Program description

Information and Communication Technology

Watching a series on Netflix, ordering something on Amazon, sending a payment request through PayPal, chatting on WhatsApp or checking in with your public transport card: all this is possible thanks to IT!

IT is usually associated with programming or system management. But it is so much more than that. Brainstorm about a good software solution for a customer, come up with a cloud solution, build a new application, collect and interpret data to advise a company or work on cyber security. The possibilities are endless, whether you are interested in the business side or the technical side. During the programme, we help you discover which direction is best for you and teach you everything on the basis of the latest technologies.

Out-of-the-box with your team

In addition to developing your own skills, you frequently work in multidisciplinary teams. We do this using the agile methodology. This is not: working according to that one described perfect approach. This is: meeting the needs of your client and creating an out-of-the-box solution quickly, flexibly and together with your team. Basically, the same thing you will later be doing for a company. In doing so, you do not only look at your projects, but also your own development as a professional.

Would you like to work in one of today’s most creative and trendsetting sectors? Do you get a kick out of technology, innovation, creativity, and would you like to invent, develop or program things? Then choose Information and Communication Technology at HZ!
