Bachelor ICT & Technology

If you look around you, software is everywhere. Nowadays you will find software almost everywhere. Within our Bachelor programme ICT & Technology we focus on writing software which has a direct or indirect impact on our lives, whether be it in the form of game consoles, smart phones, IoT, digital TV, the internet, in-car networks, planes, navigation or (factory) automation.

You will learn about the complete software lifecycle:

  • Translate the requirements from future users into high level and detailed level software design
  • Implement the software design with a programming language (e.g. in C#, C++)
  • Test the code and write user manuals
  • Advice all stakeholders about the best alternatives based on application oriented research
  • We will train you to become an expert in embedded software development. This programme leads to the International Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree in Information & Communication Technology (CROHO: HBO-ICT). With your knowledge you will be able to find a job very easily in a technology-oriented, international company in the Netherlands.
