    Programme Description

    The 3TU MSc in Science Education and Communication seeks to create the science education and communication experts for the future.

    Science and technology are critically important in modern society - they are of great influence in people's lives. It is important that knowledge of technological developments and the scientific method is widely available and fine-tuned for various target groups. Young people need this knowledge to understand the world and make a career. Industry needs it to be aware of developments that will improve and create products, raise output, and enhance the standard of living.

    To provide information about such complex matters as science and technology, there is a demand for specialists who combine expertise in science and technology with expertise in education and communication. Science is complex; it often needs rephrasing, interpreting, translating and evaluating in order to reach 'the other party' effectively and to create conditions for a true dialogue. The 3TU MSc in Science Education and Communication seeks to create the science education and communication experts who can do exactly this.
