Would you like to work in one of the most innovative and leading sectors of this moment? And do you get a kick out of technology, innovation, creativity and would you like to invent, develop or program things? Then choose for Information and Communication Technology at HZ!
We live in a connected world in which physical objects are massively linked to the internet. Think of a security camera that sends a message to your smartphone when a person walks through your garden. Or AI (artificial intelligence), where a self-learning algorithm learns whether it is safe to cross a street. IT is the field that makes these developments possible and creates them.
IT often involves programming and system management. But it is so much more than that. Brainstorming about a good software solution for a customer, coming up with a cloud solution, building a new application, collecting and interpreting data to advise a company or tackling cyber security. The possibilities are endless. Whether you want to develop in the direction of the business side or the technical side. In the course of your studies we will help you to discover which direction suits you best and we teach you everything about the latest technologies and trends.

The term consultant or advisor includes quite a few positions, such as Information Analyst, Functional Designer and ERP/CRM consultant. As a consultant, you are the bridge between the IT requirements of an organisation and fulfilling these requirements with innovative IT solutions. You chart all the requirements and work together with the development teams that build these solutions, towards the final design. After several years of work experience, you can progress to senior consultant.
As a data engineer, you process large amounts of data from different types of sources (big data) and convert this data into usable insights for a company. This is done using special software and by writing algorithms to retrieve, structure and analyse data. You do not only have a good understanding of IT but are also able to convert data into solid advice.
As a software engineer, you develop software, applying techniques from computer science in the design, development and testing. You carry out programme tests and maintain and optimise the performance of the software. You sometimes also draft the programme specifications and application structure.
As a Cloud engineer you help build (and manage) secure cloud environments. This helps organisations to transform their own (in-house) servers into closed and/or open cloud solutions, for example.
