The connected world is reflected in our student population itself which is international and outward-looking. It also means that societal problems, research and education should not be separated. For this reason, almost all researchers teach in both the bachelor and master programmes, facilitating the adoption of the latest research insights in all our programmes.
The following traits form the cornerstones of our bachelor and master education.
Focus on the core principles and skill
Students explore the critical academic, theoretical, practical, and technological aspects of their field of study in a balanced programme
By means of an inspiring and challenging education
Our programmes are research-driven and offer challenging assignments in many areas. Many students further complement their regular programs by means of the departmental Honours Program, and/or various extra-curricular activities (such as robotics and hacking contests).
Oriented to responsible science
We teach students to conduct good science (through the proper use of scientific methods, accurately reporting results, fair use of the literature, etc.) and reflect on our responsibility towards each other (the impact of algorithms and software on sustainability, social fairness, privacy, safety, and transparency).
In an open and inclusive study environment
Both students and staff members are committed to embrace diversity of ethnicity, culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation, wealth, disability, and nationality. Our staff members promote student engagement and an open culture and attitude.
