The programme is designed in conjunction with the industry to ensure that you develop the skills employers are seeking.
There are two components to the bachelor's degree in Information Technology at Inholland: the major and the specialisation. The major is the core of the programme and will account for half of your studies. This is where you will acquire your general professional knowledge and skills. The specialisation allows you to tailor the programme your personal ambitions.
The first year is divided into four terms, which are organised around central themes, such as web creation or application building. In this way you become acquainted with the broad IT field.
