Interaction Technology (Transferminor / doorstroomminor)
This minor is meant for students from universities of Applied Sciences who would like to continue their education with an academic Master’s programme in Interaction Technology. If you have finished the minor successfully, you will be admitted to the Master’s programme after graduation from your Bachelor’s programme.
The main learning objective of the programme is to lay a sound theoretical foundation under the practical knowledge that you already obtained during your Bachelor’s programme.
The subjects covered are:
Mathematics for Interaction Technology (formal languages and machines, logic, combinatorics and probability theory, linear algebra, statistics), introduction to engineering, academic research skills and Interaction Technology (Artificial Intelligence, HCI Project, Research Methodology).
The language of instruction and assessment is English.
The course codes may change before the academic year.
N.B. The learning agreement signed by the student and his Examination Board must have reached the UT-contact person before the enrolment ends.
This minor aims to attract students from universities of applied sciences (HBO) who have the adequate motivation and capacities to complete an English-taught degree programme on university level.
The minor is open to students from related programmes such as technische informatica (technical computer science), Informatica (computer science), telematica (telematics), embedded systems and elektrotechniek (electrical engineering). In order to determine whether your current studies is sufficiently related, please check: www.doorstroommatrix.nl and the website of interaction technology.
For those students whose current bachelor’s studies involves a non-related programme, admission is determined on an individual basis by the Admission Board.
In addition, the University of Twente assumes that students who start this transfer minor possess sufficient prior knowledge in mathematics (preferably Wiskunde B on so-called VWO-level) and that they are sufficiently proficient in English (benchmark score in this regard: IELTS 6.0 or TOEFL 80). Students are supposed to assess themselves whether their competencies in this respect match with the recommended levels. Additional knowledge can be obtained by e.g. Babel en Boswell Bèta or Open Universiteit (or for Saxion students by following a preparatory course in math at Saxion).
Considering the programme of the minor you may realize that these requirements are related firmly to its contents: if you don’t meet the requirements, your chances of finishing the minor programme are low.
You need to have completed 120 EEs from the first two years of your current related bachelor’s studies before starting this transfer minor. Please send with your signed Learning agreement a grading list containing all your bachelor courses with the obtained marks.
In general the courses of the pre-master programme are assessed with an individual exam and/or (group)assignment(s). Important: You must complete your pre-master programme within 1 year, with a maximum of 2 opportunities per course.
