed in areas such as fluid dynamics and thermodynamics.

Civil Engineering & Management

If you are eager to focus on both the technical and non-technical aspects of civil engineering projects and systems, then the Master’s in Civil Engineering and Management is the programme for you.

Computer Science

Computer Science is omnipresent in modern society. Latest hardware and software developments are crucial in domains such as social media, security, health, energy, ICT systems, finance and telecom.

Construction Management & Engineering

Complex, innovative and multidisciplinary projects in a dynamic environment require a new breed of engineers who are able to expertly combine engineering knowledge with management skills.

Electrical Engineering

This master's challenges you to develop new methods and technologies for high-tech electronics-based systems in nanotechnology, robotics, electronics, telecommunication or biomedical systems.

Embedded Systems

This master’s focuses on the design of embedded systems: the hardware and software that control a device, process or system, e.g. smart phones, pacemakers, chip sets or navigation systems.

Industrial Design Engineering

Designing new products and improving existing ones is a continual process. Take the Master’s in IDE and discover the full potential of the interaction between design and engineering.

Industrial Engineering & Management

This 2-year, English-taught Master’s – with tracks in Finance, Healthcare and Production/Logistics – will equip you to design, manage and optimize processes in complex, globally active organizations.

Interaction Technology

Interaction Technology combines principles from electrical engineering and IT with the analysis of human behaviour and storytelling.

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineers focus on the design, analyses and maintenance of machinery, structures and products. The Master’s programme in Mechanical Engineering zooms in on one of these disciplines.

Nanotechnology

The two-year MSc programme in Nanotechnology focuses on the design, creation and study of functional materials, structures, devices and systems by directly controlling matter on the nanometre scale.

Sustainable Energy Technology

The Master’s programme in Sustainable Energy Technology (SET) enables you to become an engineer with in-depth knowledge on renewable energy technologies.

Systems & Control

This two-year master’s programme teaches you how to control the behaviour of dynamic phenomena and systems in interaction with their environment.
