Integrate technologies in system and product development

In 1½ years, you will be ready to integrate various technologies and knowledge in connection with the development of technical systems and products. You’ll get the knowledge and the tools to become a competent and creative product developer who knows how to apply specialist knowledge across disciplines.

The direct path to further education for production technologists, IT technologists, installers, automation technologists and energy technologists.

The teaching is largely project-orientated, and we have close contact with the business community.

Be the strong, interdisciplinary link

You will bridge the gap between the various parties involved in the product development process. On our programme, we work across disciplines which will increase and strengthen your own knowledge and give you insight into other areas of expertise. It will provide you with excellent competencies, which you can use directly in developing and constructing technical systems and products.

Go abroad as part of your degree

You can study, join a summer school or take your internship abroad during the programme.


The programme combines product development and technological integration with a line of specialisation that builds upon your AP degree.

We offer three lines of specialisation:
IT and electronics – specialisation for IT Network and Electronic technologists
Product development, design and production – specialisation for production technologists
Installation, automation and energy – specialisation for electricians, automation technologists and energy technologists

Depending on your work experience record, you might be allowed to choose a different line of specialisation to what your AP degree gives you immediate access to. This is subject to individual assessment.
