ICT & Technology

In this track, you will be working with software for technical systems that people do not readily recognise as computers. Think, for example, of software in an MRI scanner in a hospital, the engine management system in the new BMW, the automation of the production process of a beer brewery, your navigation system, or environmental monitoring systems for the World Wildlife Fund.

ICT & Technology has 2 focus areas:

  • Creating software for embedded systems: the software is part of the product itself, for example when controlling a 3D printer.
  • Industrial automation: for example, setting up a fully automatic assembly line, where robots turn individual components into a ready-made end product.

After this programme, you can work as a software engineer, technical designer, ICT architect or consultant in the embedded systems, technical information systems or industrial automation sector.
