Course Project

Real-world application is a process that allows our students to apply what they have learned in the classroom to real-world problems. This problem-based learning is an instructional method of hands-on active learning centred on the investigation of complex, real-world problems, and the application of the classroom theory to the resolution of these problems.

Industry and company needs change fast. This means that the class projects vary over time, and from course to course. Specific class projects cannot be guaranteed, so during the first week of the program, you will be briefed on the project identified for the course and what the outcomes are.

Expert teachers who care about you as an individual.

We limit class sizes and empower teachers to give individualized support and feedback to every student. You’ll gain invaluable perspective, and a mentor who will advise you throughout the program.
