Real-world application.

This approach to learning is centred on the investigation of complex, real-world problems, and their applying solutions with the direct use of theory learned in class.

Industry and company needs change fast meaning that the class projects vary over time, and from course to course. Specific class projects can’t be guaranteed, so during the first week of the program, you will be briefed on the project identified for the course and what the outcomes are.

Expert teachers who care about you as an individual.

We limit class sizes so that teachers are able to give undivided support and feedback to each student. You’ll be given valuable perspective and expert input the entire time.

“In my iX course we will not only focus on theoretical ideologies but also how these ideas can be used in the real world. I'm looking forward to guiding new students through the exciting world of software engineering  and seeing their abilities grow to become self-sufficient. The best way to get better at a skill is to practice, and what better way to practice than working for a company applying the skills that you have just learned?”
