Learning outcomes

  1. Initiating and managing Using a 'helicopter view' and a wide market orientation, students detect and survey tasks and potential and projects for society. Students are able to formulate preconditions, requirements and goals. Students are able to describe, monitor and manage the process.
  2. Designing The design can be a plan, model or advice, as well as a spatial or technological design. Students make the design based on a set programme of requirements, research various solutions and variants, and make a balanced choice.
  3. Specifying Students make a specification related to the formulation of ambitions, preconditions and feasibilities, so the product can be steered. In accordance with the requirements set, students further elaborate a design. These requirements are specific to the professional group and encompass the quality requirements of the product to be submitted.
  4. Realising Students execute a design by preparing, maintaining, monitoring and steering its realisation. 
  5. Managing Students create a management and maintenance plan in order to safeguard the realised quality levels.
  6. Monitoring, testing and evaluating Student are able to monitor and assess the submitted results objectively. In addition, students are able to make and implement adjustments as well as proposals for improvement.

  8. Communicating and collaborating Students are able to transfer relevant professional knowledge to the field, colleagues and potential target groups (customers, clients, stakeholders). Students are able to communicate with internal and external parties in a manner suited to the target audience. 'Communication' here covers the entire spectrum across which information is received, conveyed and shared. Students are focused on collaboration and constructive harmonisation with stakeholders and target groups.
