The University of Twente is a leading international player in the field of Fluid Dynamics.
There are huge challenges for mankind to which fluid dynamics contributes in a major way: fluid dynamics is about flow in the ocean and in the atmosphere, about the blood circulation in your body, bacteria, and it will play a major role in renewable energy production.
At the University of Twente, we connect the fundamental physics of fluids to engineering: We offer top-level research and education in the field of fluid dynamics, as part of different study and research programmes.
Do you want to learn and work across disciplines within the field of fluid dynamics? Do you want to benefit from top facilities, such as the world-famous Max Planck Center for Complex Fluid Dynamics and the MESA+ institute? And do you want to learn from the best scientists in the field of fluid dynamics?
Then the multidisciplinary master programme Fluid Dynamics might be the right fit for you. This programme brings together the field of engineering and the field of physics and focuses on solving fluid dynamics problems to develop new knowledge, technology and solutions for applications with scales ranging from nano-meters to many meters.
With a Bachelor’s in Applied Physics or Mechanical Engineering, you are generally directly admissible to this multidisciplinary programme. You register for the Master's that corresponds to your bachelor's degree.
So: if you have a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering, you sign up for the Master Mechanical Engineering. Upon enrolment, you opt for the multidisciplinary programme Fluid Dynamics.
Instead of pursuing a professional career in fluid dynamics right away after obtaining your master’s, you can opt to follow a PhD programme at Twente Graduate School (TGS). This involves spending four years studying a particular research area in-depth at one of our research groups. Obtaining your PhD will earn you the title of Doctor (Dr).
