IT & Design

A smartwatch, a self-watering plant or a solar-powered smartphone: do these innovations sound like music to your ears? The IT & Design area of interest opens up a world of opportunities. You learn how to apply technology to make daily life a little bit better.

Not only does this require technical knowledge of hardware and software, but also people knowledge. What are the needs of those who will be using the app you’ve designed?
By exploring this in a functional, safe and creative way, you ensure the perfect link between your idea and the ultimate user.

We are organising a number of activities to help you with your study choice. The degree programmes IT & Design provide shared information, as well as separately for each degree programme. Do you still need more help? Please go to our study choice page.
