Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Engineering
Course summary In this two-year research programme you will get the perfect training to work as an innovation specialist. You will learn how new ideas or inventions are transformed into marketable innovations.
Course description This two-year Master's programme focuses on the dynamics of emerging technologies and innovation. After completing the programme, students will be able to link new technologies to human and economic wants and needs, as well as to the grand societal challenges. What does innovation mean for economic growth, welfare, health care, climate change, energy security, mobility and sustainability? This programme will be of particular interest to students with a background in technology, health, life sciences, natural sciences or industrial engineering that wish to extend their technical background with knowledge about innovation management and social processes. Moreover, the programme is also of interest to talented students with a background in the social sciences (for example: economics, economics geography, entrepreneurship or business) that have demonstrated an affiliation with science and technology. Innovation Sciences students may want to pursue a career in high-level consultancy, strategic research and development (R&D) management, policymaking, entrepreneurship,or academic research.
Study subjects Students are taking courses throughout the whole first year and the beginning of the second year. In the first year, students will be trained in innovation theories and social science research methods to teach them how to analyse complex innovation processes and develop innovation strategies. There are four kinds of courses in the programme: conceptualising innovation through theories and models, innovation research methods, innovation practices and elective courses.
Course objectives As an Innovation Sciences student you will learn to analyse various stages of the innovation process in order to develop effective strategies that promote the development and implementation of innovation. This requires insight in the nature of technological change and the conditions of knowledge production. Furthermore it requires an understanding of the societal uptake of innovations and the roles of networks of firms, research institutes, governments and other stakeholders.
