U Delft / Nuffic Neso Mexico scholarship
Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) is ranked the 15th university of technology in the world according to the Times Higher Education – QS World University Rankings for Technology.
The Faculty of Applied Sciences is a research-oriented faculty at the frontier of contemporary engineering science – a world-class training ground for future leaders in scientific professional practice and research. It is the largest of TU Delft’s eight faculties.
The researchers of the Faculty are active in nano-science and nano chemical engineering , nano-biology, bio-technology, chemical engineering and transport phenomena, optics and imaging as well as radiation (including a small research nuclear reactor).
Much of the research being carried out at the Faculty is interdisciplinary because many of the important developments in science are found at the interface of disciplines. We believe that this is a logical and evolving trend in the world of science and innovation.
We know that advanced understanding of complicated theories cannot be achieved only by passive learning. Our instructional method is based on the principles of research-oriented education and learning by doing so that you can gain hands-on experience. Research-oriented education means that students are in contact with the researchers and their environment. All of our MSc programmes are fully in English and conclude with a research thesis.
This scholarship opportunity is open to applicants for the following MSc programmes:
- Applied Physics – covers phenomena ranging from the infinitesimally small – subatomic particles – to the unimaginably large – the universe. This programme combines elements of a standard engineering programme with theoretical courses. It includes applications of applied physics in nanotechnology, seismic exploration, robotics, medical imaging, biophysics, communication technology and energy-efficient industrial processing. Students will gain experience in experimental techniques, theoretical analysis, simulation and modeling. `Bachelor degree required: Applied Physics or Physics
- Chemical Engineering – subjects include molecular science, design and analysis of chemical reactors, and the application of chemical engineering in manufacturing processes with a strong emphasis on innovative thinking. Many specializations available include product and process engineering, catalysis engineering, nano-structured materials, materials energy conversion and storage, self-assembling systems, opto-electronic materials, nano-organic chemistry, multiphase systems, radiation and isotopes, and fundamental aspects of materials and energy. Bachelor degree required: Applied Chemistry or Chemical Engineering
- Life Science & Technology – an interdisciplinary study combining the fundamentals and applied knowledge from biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, informatics, pharmacology and mathematics. This programme focuses on the development and implementation of knowledge, methods and technologies from physics for living cells and mechanisms that form the basis of life. The following tracks are offered: Biochemical Engineering, Biocatalysis, and Cell Factory.
Bachelor degree required: Biochemical Engineering, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Molecular Biology or Pharmaceutical Sciences
- Sustainable Energy Technology – a unique multidisciplinary programme exploring the sustainable energy technologies possible through sources such as wind, solar power, biomass, hydrogen technology and electrical power engineering. The main focus is on the scientific and technological aspects of energy technology, with a quarter of the first year programme being devoted to societal and economic aspects of innovations in energy technology.
