Engineers are problem solvers par excellence. They develop intelligent technological solutions that make everyday life easier or safer or they find solutions for complex problems, such as energy efficient production or waste recycling. In each of these projects, engineers take into account preconditions such as sustainability, price, quality and regulation. This bachelor's programme will teach you to tackle technological challenges in a critical and methodical way. You will acquire a broad scientific basis, and get the opportunity to put your knowledge into practice.
What is the programme all about?
Graduates in Engineering Technology need to be all-rounders who are multi-deployable. Therefore, a polyvalent and generic engineering training is crucial. The renewed programme offers a solid engineering basis which you can always fall back on.
The programme offers a broad introduction to mathematics, chemistry, physics and biology. In addition, you will immerse yourself in typical engineering disciplines such as computer science, graphic techniques and project skills. You will learn to think and act critically. You will also develop skills in the field of management, communication and teamwork.
The bachelor’s programme is based on four pillars, which run like a thread throughout the entire programme:
The emphasis on these pillars shifts as you complete the bachelor’s programme. In the first stage, the focus mainly lies on the basic sciences in Engineering and Science. From the second stage, you will choose a specialisation and focus more on a domain-specific technology from your specialisation. Finally, in the third stage, you will choose an option within your specialisation where you can further explore a specific sub-domain.
You will be given many opportunities to put your knowledge into practice, both within the faculty and the business world. You will come into contact with concrete technological problems in all kinds of domains: food, energy, health care, environment ... In every project, you will learn to take into account preconditions such as sustainability, quality and regulations. This bachelor’s programme will give you a good idea on all possible career possibilities and which engineer you want to become.
