The School of Engineering focuses on preparing students for achievement in business and developing specific working methods aimed at small and medium-sized enterprises.

Courses have a broad technical knowledge base to equip students with engineering skills and stimulate an entrepreneurial spirit. The educational programmes are unique in that they also provide knowledge from topic areas other than technology, such as leadership, communication, business and ecology.
