About LS&T

You and tomorrow's world!

Today's technology may no longer be useful by tomorrow. Subjects like food, health, safety, energy sources and the environment will continue to challenge Life Sciences technologists to come up with practical solutions that may contribute to a society that is increasingly economy driven.


Can technology achieve that? Certainly, according to us at LS&T Leeuwarden. Technology enables us to continue to live on the same piece of earth, with more and more people. Technology can therefore never be rounded off. We train our students to become solution-orientated professionals; people who believe that we can always make our lives safer, healthier, more comfortable, and more environmentally friendly, and that we can save more energy. Some are interested in the whole process, whereas others prefer to focus on a specific topic. They are people who believe that we should continue to work on the balance between man, the industry and society. That's why we need applied technology. Technology is a tool, but in the end, it's all about mankind and society.


Technology knows many different forms, and we therefore offer an extensive and well-considered study programme, in which living organisms and chemical processes form the main theme. LS&T Leeuwarden works in close collaboration with the business world, consumers, research institutes and authorities. These joint efforts allow LS&T Leeuwarden to train students to become well-educated technologists with a broad perspective on life. They are self-willed, versatile individuals who look at today's world through the eyes of tomorrow.
