The SEC MSc programme builds on a Bachelor of Science degree. Students will explore the scientific and engineering topics they studied at the undergraduate level in greater depth, while being introduced to education and science communication topics. The MSc provides students with the knowledge and skills to articulate and communicate important messages to fellow scientists and to a lay public. Graduates will acquire the skills to design and deliver effective communication and education in the domain of science and technology.Programme tracks
Science Education and Communication offers 2 tracks:Science Education Track (Teacher training)
With this training track you can qualify as an upper secondary school teacher in the fields of Computer Science, Physics, Design, Chemistry or Mathematics. Teachers at this level have thorough knowledge and pedagogical skills and teach in upper HAVO and VWO.Science Communication Track
TU Delft has established a unique Master’s programme to help prepare students to fill key roles as communicators who can link the world of science and technology to society at large. You can enrol in the Science Communication track for either a single MSc degree or for a double MSc degree. The double degree track allows you to obtain two MSc diplomas in the course of a three-year programme, combining Science Communication with a scientific or technical MSc degree programme.
Specialising in communication boosts your employability and helps take science and technology to the next level.Looking beyond science and technology
“Twenty-first-century engineers will need to be trusted innovators, master integrators, enterprise enablers, technology stewards, and knowledge handlers,” according to Joseph Bordogna, former director of the US National Science Foundation. Future engineers will be expected to have much more than just a solid knowledge of, and skills in, science and technology.
Communication is an essential part of engineering. It raises the quality of your work and increases your employability. If you love science and engineering and want to make them work in practice, and you like working with people, then the Science Communication track is ideal for you.Double degree
The Science Communication track can be followed as a single track or as a double degree track. The double degree track allows you to obtain two MSc diplomas during a three-year programme, combining Science Communication with a technical MSc programme.Eight reasons to go for the Science Communication track
The track provides you with the knowledge and skills to design and optimize strategic communication processes within and between organisations and society. As such, you contribute to the quality of new and emerging science and technology, by attuning innovations to societal demands. The courseswithin the Science Communication track teach you to look at professional communication practices from a scientific perspective. You learn how to study, design and participate in effective and accurate communication between different stakeholders, ranging from other scientific experts to representatives from industry, policymakers and the general public
Applicants seeking admission to the MSc Programme in Science Communication should have a Bachelor’s degree in one of the natural sciences or technology subjects, related to those taught at TU Delft.
If you have already completed a suitable Master’s Programme and decide to enroll in the Science Communication track at a later stage, you may be able to complete the programme in less than the standard two years, as you may be exempted from some of the scientific course curriculumApart from the single MSc track, students are also offered the opportunity to obtain a double degree (MSc + MSc = 180 ECTS). This three-year double degree programme is available for students interested in acquiring knowledge and skills in communication, but who also wish to obtain a technological degree at the MSc level. For those students, the thesis for the technological MSc and the communication programme can be integrated into a single graduation thesis for both degrees.
No work experience is required.
