First basic skills will be taught, in lessons and also in projects. The lessons consist of technical, social and communication subjects. Technical subjects that will be taught are analogue and digital hardware, design and engineering. Programming will also be part of the course. Hardware and software make everything work! Social and communicative aspects are trained in presentations, interviews and much group work in projects. The projects concern small technical problems to be solved by a group of students.

Students learn much about the product they design but also about the multidiscipline character of the process. A project example is “measuring an analogue heartbeat and presenting it wireless on the other side of the country”.
