How can you diagnose diseases, such as cancer, at an early stage? Are there more sustainable ways to store energy to make the energy transition possible? 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 our two-year, English-taught MSc in Nanotechnology at University of Twente (UT) , you become an expert in this exciting, upcoming field.
If you’re interested in the upcoming field of nanoscience and nanoengineering, then the University of Twente is the place to follow your Master’s. Not only is our university the only research university in the Netherlands to offer a Master’s in Nanotechnology, the region Twente is also home to the MESA+ Institute, one of the world’s leading institutes in nanotechnology.
In this research institute, over 500 scientists collaborate on cutting-edge research at the highest level in the field of materials science, lab-on-a-chip technology, nanophotonics, nanoelectronics, membranes, MEMS and nanofluidics. Many high-tech spin-off companies are rooted in this institute and market developed technologies, such as Lionix, Micronit, LipoCoat, U-Needle, Medspray and IamFluidics, all of which operate within Twente and the MESA+ institute.
Most of our graduates continue with a PhD – at, for instance, Twente’s world-renowned MESA+ Institute. Others fulfil 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!
