It happens, because we make it happen; that is what we believe. We strive to make the impossible possible by looking beyond the borders of our own professional fields. We encourage our students and staff every day to come up with innovative solutions to practical issues. We do this by collaborating with industry professionals. Students, lecturers, researchers, and industry professionals come together in workshops. This way, we prepare our students to become enterprising and resourceful professionals, who look beyond their own professional field with an interdisciplinary approach.
