  • Structure

    Put theory into practice from the word “go!” via an intense mix of projects, practical enterprise labs and other hands-on courses. All taught in English to boost your international credentials! Learn to analyse and solve problems while designing, developing and even making new electronic devices. 

    If you specialise in Hardware, you’ll learn to design, develop and produce embedded hardware, design electrical circuits from scratch and develop your own web applications and mobile solutions.  

    More into Software? You’ll create your own applications while building analogue and digital circuits, programming micro-controllers and immersing yourself in the world of (smart) electronics.  

    All this hard work will culminate in an (international) final internship and bachelor’s thesis in your third year.

  • In practice

    Your cross-curricular project work will bring you into close contact with the business world. You’ll progress rapidly from simple electronics projects in phase 1 to more complex projects in an industrial and technological context in phase 2. Culminating in your (international) internship and bachelor's thesis in your final semester.  

    Your internship is your chance to bring all your skills together and apply them to a real-world customer case. You will also profit from a dedicated university lecturer who will follow up on your internship and bachelor's thesis. 

    International Week 
    Don’t miss our annual International Week at Campus De Nayer where renowned international guest speakers present the latest technological developments from around the globe.
