The MSc in Nanotechnology at University of Twente (UT)  is a unique programme. No other university in the Netherlands offers you the chance to study for a Master’s degree in Nanotechnology. Moreover, you will conduct experiments in the world-renowned Nanolab, and you get the opportunity to do your Master’s assignment within our MESA+ Institute.

Like the research generally carried out in this field, our Master’s programme in Nanotechnology is multidisciplinary. On the one hand, it will offer you the chance to explore different research areas within the wider field of nanotechnology. On the other, you will be able to specialize in a specific research field of your choice, such as bionanotechnology and nanochemistry, nanophysics or nanosystems and -devices.


A Master’s degree in Nanotechnology gives you a wide range of career options. Upgrading your Bachelor’s degree in Applied Physics, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering or any other relevant subject with a Master’s degree in Nanotechnology is a smart move. A degree in the emerging, cutting-edge fields of Nanotechnology sets you apart from other science and engineering professionals and makes you highly sought after. 

Many of our graduates go on to study for a PhD, with opportunities right here at the UT’s MESA+ Institute, but also throughout the world. You will conduct independent research for a number of years under the supervision of a senior researcher within a research group, culminating in the public defence of your PhD dissertation.


This programme holds NVAO accreditation.
