What Information Technology offers

IT has become an integral part of our society and new programmes and applications are being developed every day. With a degree in Information Technology, you can be a part of this innovation. You could be behind the development of a new online payment system or develop a mobile app that will be used by millions! With this programme, you can develop your interest in software and computers, and explore areas such as software, cyber security, games, web technology, company networks, databases and programming languages. The NHL Stenden campus in Emmen is home to some exciting state-of-the-art technology, so you get to work with the latest developments. And you’ll love the personal atmosphere on the campus, with your own study coach guiding you through your studies.  

Information Technology in practice   

You work on assignments from real companies during the course, collaborating in small groups and drawing on the skills and experience of lecturers and professionals in information technology. You could be analysing a company’s IT set up, looking into its database management and cyber security, developing a mobile app or working on a software application. This method of working (Design-Based Education) means you learn to draw on feedback to adapt your ideas and become more flexible, while also developing your teamwork and leadership skills. It means you get hands-on experience of what it’s like to research and understand a company’s IT set up and develop solutions based on the needs of the company and the users.
