ATLAS is a master-level Honours Programme with a focus on Analytical Technology. The programme is meant for talented students that are enrolled in two-year master programmes at Dutch Universities. The master track may be focussed on analytical chemistry or students may create an analytical-chemistry focussed track within or on top of another MSc programme. ATLAS aims to bring together ambitious, enthusiastic industrial and academic professionals with motivated and talented ATLAS students and alumni. ATLAS strives to create a talent-and-expertise network that helps address major societal challenges.
