Article 3 Admission commission 1. The Dean of the TNW Faculty establishes an admissions commission for the purpose of admitting students to the Master's programme for whom the Master's programme in question is not a follow-on Master's as stipulated in article 7.30a of the Act. 2. The commission, as stated in clause 1, has been authorised by the Executive Board (reference S&C/ /lk) to admit or reject applicants. 3. The admission commission consists of a minimum of two members, including: a. the Programme Director: b. in the case of foreign students, the professor of the Chair where the student wishes to graduate and the internationalisation coordinator; c. in the case of HBO (university of applied sciences)-students, the HBO coordinator; The Programme Director is the chairperson of the admission commission. If the chairperson of the commission deems it necessary, the secretary of the board of examiners and/or study advisor can be added to the commission. Article Admission to the programme 1. Direct admission to the programme can be obtained by: a. A degree from one of the Chemical Engineering Bachelor's programmes at a Dutch university. b. Proof of admission to the programme, issued by the admission commission. 2. When assessing a request for admission to the Master's programme, the admission commission may require that certain subjects are passed before proof of admission to the Master's programme is issued. 3. When issuing proof of admission to the Master's programme, the admission commission may award exemptions from certain components of the Master's, with the exception of the final project.. When issuing proof of admission to the Master's programme, the admission commission may stipulate conditions to the student for the specific Master's programme content and determine that admission is only to a certain track.. Rulings referred to in clause 3 and of this article made by the admission commission, require approval from the board of examiners. 6. Under certain conditions, Master's students from foreign universities who are well advanced in their Master's programme may be admitted to the Condensed Master s Programme of the Chemical Engineering Master's programme (article 6 of this programme appendix). 3 a. The Condensed Master s Programme comprises a minimum of 7 ECs. b. Only students who are granted an exemption totalling ECs by the Chemical Engineering programme's board of examiners can be admitted to the programme. c. A student is only admitted to the Condensed Master s Programme if the student's specific programme, including the exemption to be given, is approved by the Chemical Engineering programme's board of examiners. 7. Those whose prior education was in a technical or physical sciences area and who work in the commercial sector, may be admitted to the 'PT-course' training programme. The training programme is stipulated in article 7 of this programme appendix. Having passed the supplementary sections, those who have successfully completed the PT-I and PT-II courses, can be admitted to the programme's Master's examination. The procedure for admission to the Master's examination for those in possession of the PT-I and PT-II certificates, is stipulated in article 8 of this programme appendix. 8. The following applies to students with a Chemical or Chemical Engineering HBO-diploma: a. They can be admitted to a pre-structured pre-master's programme totalling 2 EC, whereby they are also given permission to do part of a stipulated homologation programme and a number of subjects from the Master's programme. b. If the admission commission detects serious gaps in a student's prior education, extra requirements totalling a maximum of 30 ECs may be stipulated besides the pre-structured pre-master's programme. c. If they meet the corresponding requirements stipulated by the board of examiners during their first year of study, they will be granted permission, if still applicable, to complete the pre-structured pre-master's programme and any extra requirements of the homologation programme, and to continue with the Master's programme as is applicable to them. d. After completing the pre-structured pre-master's programme and any extra requirements, they may be admitted to the Master's programme, whereby they are also exempted from the internship ( , 20 ECs), and instead of this they must include a homologation programme of ECs in their Master's programme. The pre-master's programme, homologation programme and the Master's programme for students with a Chemical Engineering or Chemistry HBO-diploma, determined by the board of examiners, are stipulated in article 9 of this programme appendix. The requirements which they must meet during their first study year are stipulated in article 10 of this programme appendix. 9. Students who have an Advanced Technology Bachelor's degree are admissible to the standard Master's programme if, within their Bachelor's programme, they have met the conditions for their pre-master's course list, stipulated in article 11 of this programme appendix. The content of the pre-master's course list chosen by the student determines if the student is to be admitted to the Molecules and Materials (MM), Process Technology (PT) or Water Technology (WT) tracks. 10. Students who have a foreign degree must be able to demonstrate their proficiency in English, both oral and written. Proof that their score on a certified test meets the standard may be an admission requirement. Namely, a total score of 6.0 or higher on the IELTS test or a score of 80 or higher on the internet-based TOEFL test 1. Students with a Bachelor's degree from countries with English only as the language of instruction in higher education 2 are exempted from this language requirement. 11. Students who are enrolled in the University of Twente's Chemical Engineering Bachelor's programme may submit a request to the Programme Director to take subjects from the Master's programme. In order to obtain this permission, all the following minimal conditions must be met: a. students have passed the first year of the Chemical Engineering programme; b. students have passed a minimum of 90 ECs from the B2 and B3 programmes and/or have obtained an exemption. c. the Master's subjects students wish to follow are explicitly stated in the request; d. the request from the student in question includes a study plan; e. the aforementioned plan has been signed by the study advisor.. The study plan referred to in d. and e. can demonstrate that a student's study progress will 1 2 IELTS: International English Language Testing System; TOEFL: Testing of English as a Foreign Language; see the UT website regarding admission to the Master's programmes: List of countries can be found on under General Admission Requirements. supposedly be delayed if the request is not granted, but can also show that a student has a high study rate and wishes to do more subjects than is minimally required by the Bachelor's examination. Before the Programme Director makes a decision, he/she requests advice from the board of examiners. Article Standard Master's programme The Master's programme has three specialisations (tracks), namely: 1. Molecules and Materials (M&M), 2. Process Technology (PT). 3. Water Technology (WT). The structure of the M&M and PT track programme is as follows: 1. four (PT) or five (M&M) compulsory subjects of ECs; 2. a compulsory project of 10 ECs (the design subject Process Plant Design for the PT track and two Advanced Molecules and Materials (AMM) projects of ECs for the M&M track); 3. the final project commission's chairperson determines 1 ECs of electives, in consultation with the student;. a number of electives, such that the programme in total comprises a minimum of 120 ECs, taking into account that: a maximum of ECs may be social science subjects for the purpose of the trip abroad;. an external internship of 20 ECs; 6. a final project of ECs within the chosen track. The so-called 'Contract Research Project for the purpose of the trip abroad may be registered as a Selected Topic (Capita Selecta) from a group (elective) or as the separate elective ' CR Study Tour Assignment (Opdracht Studiereis)'. The M&M and PT track compulsory subjects are: M&M track compulsory subjects PT track compulsory subjects Code Name ECs Code Name ECs AMM Organic materials science Chemical Reaction Engineering AMM Characterization Multiphase Reaction Technology AMM Inorganic materials science Process Equipment Design AMM Applications Thermodynamics and Flowsheeting AMM Molecular and Biomolecular chemistry and technology AMM Project Organic Materials AMM Project Inorganic Materials and Molecular Science and Technology Process Plant Design 10 The structure of the WT track programme is as follows: 1. a maximum of homologation subjects, which depending on the prior knowledge, are compulsory (maximum 19 ECs) 2. six profiling subjects of or ECs (total of 28 ECs) are compulsory for the chosen track 3. a track-specific design subject of 12 ECs is compulsory. a number of track-specific electives, such that the programme in total comprises a minimum of 120 ECs. an external internship of 20 ECs 6. a final project of 0 ECs within the WT track. The track is taught in cooperation with Wageningen University and the University of Groningen.

This is intended for people who have been educated in a technical field or in the field of applied physics, who work in the commercial sector and wish to acquire further qualifications in process technology. The course also provides refresher courses and extra training for or re-training of engineers (MSc., BSc) and chemists (BSc., Dr.). The course consists of two parts, PT-I and PT-II. The homologation part of PT-I consists of subjects from the Chemical Engineering Bachelor's programme. Knowledge of these subjects is required for the four compulsory subjects from the Process Technology track which comprise the second part of PT-I. PT-II consists of four electives and an individual assignment. The electives can serve as a means to broaden one's knowledge or as a necessary underpinning of the individual assignment. The individual assignment is carried out in the company where the participant works and is concluded by means of a written report. Supervision and assessment is carried out by one of the Chemical Engineering Master's programme lecturers. An abstract must be sent in advance to the course coordinator and the assignment must be approved by the company and the supervisor. Upon successfully completing the PT-I and PT-II courses, a Final Company Assignment can be carried out. If they also
