Embrace TEC: Technology + Entrepreneurship + Creativity is a minor program for students ready to find their purpose or bring their business idea to life. During this minor, you discover and work on your purpose and learn how to become a self-directed professional that has the skills to become a frontrunner in the working field.

During these twenty power-packed weeks of raw action, you solve meaningful challenges, design real prototypes, take field trips, connect with industry experts, and work in multi-cultural, cross-disciplinary teams. Besides the group and individual work, you have a lot of coaching hours with our coaching team.

All 2nd and 3rd year students are welcome.
