Of my time in Belgium, the thing that stands out the most is my internship with TE Connectivity (now Commscope). Also the international aspect was great.

Bachelor in engineering

All bachelor programmes at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel are taught in Dutch , except for the language programmes, which are taught in the corresponding languages.
Candidates who wish to register for a Dutch language bachelor programme will need to demonstrate a good command of Dutch , both written and spoken.

  • Objectives
    The study of Applied Sciences and Engineering involves a bachelor training of 180 credits followed by a master training of 120 credits. The bachelor degree gives access to the master that leads to the title of Engineer in Applied Sciences. The bachelor degree also gives access to the masters in engineering at other universities, both domestic and foreign. The main objective of the Bachelor in Applied Sciences and Engineering at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel is to provide the students with a broad, polyvalent scientific and technological basis, allowing them to start the Master in Applied Sciences and Engineering with a specialization of their choice. The final objective of the complete study is to form Engineers in Applied Sciences who have a multidiscplinary technical knowledge combined with a thorough and scientifically based knowledge in their specialization. To obtain this objective, the concept of a broad bachelor training was developed with four possible specializations (one of which has to be chosen at the beginning of the third year), i.e. civil construction, chemistry and materials, electronics and computer sciences, and electro-mechanical engineering. As such, the students receive the required basic knowledge in the main fields of Engineering through the broad common core of the training, and also get a fundamental basis in the chosen specialization through a series of specific courses. In addition to providing knowledge, a further aim is to deliver a set of skills (communication, research, problem solving, teamwork, …) and attitudes (life long learning, attention for ethical, social and economic aspects, environmental awareness,….) that are of great importance for the following master training and professional career.
