To secure the practical relevance of the program and make good use of the students’ prior knowledge in engineering, courses will include collaborations between students, practitioners and lecturers with both business and technology background. These activities will further train the students to work in diverse settings and ensure that the knowledge and skills learned are applicable in practice.

All courses are taught in English.

Half time option for practitioners

Although no prior work experience is required to enter the programme it is encouraged. For applicants already working in industrial and engineering sectors the programme can under certain circumstances be studied at half speed over two years as an alternative to one year full-time studies. In such case an individual study plan must be applied for upon acceptance to the programme. Please note that the programme still runs on campus during the day-time so even at half speed you would need to be present regularly and have a job that can offer enough flexibility during this period. For more information on this option contact the Programme Director, see this link. Opens in new window.
