IT Innovations

About the course

You will be working on an innovative project. In different stages, in cooperation with companies, you will explore the possibilities of new technology and work on its applications. The project will be executed partly at the company’s location and partly at the Innovation Lab at Windesheim. You will work in multidisciplinary teams of students with various expertise.


During this semester various workshops and lectures will be organized, either on location or at Windesheim. Visiting congresses and technology fairs will be a good way to acquire extra knowledge. The exchange programme IT Innovations starts every year in autumn and spring.

The projects

Various innovative projects are possible, like using brand new technology to optimize business processes, developing software for new operating systems or using new technology or new applications. Doing research, building proofs of concept and prototypes will be a substantial part of most projects.


Credits back home

As an international exchange student at Windesheim, you get study credits that can count towards the qualification you are studying for back home. So coming to Windesheim doesn’t have to mean extending your studies. You make a ‘learning agreement’ covering your stay.
