We won’t be satisfied with letting you become a skilled software engineer, interaction designer or product manager who will easily find a well-paid job. For us, that is nice to have but not nearly enough. We want you to develop the mindset of a Digital Pioneer. A Digital Pioneer is someone who possesses excellent skills and deep knowledge in their field of expertise, and who is also eager to explore the as-yet unknown possibilities of the digital transformation our society is experiencing.
Whether by skillfully crafting beautiful software products that substantially improve the lives of their users, or by founding companies that disrupt whole industries – Digital Pioneers build what matters in unexplored areas and strive to make a positive difference with their work. That is why we believe in the importance of our Science, Technology & Society Program (STS).
Through the STS seminars and workshops, you will study the works of authors, historians and artists; discuss fundamental philosophical, sociological and ethical concepts; and playfully engage in the experience of theater, music and art performance. This will provide you with the opportunity to improve your critical thinking and creative abilities, to broaden your horizons, and to gain a deep understanding of the challenges our society faces today.
