MSc Track Science Communication


Join in our footsteps

Below current Science Communication students from different TU Delft Faculties share their experiences with the Science Communication MSc track. For more information regarding this track, please visit sec.msc.tudelft.nl, download the SC brochure, or contact the Science Communication Study Coordinator.

Eligibility for the Science Communication track

The Science Communication track can be followed as a 2-year single MSc degree track, a 3-year double MSc degree track, or a 1-year track if you have already completed another MSc programme. You can check your eligibility via the doorstroommatrix, or by contacting the Science Communication Study Coordinator.

Student experiences

Noor Buttinger – Faculty of Technology, Policy & Management
“I think that Science Communication connects very well with the TPM content of my Master’s programme in Systems Engineering, Policy Analysis and Management. Science Communication teaches you how to help people who speak ‘different languages’ to translate and transfer their knowledge, for example within Multi-Actor Systems. You connect people in a way, while still being engaged in science and technology-related topics. Science Communication helps me to look beyond one discipline and keeps me curious.”

 

Daan Vos - Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering

“My MSc programme in Strategic Product Design focuses on new product development. The Science Communication track provides a complementary perspective by taking a broader view, by looking in particular at stakeholders and their interests. The SC programme enables me to improve my understanding of the complexity of product development and provides insights into how to realise project goals when people with different opinions or interests are involved.”

 

 

José Chan - Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment

“After a Bachelor’s in Architecture, I made the decision to study Science Communication. While it might seem a huge step, Science Communication is actually linked to the role of architects in society. They make decisions in processes that involve many actors, and not everyone agrees with their decisions. In Science Communication you learn how to deal with such situations, and the programme highlights many sides of the architectural profession that I hadn’t been aware of before.”

 

 

Thomas Schenderling - Faculty of Applied Sciences

“During my Bachelor’s degree I studied Applied Physics. Many of my friends decided to pursue a Master’s in physics. This did not seem to suit me; the number of science subjects became too much for me. For me, that was the reason to study Science Communication: besides studying ‘pure’ science, I also wanted to be able to tell others about it. Both science and science communication – I like it!”

 

 

 

Roelof van den Berg - Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Sciences

“During my studies in Computer Sciences, I found that in critical situations such as disaster relief, people often have no overview of the situation. During the MSc track in Science Communication, I gained knowledge about communication processes. My two fields of study focus on what information can best be shared to create the necessary overview, and how to share this information. Now I can develop tools to create overviews of many situations, such as disaster relief scenarios.”

 

 

Steven Puylaert – Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences
“I am doing a double degree that combines the Master’s in Science Communication and Transport and Planning. During my years at TU Delft, I have seen many inspiring projects in the field of infrastructure, and I would like to see these go beyond the drawing board. Therefore I hope to contribute to the actual implementation of new innovations by using my knowledge of Science Communication.”
