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!
