Master Honours programme

Do you want to receive the latest updates?

Are you talented, intellectually interested, and motivated? Then the Master Honours Programme is the right place for you!

The Master Honours programme is a 15 EC programme aimed at students who want to enrich their study experience. Students can choose from three tracks, each having a unique character and developmental goals.


Please note that the Master Honours programme is not a Master Study but an extracurricular programme for current Master students of the University of Twente.

Change leaders

The Master Honours Change Leaders focuses on developing one’s personal leadership skills during the execution of projects. Examples of projects are: organizing an event as a board member of an association, starting your own business, or initiating a project. Furthermore, an internship or MSc thesis project potentially qualifies as a change project in which your leadership skills will be honed by this programme. 

Design Honours

The Master Design Honours is a programme that will guide you through a full design process, integrating both technological and societal challenges. These challenges are rooted in the research of various engineering labs at the University of Twente. In this programme, you will work in small design teams. You will develop your skills in mastering complex design problems and creating novel solutions. 

Research Honours

The Master Research Honours is an individually tailored programme that offers you additional knowledge and skills in the areas of research management, research publishment, and (PhD) research proposal development. Through extra courses, training, and meetings, the program supports excellent UT master students that are in their graduation phase to develop knowledge and skills in the area of academic research.
