The 240 ECTS Sensor Technology programme consists of four years: one introductory year and a three-year main phase. Each year is composed of two semesters. Students are taught through theoretical classes and a wide range of practical labs. Project group work is an intrinsic part of each semester, whereby small groups of students work together on tasks. In addition to classroom examinations, designing working prototypes, demonstrations and presentations are crucial to accomplishing each semester. The possibilities seem endless. There is a range of about 500 different sensors that students may use to implement in their project work. A practical instructor is present every afternoon to support creative ideas. Also, students are allowed to work independently in our biology, chemistry and electronics/ICT labs. Students are allowed to use the 3D printers, laser cutter, PCB milling machine and DNA analysers.
The Sensor Technology programme creates professionals with a great understanding of ICT and electronics. All graduates have a large amount of technical knowledge, broad professional skills and entrepreneurial experience, by the time the programme has been completed. The programme revolves around the utilisation of existing sensors. Smart cities, smart mobility, smart industry, smart phones, smart watches … Everywhere, sensors and their data are helping. Also in health care, sports, agriculture and the energy sector. Even in places you don’t expect. During the programme students participate in applied research through the application of sensors in order to develop and improve existing appliances, products and services, for instance in the fields of healthcare, energy, leisure and robotics.
