Generating sustainable energy, the introduction of self-driving cars, the protection of your online privacy or the responsible development of artificial intelligence ... technology has a big impact on everyone and everything. That is why there is a great need for engineers who are able to combine their technical knowledge with insight into the social consequences of technology. The programme Technische Bestuurskunde has been developed from this question. In the first place you will be trained as an engineer. You learn mathematical modeling, so you can estimate the effects of technological innovations. You also get courses such as economics, law and organization & management. This is a very strong combination at a time when almost all major issues are technological in nature, but can not be solved with technology alone.
The Bachelor programme Technische Bestuurskunde is taught in Dutch. Foreign student who wish to enroll in this bachelor programme must have a working knowledge of the Dutch language. Dutch language courses are offered by the Institute of Technology & Communication.
