The Radboud Master’s programme in Science collaborates with two internationally renowned institutes: the Institute for Molecules and Materials (IMM) and the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour. The programme offers students freedom to follow their own research interests.
Consists of a major internship within one of the Nijmegen research groups, a minor internship in another research group, both with theory components, elective courses and philosophy. Within the area you can choose from several specialisations ranging from material science to neural networks and from neurobiology to organic chemistry and nanoscience. For the internships there is a personal supervisors with whom the subjects and research programmes are determined. There is the opportunity to do part of the internships abroad.
The programme is closely linked to two internationally recognised Nijmegen institutes: the Institute for Molecules and Materials and the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour. Both have state-of the-art equipment capable of identifying the characteristics of molecules, materials and the human brain. There are the magnets in the High Field Magnet Laboratory (HFML), the NMR and MRI facilities, the free electron laser and the NanoLab. Little wonder that both institutes attract top scientists from all over the world.
Most of our graduates continue to do a PhD, either in Nijmegen or elsewhere. Our institutes have various vacancies every year. Graduates also find employment as researchers and managers in industry, in the commercial sector and in research institutes.
