What you will learn
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:
Science Education Track (Teacher training)
With this teacher 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.
Science Communication Track
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.
