IT is usually associated with programming or system management. But it is so much more than that. Brainstorm about a good software solution for a customer, come up with a cloud solution, build a new application, collect and interpret data to advise a company or work on cyber security. The possibilities are endless, whether you are interested in the business side or the technical side. During the programme, we help you discover which direction is best for you and teach you everything on the basis of the latest technologies.
Out-of-the-box with your team
In addition to developing your own skills, you frequently work in multidisciplinary teams. We do this using the agile methodology. This is not: working according to that one described perfect approach. This is: meeting the needs of your client and creating an out-of-the-box solution quickly, flexibly and together with your team. Basically, the same thing you will later be doing for a company. In doing so, you do not only look at your projects, but also your own development as a professional.

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.
