Our society has a great need for people who can connect thinking and acting. To immediately test the feasibility of a new idea, for example. Master's programmes at Saxion focus on this connecting function. An extra degree, lasting one to two years. Would you like to deepen your knowledge and skills after obtaining your bachelor's degree? Or looking to boost your professional career? Saxion offers several international master's programmes that link theory and practice together.
About our master's programmes
We train young professionals to start their careers from an excellent position and working professionals to deepen their knowledge and skills. At our University of Applied Sciences, master's programmes are practice-oriented. You are involved in both exploring new possibilities and making them applicable. That is the big difference with the purely theoretical, Research University master's. After completing your professional master's at Saxion, you will obtain an internationally recognised degree as a MA, MBA or MSc, just like with a university master's degree.
All Saxion's Master's programmes
Master of Science in Applied Nanotechnology
The Master of Science in Applied Nanotechnology is unique in the Netherlands. The most distinguishing feature is its focus on the development of innovative micro- and nanotechnology-based products and applications. The fusion of elements from biology, chemistry, electrical engineering and physics results in nanotechnological materials and devices with unprecedented properties. The programme only starts in September and is taught entirely in English.
Master of Business Administration (MBA)
The MBA-programme prepares managers for organisation-wide leadership and decision-making. The programme approaches leadership development thematically. Personal development and coaching is a key theme to help you understand your value in the market and to develop plans to optimise your potential.
Facility and Real Estate Management
Our society faces major challenges in terms of sustainability of the built environment and the anticipation on disruptive technology. The increasingly dynamic market is less predictable. This calls for more agility in real estate planning and enables new business models to emerge in order to meet the need for flexibility, such as real estate-as-a-service and pay-per-use in facility management. We prepare future professionals for these complex strategic issues that require an interdisciplinary approach.
Master ICT: Software Engineering
The field of software engineering is always evolving. Innovative and disruptive technologies call for people like you to take them to a next level. How do you design software for systems-of-systems? What is necessary to automate data analytics using AI? In this master, you become an inspiring software specialist who can tackle complex software-related problems from design to realization and management.
Innovative Textile Development
The Master in Innovative Textile Development trains you to become an expert in textile innovation and after graduation, you hold a Master of Science degree. The unique feature is a focus on innovation in textiles in the broadest sense: both technical textiles and textiles for clothing. With this, it provides a unique master programme in the Netherlands and Western Europe. It will give an excellent springboard to the international textile market.
Master Robotics Systems Engineering
A brand new programme for game changers in the field of robotics! In this new master’s programme you will learn what it takes to develop robotic systems such as autonomous robots and smart industrial systems. The programme combines hands-on experience in systems engineering tools and methodology with state of the art robotics. As a professional master’s programme, we focus on the practical application of the latest technological development.
Master of Arts in Management (MA)
The Master of Arts in Management programme is for managers who wish to pursue studies at a higher level by adding a specialisation. Students build on their knowledge from the work environment and previous learning, whilst developing a critical theoretical perspective which will inform their own developing Management practice.
A master's degree expands your horizons. Every master-student has his or her own motivation for taking an extra course of study. To name a few:
- Your extensive expertise makes you a specialist in your field.
- You play a key role by exploring and realizing improvements (to an existing service, product or process, possibly within your own organisation).
- You get to know yourself and your key qualities better; ready to claim your position within an organisation.
Do you also want to develop yourself further? Then a master's at our University of Applied Sciences is definitely something for you!
As a University of Applied Sciences, we want to deliver professionals who are ready for the rapidly changing world. Our education is closely related to this.
Even during your master's you'll be working with people from the business and research world. You'll exchange ideas about the impact of innovations in your field. You'll explore the meaning of your profession for society or, for example, the role of people in a technological world.
If you have a completed bachelor's degree, you can take a master's degree. This bachelor's has to be connected to the field of study of the master's. For a number of master's, you first need work experience before you can start with the master's. So if you already work in a certain field and you want to deepen your knowledge, you can take a part-time master's course in addition to your work. In this way you can directly apply what you have learned in practice.
