Overview
The University of Twente is a young, entrepreneurial research university with proven excellence in the field of new technologies and their impact on society and humanity. The university develops technologies that shape the future: ICT, biotechnology, and nanotechnology. Our researchers are among the world’s leaders in those fields. The University of Twente is unique in its capacity to transcend the boundaries between disciplines. The interface between technologies: that is where important and intriguing innovations occur. Twente’s key research areas include nanotechnology, biomedical technology, ICT, sustainable energy and governance. We do not approach new technologies in isolation, but in relation to behavioural, social, and management sciences, combining high tech with a human touch. As a modern, entrepreneurial university, Twente is renowned for its engineering ability in supporting industry and commerce, and its creation of new innovative businesses. This perspective provides unexpected solutions in areas such as health, sustainable energy, water, learning and safety. In our 50 year history, over 700 spin-off companies have been launched onto the market. The University of Twente is the only campus university in the Netherlands. Here 9,300 students and 3,300 employees study, work and unwind in the beautiful green grounds. The attractive campus, built on a country estate just outside the city of Enschede, provides an academic, social and safe setting where students quickly become active members of a thriving community. The University of Twente has state-of-the-art facilities for teaching and research and an excellent library. It also has the lowest cost of living and accommodation of any Dutch university. The university offers a variety of services on campus: a wide range of sports facilities, a medical centre, counselling facilities, a hotel, worship facilities and much more. Students can meet up at one of the campus restaurants, cafés or bars, all of which offer affordable meals. With over 50 sports and cultural associations active on campus, our students have access to a wide range of leisure activities. The nearby city of Enschede is buzzing with student life and home to about 20,000 students. Enschede is close to the German border, but still only a two-hour drive or train journey from Amsterdam. It is also within easy distance of major European capitals like Berlin, London and Paris. The city is modern and lively and has a rich industrial heritage, which shows in the many well-preserved historic buildings. Large-scale urban renewal has also given Enschede a new skyline, featuring eye-catching contemporary architecture.
