Professor de Winter and Mrs. de Winter were highly involved in UT programmes and with ‘their’ students. Their heirs continue to be involved in their honour by awarding a scholarship of € 7,500 to an excellent female student.
The Professor de Winter Scholarship is provided by the inheritors of Professor de Winter and his wife. Professor de Winter was one of the founders of the research and education department of the ‘Technische Hogeschool Twente’ – which later became the University of Twente. In 1969 he became the first career counselor of Technical Physics. At that time, he had already been appointed as professor of Applied Physics at the department of Electrical Engineering.
The next Professor de Winter scholarship is available for the academic year 2022/2023.Scholarship value
Please note: This scholarship is meant as a compensation for study related costs. It is up to the scholarship student to decide how to spend the money. No costs (e.g. tuition fees) will be paid on your behalf.TWO-YEAR STUDY PROGRAMME
The selected study programmes for this scholarship have a duration of two years. Students can receive an additional scholarship amount equal to that in the first year to cover the expenses of the second year. However, the scholarship will only be continued during the second when students meet the process requirements for the scholarship. These progress requirements in order to get a scholarship for the second year are:
As an applied mathematician, you occupy a key position in the scientific world. Through mathematical models, you grasp the essence of a problem and see links between seemingly unrelated phenomena.
Apply yourself to one of the oldest fields of science: physics. Gain fundamental insights into your own research field while honing your research skills.
Biomedical Engineering is about the design and development of healthcare technology to improve lives: from rehabilitation robots and artificial organs, to imaging techniques and prosthetics.
Business Information Technology
This Master’s helps you to become an expert in IT-based business innovation, able to devise new services and radically improve the way businesses work with the use of IT.
Chemical Science & Engineering
This Master’s will help you to develop novel chemical processes, materials and molecules and contribute to innovations that benefit our society in areas such as health, water, food and sustainability.
Civil Engineering & Management
If you are eager to focus on both the technical and non-technical aspects of civil engineering projects and systems, then the Master’s in Civil Engineering and Management is the programme for you.
Computer Science is omnipresent in modern society. Latest hardware and software developments are crucial in domains such as social media, security, health, energy, ICT systems, finance and telecom.
Construction Management & Engineering
Complex, innovative and multidisciplinary projects in a dynamic environment require a new breed of engineers who are able to expertly combine engineering knowledge with management skills.
This master's challenges you to develop new methods and technologies for high- tech electronics-based systems in nanotechnology, robotics, electronics, telecommunication or biomedical systems.
This master’s focuses on the design of embedded systems: the hardware and software that control a device, process or system, e.g. smart phones, pacemakers, chip sets or navigation systems.
Industrial Design Engineering
Combine design and engineering in creating innovative products that enrich people’s lives. During this two-year Master’s, you learn to optimise both products and the development processes involved.
Industrial Engineering & Management
Become a creative, multidisciplinary manager with both technological know-how and engineering and management skills and optimise processes and solve problems in complex, globally active organisations.
Interaction Technology combines principles from electrical engineering and IT with the analysis of human behaviour and storytelling.
Mechanical engineers focus on the design, analyses and maintenance of machinery, structures and products. The Master’s programme in Mechanical Engineering zooms in on one of these disciplines.
The two-year MSc programme in Nanotechnology focuses on the design, creation and study of functional materials, structures, devices and systems by directly controlling matter on the nanometre scale.
Sustainable Energy Technology
Do you feel called upon to make a valuable contribution to the sustainable energy transition? Become an expert in the development, implementation and integration of sustainable energy technologies.
Systems & Control
This two-year master’s programme teaches you how to control the behaviour of dynamic phenomena and systems in interaction with their environment.
