The full-time program (18 months) is especially suited for you if you have just graduated, or will soon graduate with a Bachelors degree, and/or if you are an international student without a workplace within about 400 km from Arnhem. You will combine the theoretical program of the course with an extensive internship placement at a company. 

If you already have a job in the field and are able to come to Arnhem one day every two weeks, you can combine it with the part-time version of this course (2.5 to 3 years)

If you can demonstrate you have already covered certain units in the curriculum, you may be exempt from some of the course components. You may indicate this on your application.

All courses and examinations will be in English, so you need a good command of spoken and written English.

The level required for admission should be an equivalent of the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) score of 6.0 or higher, or TOEFL iBT score of 80 or higher, or diploma’s such as:

Cambridge Advanced (CAE) Grade C (180 - 184)

Cambridge Proficiency (CPE)

You will be admitted to the course if you have a :

Bachelors degree in Engineering, or a related technical discipline (Minimum GPA 2.8 out of 4.0). It is essential that you have good grades in mathematics and physics, as well as in track-related subjects.

June 15, 2019

If you would like to qualify for an internship placement at one of our partner organizations, apply until 30th of April of the year you would like to start the course.

If you wish to enroll in one of HAN’s international Masters degree courses, you need not worry about finding a suitable permanent place to live. We are happy to take care of this for you. The cost will be around €400 a month.

Masters courses at HAN are internationally oriented, giving graduates excellent job prospects. Graduates of our Masters courses have thorough knowledge and skills in the area of their profession as well as an international orientation. This is developed through internationally oriented modules and teaching methods, an international student population and close contacts with international businesses. Upon graduation, you receive a Masters title that is internationally recognized.

Automotive Systems

As an automotive engineer, you can be involved in all stages of the engineering process, from research through to market demand, design and development, production, and the evaluation of vehicle systems and components. You can contribute to building and evaluating an engine, transmission and chassis systems and components, including all the underlying control strategies and embedded electronic systems.

Control Systems

As a graduate of the master track Control Systems, you will have countless job opportunities in the technical branches of industry. You will also be qualified to work outside the technical sector: your expertise will be welcome in higher education, research institutes and development groups in companies and organizations. The general applicability of the course will also qualify you to teach Control Systems anywhere in the world.

Embedded Systems

As an embedded systems engineer, you develop innovative electronic products using microcontrollers and you are involved in the design, development, production an evaluation of all kinds of intelligent systems and smart devices. Using customer requirements and specifications, the embedded software/hardware developer develops the electronic hardware and software that make up a high-tech product.

Lean Engineering

The Lean Engineer may work in a variety of functions, technical as well as managerial. Examples are product engineer, production engineer, project manager, lean facilitator, R&D manager, operations manager and innovation manager.

Sustainable Energy

As a sustainable energy engineer, you will have an active role in the transition towards a sustainable energy system. You will work on the development of technology, models and smart control of sustainable systems for energy generation, storage or distribution at local, regional or (inter)national level. You may be employed by SMEs, grid operators, energy providers or government departments to develop innovative energy systems or play a role in maintaining the energy balance on an (inter)national scale.

An option as a Masters graduate is to further your career with a PhD.
