Campus De Nayer
Campus De Nayer is the technology campus par excellence. The campus is located between Antwerp and Brussels and close to Mechelen, just next to the bike highway, within walking distance of the train station and easily accessible by car. The campus has a rich tradition in technology programmes (Thomas More) and engineering programmes (KU Leuven) with a reputation that extends far beyond Belgium. Add to that 12,000 square metres of high-tech laboratories, a car technology centre and a welding centre, and you will immediately understand why so many young people with a talent for technology have chosen De Nayer.
Every year, more than 230 companies visit the job fair to recruit students in their final year of studies and to offer bachelor’s and master's thesis projects to students in their second year.
The high-tech laboratories of the Product Certification Centre Labo De Nayer and Lascentrum non-profit associations are also located on the De Nayer campus.
Because of its excellent accessibility and modern facilities, the campus is regularly used by companies and organisations for refresher courses, training days, congresses, study days, product presentations, exams and more.
