After graduation

The programme provides a thorough preparation for a position in the nanotechnology-based industry. The Twente region is a hotspot for hightech businesses focusing on the ‘commercialization’ of nano- and microtechnology. Our institution is cooperating intensively with several of these.  Furthermore, we have a close interaction with the University of Twente. The resulting platform offers excellent job opportunities in the fast growing field of micro- and nanotechnology.
