Education in nanotechnology

Step into the world of the extremely small

Nanotechnology is the branch of knowledge that is engaged in the extremely small; the scale of a few atoms and molecules. The nano-world is fascinating because at this scale materials suddenly take on surprising and completely novel properties. Create new and smart materials that play an essential role in the future solutions for societal challenges as health, ICT and sustainability. Have the chance to do your research in a world-class, cutting-edge lab: the MESA+ NanoLab. Step into the world of the extremely small: start a career in nanotechnology at the University of Twente.

Educational programmes

The University of Twente offers a diversity of educational programmes focused on Nanotechnology.

Master's programme Nanotechology

Following the Nanotechnology Master's programme at the University of Twente means a flying start to a wide range of career options. In an environment of world-class labs and state-of-the-art facilities you’ll be trained in characterization, fabrication and design of nanomaterials. You will receive personal guidance throughout the programme and benefit from a thorough academic training that covers everything from research skills to setting up a business.

MESA+ School for Nanotechnology - MSc & PhD combined

The PhD student and envisaged PhD supervisor put together a tailor-made program consisting of at least 30 EC. The Twente Graduate School (TGS)’s PhD Introductory Workshop (which includes an academic integrity course for a total of 1,5EC) and the 1st year bootcamps (4,5 EC) are mandatory.

One-week workshop “Fundamentals of Nanotechnology”

This workshop provides you with the complete scope of what nanotechnology is about. The workshop has been set up for PhD students in nanotechnology as well as MSc students in Nanotechnology or any other related topic, but is also open for others that are interested. Some background in science is desired.
