Saturday 23 june 2018

This year's Open House takes place on Saturday 23 June 2018 (11.00 – 16.00 hrs). The beautiful campus of the University of Twente will be filled with activities in which you are able to experience the possibilities and importance of science and technology in a fun way. This is our opportunity to give people a better idea of the diverse education and research that goes on within the UT. We offer workshops and demos in an international atmosphere. From 11.00 hrs till 16.00 hrs, we stand ready to welcome you, your family and your friends. 

Visit the Open House

You are most probably used to be at the University of Twente for attending classes or for work but how about visiting our university on a Saturday to have some fun together with your family or friends and get an idea of how UT approaches science and technology? Plenty of activities, workshops and demonstrations for all ages and interests on the 23rd June 2018. This is your opportunity to visit the University of Twente behind the scenes. Invite your family, friends and acquaintances to come along and join the activities:

You can participate in workshops and demos in a festive and international setting. You can experience a virtual reality in the Virtual Reality & Smart Industry Lab, get a hold of wind speeds of 100 km/h in the wind tunnel or step into the shoes of a real researcher in the MESA + Nanolab.

During the Open House the grand finale of the RED Engineers Challenge will take place in building de Waaier. This is a design and tinkering challenge for primary school pupils. 

Here you can find a list of activities you can visit during the open house and you can download the programme guide. At the Open House there are printed copies of this guide available.
