Broad bachelor’s programme HBO-ICT
The ICT world is known for its extremely rapid developments. FSICT aims at preparing ICT students in the best possible way. Therefore, we constructed a broad educational programme combining sound practical and basic theoretical knowledge and skills and the opportunity to specialise in various sub-domains of ICT. Our HBO-ICT programme keys in on the multifaceted aspect of the ICT work field. It offers divergent study programmes, divided into four main study programmes and several specialisations. During their first year, students choose their main study programme. In the second year they choose one of the specialisations. The overview below shows when a student makes choices for main study programme and specialisation.
