Foundation: 1842

Mission: Our mission is to support and professionalize teachers and communication practitioners in a science and technology context. This enables them to design, support and manage complex educational and communicational processes and products.

Vision: We seek to develop competencies and expertise by continuously linking theory and practice in both our research and education. Our combined masters program provides BSc and MSc students with theoretical and methodological knowledge of both fields, which they learn to apply to real-world education and communication problems. Our conviction is that the interrelated domains of science education and communication can mutually benefit from close interaction and a continuous exchange of insights.

Ranks by Subject areas/categories

We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world. If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal.
