Our students, lecturers, and researchers work together in small teams on real-life cases. They test their innovative ideas in practice. Our courses incorporate trends and developments in all industries and at a national as well as an international level.

Educational concept: Design-Based Education

With Design-Based Education (DBE) turns ideas into practical solutions. In small, inter-disciplinary teams, students work on assignments from actual clients. This is the best way to prepare for your future field. This way of working places a strong focus on the personal development of our students; they are responsible for their own learning path. Our new educational concept will be used in 32 of our courses, from September 2018 onwards. It will also be implemented in the remaining study programmes in the years to come.
