The curriculum is based on our Design Based Education principles. This means you will work on practical assignments in small groups and can pursue your own interests while working on real-life cases. We are well-connected with many professional companies where students can do their internships, such as Microsoft, Google, IBM, ING Group and ABN AMRO.
This course opens up a world of opportunities. Information Technology graduates get to choose where they want to work.
