As an international student you will develop excellent skills in the chosen study field and you will develop your abilities to interact effectively with people from other cultures and countries. All this will qualify you to stand an international career in Engineering or ICT in the Brainport Region.
The Bachelor-Master structure
The FTB Bachelor programmes at Fontys University of Applied Sciences are practical-based university programmes. Over a period of four years, you develop excellent professional skills and acquire the knowledge you need for your future profession. After obtaining your degree, you may bear the title Bachelor of Science (BSc). The majority of graduated bachelors join the labour market especially in the Brainport Region, but further study in a master programme - either in the Netherlands or abroad – is another possibility.
