Tesla Minor

Bringing together science, business, and society

Do you want to: 

• Apply your scientific and academic background in business and society;

• Work on a project for a real client;

• Develop your professional skills;

• And engage in intensive training in different environments? 

Then the Tesla minor might be something for you! 

Tackling real world problems

Tesla is a minor programme (30 ECTS) for Master's students from science faculties (UvA or other university). During the programme, a selected group of students works on a complex challenge for a company or societal organisation. This allows them to utilise science and their academic background in a project on the interface of science, business and society.

Out of the academic comfort zone 

The Tesla programme has the objective to move students out of their academic comfort zone and engage them in different types of real challenges. They learn how to manage a project, communicate in different situations, and create value in ‘non-scientific settings’.
