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

Trends in ICT systems are really your thing. You enjoy tackling challenging problems and using your creativity to do so. You’re up for studying in English, the language of IT!

The first phase of this programme offers a solid ICT basis. You will learn various programming languages and dig deeper into configuring, installing and  managing computers. In the second phase, you will choose from three expert tracks: Applied Artificial Intelligence, Application Development and Security, Systems & Services.

If you choose the Artificial Intelligence track, you’ll go well beyond the basics, exploring a variety of different AI programs and applications. Do you prefer developing web applications and mobile applications? Then choose Application Development! The SS&S track will give you in-depth expertise about ICT, servers, networks and associated security. You’ll immerse yourself in setting up all kinds of advanced services, both locally and in the cloud.

In the final phase, you’ll be fully equipped for the real business world. Your bachelor’s thesis and (international) internship are key. You will also take a course in Entrepreneurship, in which you and your team draw up a business plan for a project of your choice. Yes, you can!

What makes this programme unique is the focus on cross-curricular project work assigned by mentors from the corporate world. Practice makes perfect, and you’ll get plenty of it here!
