Full track


PION - Advanced (60 ECTS)

Your postgraduate programme (Advanced) consists of an innovation internship (40 credits) and an personal study programme with courses comprising at least 20 credits. You put together your own programme based on the competences you wish to develop. In addition, you can choose from courses across all participating universities.

One of the main benefits of the programme is that it includes so much more than technical courses. It also pays attention to cross-cutting fields.

Whereas the advanced courses allow you to specialise in a specific technical field, the cross-cutting courses are aimed at developing your personal, entrepreneurial and innovation skills.
