(formerly known as the Academy of Technology and Liberal Arts & Sciences - ATLAS)

University College Twente offers the only Honours Bachelor’s programme in the Netherlands that combines Technology with Liberal education. It takes a unique approach to engineering education aspired to educate a different kind of engineers and global citizens who are capable of addressing global challenges and designing solutions in a wide range of social, cultural and political contexts.

As global challenges increase and new technologies emerge, our future calls for a New Engineer: an academic all-rounder combining technological and societal approaches to design solutions that can be implemented in a range of social, cultural and political contexts.


ATLAS is aimed at students with a broad interest, strong ambitions and pioneering spirit. As an ATLAS trailblazer you are driven by technology, but also socially engaged. You will acquire a solid foundation in both engineering and social science concepts, as well as develop your creativity, flexibility, leadership and communication skills to become an academic all-rounder. 


This English taught bachelor's programme is structured around real-world global issues. You will develop original solutions and learn how to turn them into real changes that make the world a better place. Part of your curriculum is a ‘personal pursuit’ that focuses on developing your personal interest: music, sports, a second language, development work or attending an international summer school.


With an ATLAS BSc Honours degree you will be eligible for prestigious technical or social science Master’s programmes in the Netherlands or abroad.
