Abstract

Advanced Technology is a unique bachelor program at the University of Twente that has a strong multidisciplinary character. The technical component is dominant but is clearly linked to social sciences with emphasis on entrepreneurship. The courses like “Introduction to Engineering” have a leading mathematical line that is applied to examples in mechanical and electrical engineering and physics and chemistry. Students follow several projects among which are the accelerometer project for designing, fabrication and testing, and an entrepreneurial project called Startrix for learning to write a business plan for bringing a real industrial product to the market.
