TU Delft has established a unique Master’s programme to help prepare scientists to fill key roles as communicators who can link the world of science and technology to society at large, and as educators who teach young people about science and technology.

About

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.

Tracks

  • Science Communication (English): The track provides you with the knowledge and skills to design and optimize strategic communication processes within and between organisations and society.
