Hands-on experience in the working world

As a university of applied sciences, we place great value on you obtaining practical experience during your studies. This is realized by a high proportion of teaching in laboratories and through research and development projects.

Master's thesis in the company

Your written master's thesis also includes a practical part, usually carried out in a company. By doing so, you will gain an insight into your future working environment and will thus be on safe ground in your job. 

The manager of tomorrow

As a manager who is responsible for staff, you will have great opportunities for personal and professional development. That is why we as a faculty attach great importance to your education as a future manager by our module "Human Resources and Corporate Management".
