Chemical Engineering and Chemistry

Masterclass Experience Chemistry

For whom?

This 5-day masterclass is for driven 5-vwo students who are interested in chemistry.


The Experience Chemistry Masterclass will take place in January and February. The masterclass is on school days, so make sure to discuss your participation with your school! To prevent you having to miss the same classes every time, we made sure the masterclass days are on different weekdays, spread over 4 or 5 weeks. 

What is the Experience Chemistry Masterclass?

During the masterclass, you will work on interesting but tough research topics. In a team of four to six enthusiastic, driven students from different high schools, you will do a scientific study of your own, related to the research we do at the Chemical Engineering and Chemistry department. You can choose from number of projects, each with its own supervisor. Lectures will show you the theoretical background of the theme.
