The course in Information Technology sheds light on areas such as software, games, web technology, company networks, databases and programming languages. You will be trained as a specialist in these areas over the course of the four-year programme.
- First Year
Introduction to the industry
The first year is designed to provide you with a solid foundation in your chosen field. In small groups you’ll work on practical assignments, which may involve anything from designing an online store to creating a multimedia presentation for a company to developing an all-new game. Gradually, you will discover all the specialisations available, so you can pursue the major that best meets your needs and interests.
- Second Year
More in-depth study
In your second year, you will develop more focused and detailed knowledge of areas such as programming languages and databases. This year you begin your major, as well as participating in a short internship.
- Third Year
Internship and practical experience
During this year, you will continue to put your knowledge and experience into practice and half of the year is spend on an internship in the Netherlands or another country of your choice. This will help you to gain a broad understanding of the various career options in your field.
- Final Year
In your fourth year, you will be taking on a six-month, practical final-year project at a business or organisation. This might even end up being your future employer!
In addition to taking technical classes, you will also learn a number of practical skills, such as managing project-based work and end-user communication. In the Fabrication Laboratory (Stenden MyConcept), you will learn to use innovative high-tech equipment like 3D printers, home automation and robotics. These will help you design and implement just about anything and everything.
