The Faculty: understanding, co-designing and evaluating innovation in society
The UT was acclaimed as ‘the best university of technology’ in 2017 and the BMS Faculty is larger than the social sciences faculties at any other technical university in the Netherlands. The Faculty’s aim is to play a pivotal role in understanding, co-designing and evaluating innovation in society. Home to 4 clusters and 20 departments, BMS covers disciplines such as psychology, business administration, public administration, communication sciences, philosophy and educational sciences. Our research is organized around 5 thematic programmes: Health, Resilience, Industry, Learning, and Emerging Technologies & Society.
Fusing technology and human creativity
Advances in technology and human creativity often stimulate one another. Our research reflects this fusion, as we, 1) examine human-technology relations, 2) investigate human, organizational and institutional patterns; and 3) use a design approach to develop interventions aimed at positively impacting society. BMS has invested much to support this work, and houses a high-end lab with the latest tools for conducting innovative research. The research is strongly connected to our UT institutes in the field of Digital Society and TechMed.
High Tech Human Touch
At the UT, we believe technology and people have a leading role to play in providing solutions for complex societal challenges worldwide. Central to our vision is our High Tech Human Touch philosophy, in which we fuse social and technological sciences and focus on designing solutions for real-world problems.
Drawing on this unique cross-disciplinary approach and excellence in scientific disciplines, our scientists, teachers and students work daily on tackling these global challenges, such as improving healthcare and resilience in society, or preparing for the digital age.
We’re proud to have developed a unique project-based learning approach referred to as TEM (Twente Education Model), designed to familiarize all of our Bachelor’s students with learning while working on real-world issues.
University of diversity
At the UT, we embrace and encourage diversity along many different axes. We work hard to improve diversity, inclusion and equity within the campus community. Our constant aim is to create an inclusive community with an open and supportive environment for research, education and valorization.
