Questions about Fall 2020 semester (Covid-19)?
No worries, we've got you covered!

You’re passionate about smart electronics. You’re inquisitive and enjoy disassembling electronic devices to discover how they work. You want to immerse yourself in the high-tech world of electronics.

This programme will keep you on your toes. Theory is immediately put into practice. Expect a variety of projects and practice enterprise labs from the very start. This way, you will learn to analyse and solve problems while designing, developing and even producing new electronic devices.

Both your theoretical and hands-on classes will be taught fully in English, giving you the tools to learn the language in a practical way - an important asset in the sector!

Want to specialise in Hardware? Then, you will learn to design, develop and produce your own embedded hardware in our unique Embedded Factory. You will design electrical circuits from scratch and develop your own hardware, web applications and mobile solutions. Discover how professional audio and video are created.

Are you more into Software? Learn to create your own applications. You will build analogue and digital circuits, gain experience in programming micro-controllers and get a general view of the world of electronics. The world of smart electronics will be at your fingertips!

All of this hard work will culminate in an (international) final traineeship and Bachelor’s thesis in the third year.
