Why Fontys?

What can you expect from us?

The Fontys Technology & Business Bachelors have a focus on higher professional university training based on a strong theoretical foundation. Teaching is done by using different methods: theory and practical classes, lectures, laboratory assignments but also doing applied science projects and self-study activities. For all programs you can have an influence on your own content and planning of your study. A study counsellor will help you in making the right decisions.

What do we expect from you?

As a future engineer or IT-expert you are able to work in teams. In other words: you are a real team-player. Moreover you need to understand how to use high-tech knowledge in real-time situations. That’s why theory classes are always supported by practical assignments. As a student you also search for additional knowledge and skills to improve your own development. This requires a high sense of responsibility, a high level of analytical thinking and leadership qualities. It goes without saying that your communication skills and level of English are excellent. At secondary school your grades for mathematics and physics need to be excellent.Physics is only relevant for some of the FTB programs.
