Hackathons

Learning by rote does not keep you up to speed with technological developments. Practical workshops keep you learning in a community – bouncing ideas off fellow students and learning organically.

Mentoring

Our teaching staff does not think of themselves as the ones who possess valuable knowledge that they want to simply pass on to you. Instead, they focus on enabling you to have meaningful, first-hand experiences – empowering you to master challenging projects with the ability to think creatively, collaborate and communicate effectively.
