University of Twente (UT)

The University of Twente is a research university in the Netherlands that offers students, scientists and educators from around the world the best possible conditions.

Our research and education is aimed at making a difference in today’s society, while preparing the next generation for the future. In this pursuit, the entrepreneurial mindset and global awareness of talented scientists, educators and students lead to move beyond differences, disciplines, borders. The cross disciplinary way of working that characterizes the university opens up unexpected possibilities - especially in combination with creativity and excellence in scientific disciplines. The distinctive educational model, engineering approach and open culture generate new ideas, new energy, new ways forward. 

Today we are a catalyst to many high-tech communities and sectors with strong partnerships in a wide range of industries and societal domains. We participate in groundbreaking, globe-spanning networks and programmes. We collaborate in networks consisting of academics as well as businesses and governments. 

The campus of the University of Twente is an international hot spot: a meeting place for students, for scientists with a multidisciplinary focus and for companies and governments in their quest for knowledge. Our facilities for top research are state-of-the-art. In the modern laboratories our researchers work together on simulations, tests and prototypes with external parties.
