Did you know, …

… that you will work on practical projects and can even win prizes for them?

During the course, you’ll work on specific projects, often in cooperation with companies and you’ll have the chance to take part in student competitions. You can also choose from various modules and further specialise as part of a practical project.

Did you know, …

… that companies may wish to offer you a job even during your course?

Companies are often very interested in working with our students and securing them for various projects or a degree thesis. We therefore organise a ‘Partner & Recruiting Day’ each year. Since the course is work-friendly, you will also have time to pursue a relevant part-time job.

Did you know, …

… that you can spend the 3rd or 4th semester studying abroad?

Our course gives you the opportunity to spend a semester or write your degree thesis at one of our partner universities in Belgium, Bosnia Herzegovina, Germany, Finland, Great Britain, Lithuania, Switzerland, Slovenia, Spain or even in Australia.

Did you know, …

… that the course is work-friendly?

During the first year of your course, you will have lessons from Wednesday to Friday, during the 3rd semester on Thursdays only and then at the start of the 4th semester, you have a five week study block. This enables you to combine your studies, especially the integrated project and degree thesis, with a part-time job. The weekend is free of lessons and the proportion of e-learning is low.
