Organisation: our departments
MC is spread over four departments, each with its own communication specialism:
The Marketing department is responsible for the marketing of the programmes available at the University of Twente and focuses primarily on attracting students for bachelor’s and master’s programmes of the 3rd level. The purpose of the department is to enhance the inflow and recruitment, with a proper balance in quality and quantity. The department’s core tasks are the tightening and realisation of the recruitment policy, preparing and implementing the annual plan, and action plans for the programmes, recruitment & PR (events, activities, resources), editing, design & production of (online) means of communication, management and further development of the CRM system, management reporting for insight into conversion and performance, commitment and coordination of the Study Information Office and student teams, an advisory role towards the Executive Board and faculties on the use of marketing, recruitment and PR.
The Department of Corporate Communication is responsible for the development and execution of the entire communication policy of the University of Twente. It also translates the institutional strategy into a systematic deployment of communication to various targets: internal communication to employees and students, external communication to alumni and other relations of the university. The department is responsible for the brand awareness, i.e. monitoring the image and corporate branding of our university, namely ‘high tech, human touch’. Other tasks include advising the Executive Board, institutes, directorates and service departments on communication strategy, policy and other communication issues.
The department develops corporate campaigns and communication formats, such as the corporate brochure, the annual report, the magazine and newsmail. Furthermore, it organises corporate events such as open days, congresses and official visits. The Traffic team is responsible for the realisation of media, design and printed matter, audiovisuals and the development of corporate gifts. For the time being, the Department of Corporate Communication is also responsible for the academic ceremonies such as the ‘Opening academic year’, ‘Dies celebration’, ‘Innovation lecture’ and inaugural speeches.
The Medialab team focuses on media and innovation, primarily supporting the inflow goal of the UT. In addition, we help to strengthen the online profile and visibility of the UT brand. We do this by advising, inspiring and training colleagues and together with them developing digital products that enable us to achieve the UT goals. The team coordinates all tasks in the field of printing, corporate identity, brand architecture, audiovisual productions, websites and social media within the UT.
