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.
Science Education and Communication offers 2 tracks:
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.
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.

Always verify the dates on the programme website.
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.
Numerous scholarships are awarded to admitted students with exceptional promise and outstanding academic achievement by the university, its faculties, departments and industry partners.
