Course description Can you imagine yourself developing the technology for an autonomous car, or designing an hexacopter for traffic management applications? Then the Applied Computer Science programme is ideal for you. Applied Computer Science involves everything regarding embedded systems, i.e. designing and programming systems that contain a computer or microcontroller which is not visible on the outside. Electronics is usually a part of the embedded system, and quite of ten mechatronics are involved too. Think of an autonomous robot, a drone, a smart thermostat, an RFID access system or an intelligent baby monitor. First basic skills will be taught, during lectures, workshops and also in projects. The focus is on technical as well as on social and communication subjects. Technical subjects that will be taught are analogue and digital hardware, design and engineering. Programming will also be part of the course. Hardware combined with software makes everything work! Social and communicative aspects are trained in presentations, interviews and much group work in projects. The projects concern small technical problems to be solved by a group of students.

About the institution

Department School of Life Science, Engineering & Design
Information about the institution Saxion University of Applied Sciences is one of the larger institutions of higher education in the Netherlands, with over 23,000 students (and still growing!). Saxion University has a rich history – its roots can be traced back to the 1875. A merger of two educational institutions, the Hogeschool Enschede and Hogeschool Ijselland, in 1998 paved the way for Saxion University in its present form. This merger enabled Saxion to build further on its strong position in Dutch higher education and since then Saxion University has come to be recognised as an important centre of expertise at regional, national and international level. We are very proud of our diverse student body. Our international student population tops 2,500 students with a total of 55 different nationalities. Many of Saxion's full-time educational courses are already conducted in English, with more being added each year. Our ‘international classrooms’ are made up of a mix of students from all over the world. In this way we provide you with a truly multi-cultural experience in which you can compare experiences with and learn from fellow students of different backgrounds and nationalities.
