Science Communication track

A key aspect of the Science Communication curriculum in the Master Science Education and Communication is making science communication as effective, accessible and professional as possible. The issue of content is addressed - how to bring complex subjects across to key audiences? The issue of policy and strategy is addressed - what objectives must be formulated and along what pathways is the communication directed? Staff and students rethink and redesign science communication processes. Students develop into science communication engineering partners for industrial leaders, scholars, politicians and lay audiences to help them in their many problems and challenges in our knowledge-based society. As an MSc student you will join Delft University of Technology or the University of Twente and their affiliated national and international research programmes. Many opportunities for doctoral research studies are available. 

The two-year MSc programme (120 EC* credit points) builds on a Bachelor of Science degree and is a mixture of advanced-level science and technology and communications subjects. Graduates need to become specialists yet also all-round exponents of science and technology as well as communication, and thus deepen and broaden knowledge gained in their Bachelor’s. The programme covers academic subjects, technological design skills and a research thesis in which science and technology are combined with communication. 

A largely identical core programme can be followed at each of the three locations. Students benefit from the specific strengths of all the three universities by choosing a specialization at any of the three. The admission procedures, teaching and examination regulations and academic calendars at all three universities have been carefully matched. Students are registered at the location of their choice, but they are automatically co-registered at the other two locations to ensure access to the facilities of all three.
