Counsils and Committees

Open Calls

Within the study program of Information Engineering Technology, we are often looking for collaboration with industry and other institutes:

  • Master thesis: your company or institute formulates a well-described computer-related problem. If your proposal is accepted and selected by a student, the student will work on the project 3 days/week on location during a single semester (for a total of 540 hours). The initial project proposal should be around 1 page, and internal IT support / coaching of the student is recommended.
  • Bachelor thesis and Interdisciplinary Final Project: our students develop a medium-sized software solution at the university. The developed application can be a proof-of-concept, an internal tool or a first version of a production-ready application. At the end of the semester, the software together with both technical and non-technical documentation will be delivered.
  • Internship: during the summer period, students who finished their bachelor can do an internship of 4 or 6 weeks. New proposals for internships are always welcome!

More information can be found on our website (in Dutch).

Within the university and the research institute, we are often looking for new members to extend our team. If you are holder of a Master Degree in engineering and/or computer science, and have a strong interest in research, don't hesitate to contact me to discuss the possibilities.
