Twente Graduate School

Twente Graduate School coordinates high-quality educational programmes based on topics closely related to the work of the university’s research institutes, taught and supervised by expert researchers. We offer structured PhD programmes for outstanding graduate students who are keen to pursue a career in scientific research. Next to the PhD research project leading to a dissertation, the equivalent of 30 European Credits in a broad variety of discipline related, academic skills and career development courses enable students to specialize in their research area they are interested in while broadening their perspective on the societal context of technology and research.
