This full-time programme’s practical projects and assignments will prepare you for professional craftsmanship and entrepreneurship. It includes lessons in design, subject theory, and classes on your chosen area so that you can expand your creativity and gain greater skills in your chosen area. As the programme focuses on entrepreneurship, you will gain more insight into your position on the labour market.
