Inholland UniversityBy Asian Correspondent Aug 22, 2013 9:13PM UTC
Inholland University operates eight campuses across the Netherlands and specializes in applied sciences. It’s an ambitious institute with 32,000 students from more than 110 nations enrolled. The university offers roughly 90 bachelor’s degree programs covering everything from technology to economics.
This is an ideal destination for international students to earn their undergraduate credentials in applied sciences. With students spread across a network of campuses, they enjoy small classrooms and personalized instruction. At the same time, they also enjoy the benefits and world-class facilities that large universities can offer.
Coursework and instructors at Inholland emphasize practical, hands-on training. Many of the teachers work on applied projects through the university, which means they have a strong grasp on the ways that theory and practice interact. The university also engages in occupation-related research so that it can deliver curriculum and solutions that are relevant to 21st-century society.
Inholland also maintains a comprehensive network of industry contacts and collaborates with other schools and universities both locally and internationally. All of these factors combine to create fantastic employment opportunities for graduates.
Dozens of science-related bachelor’s degrees are available through Inholland. The following are two particular highlights:
The Aeronautical Engineering department operates a bachelor’s degree program in tandem with Delft University of Technology (TU Delft). The aircraft and space industries are broad fields, and students in this program learn about engineering in general. This is backed by in-depth instruction on the processes involved with constructing aircraft and their components.
Students learn a great deal about the maintenance and manufacturing industries. Needless to say, aeronautical engineering is a complex field, and engineers have ample opportunity to harness their own creativity. The knowledge they acquire applies to everything from aircraft and wind turbine design to the generation of sustainable energy.
Information Technology engineers are a unique addition to the pantheon of engineering disciplines. Rather than working with moving parts and complex physical systems, they concern themselves with the lifeblood of organizations: information. Inholland University’s bachelor’s degree program in Information Technology teaches students how to keep modern business in motion. In short, they keep that lifeblood pumping.
The IT program is structured along the same guidelines as an engineering course, covering mathematics, statistics, computer hardware, Internet programming, database management, software development, communication skills and several other subject areas. Students can also enrol in Cisco certification programs if they so choose. Year three of this four-year program includes a real-world work placement.
