How can you diagnose diseases, such as cancer, at an early stage? Are there more sustainable ways to store energy? And how can you make a sensor that checks water pollution levels on a large scale? These important, societal questions all have one thing in common: nanotechnology might be the answer! In the Master’s in Nanotechnology at the University of Twente, you become an expert in this exciting, upcoming field.
In this two-year, English-taught Master’s, you will learn to invent, design and develop innovative solutions on the extremely small nanoscale, by studying and manipulating the changes that the physical and chemical properties of a material undergo at a scale of less than 100 nanometres. You combine disciplines such as physics, chemistry, electrical and biomedical engineering. The applications of nanotechnology are nearly endless, with three main application areas: Health, ICT and sustainability. As a student, you get unique access to its state-of-the art NanoLab of the world-renowned MESA+ Institute, including one of the largest cleanrooms in Europe. Most graduates continue with a PhD – at the MESA+ Institute, for instance. Others fulfill jobs at all kinds of high-tech companies, creating new materials, technologies, or products in sectors such as energy, water, healthcare, or electronics, and some even go on to start their own companies!

The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) is a student-centred system based on the student workload required to achieve the objectives of a programme of study. Its aim is to facilitate the recognition of study periods undertaken by mobile students through the transfer of credits. The ECTS is based on the principle that 60 credits are equivalent to the workload of full-time student during one academic year.
