Chemical Engineering Master’s entitled ‘top program’ for fifth time in a row

Eindhoven University of Technology is maintaining its performance in the Master’s study programs. This is evident from the figures and the ranking of the University Guide to Master’s Studies by the Center for Higher Education Information (C.H.O.I.). As in 2017, TU/e scored 63.5. And, just like last year, four programs in Eindhoven received the predicate ‘top study’. Besides the Master’s program Chemical Engineering (80), also Innovation Sciences (80), Medical Engineering (80) and Science and Technology of Nuclear Fusion (76) may call themselves ‘top rated programs’ in 2018. 
 
Three out of five assessed Chemical Engineering Master's programs are top-level courses. With a total of 80 Eindhoven scores just above the masters from Enschede (78) and Groningen (78) and leaves Leeuwarden (54) and Delft (54) behind too. The chemistry masters at general universities have scores between 62 and 68, which gives TU/e the highest score of all chemistry-related Master’s programs in the Netherlands.

Eindhoven continues to do well in the overall ranking of Dutch universities, behind only the universities of Twente and Wageningen. Together with Groningen University, TU/e occupies 3rd place. 
 
The Study Guide has also produced a salary prospectus for postgraduates for the first time. “The Master with a more technical approach usually offers good job prospects: the average salary of graduates in systems engineering, for example, is quite high,” reports the 2018 edition. Based on data from research institute ROA, C.H.O.I. suggests that the general job opportunities in technology are good, just like last year. 
 
The University Guide to Master’s Studies makes a qualitative comparison of related study programs in higher education. The data in this book include information from the Research Center for Education and Employment (ROA), educational statistics from the VSNU, data from the university monitor (conducted by the research institute IVA and commissioned by the VSNU) and accreditation data from the NVAO. Use was also made of results from the National Student Survey and the national Study Choice Database, both from Studiekeuze123. The processing and analysis of data was carried out by the Center for Higher Education Information.
