Troeven van de opleiding

Mix van theorie en praktijk

Nieuwe technologieën beheersen doe je niet enkel door naar gepassioneerde docenten te luisteren. Daarom worden de theorielessen steeds gekoppeld aan praktijklabo’s.

Sterke link met het werkveld

Bedrijven worden al betrokken vanaf het tweede jaar. MCT heeft zijn eigen onderzoekslab rond AI, 5G en XR, wat veel projecten oplevert met de bedrijven. Daarnaast zijn er gastprofessoren en studiebezoeken. Een van de hoogtepunten is onze reis naar Silicon Valley (Howest Goes USA).

Werk- en stagezekerheid

Door de nauwe samenwerking met de bedrijfswereld ben je na 2,5 jaar helemaal klaar om met een voorsprong op stage te gaan. Ook dan word je weer aangenaam verrast: er zijn 300 tot 500 stageplaatsen beschikbaar voor 60 tot 80 stagiairs. Je hoeft dus zelf niet op zoek!

High-tech projectwerk

Projecten staan centraal in je MCT-studies. De studenten zijn unaniem: door projecten tot een goed einde te brengen, leer je zoveel meer en word je een professional met een voorsprong. Met ieder project verbeter je je technologiekennis en soft skills en tank je vertrouwen voor de toekomst.

Persoonlijke begeleiding

Onze docenten zijn aanspreekbaar tijdens de lessen. Ze zijn je coach en collega tijdens de projectweken. Bij ons geen overvolle aula’s, maar kleinere klasgroepen waar iedere student tot zijn recht komt.

The Level

Hét grote pluspunt bij Howest is de persoonlijke aanpak. De lectoren kennen elke student en volgen je nauw op. De gebouwen van Howest hebben bovendien een ziel. Op de bruisende campussen heerst een gemoedelijke sfeer onder studenten en lectoren. Ook bij het administratief personeel en Stuvo staat de deur altijd open.

Aan deze hogeschool leer je niet enkel in boeken, je stapt ook de wereld in en oefent in de praktijk. De uitgebreide stages bereiden je voor op de arbeidsmarkt. Na de opleiding ben je klaar voor het echte werk of kan je verder studeren als je dat wil.

In the case you buy a laptop through Howest, you can look here which laptop is recommended by your course. In the case you already own a laptop or wish to buy a new one yourself, it needs to qualify to the same specifications.

Would you like to study abroad for a semester? Or are you interested in an international internship? You can! You will discover all the opportunities to go abroad within Howest on this page. During your studies, we will work together to make your international adventure a reality!

No. Our team applies unique teaching methods, adapted to your prior knowledge. The only thing that is important is that you are present in class and practice the things that you are struggling with. Since Multimedia and Creative Technologies (MCT) trains you to become a professional who can realize real-life IT projects, doing nothing for weeks and only starting to study intensely in the last weeks before the exams is not a good option. Therefore, attending classes and updating your practical skills every week are very important.

The keywords are "Creative with Technology" and "Multimedia" Technology.
'Agile' and creative use of technology is deeply rooted in the DNA of the programme. In other words: MCT people are trained to creatively implement new technology in companies that quickly switch to methods such as SCRUM. You will therefore find that MCTers perform more than average in start-ups, scale-outs, innovative SMEs and innovation departments of large companies.

"Multimedia" technology refers to the fact that the MCTer uses technology to develop the multimedia interfaces of the future, such as a smart watch interface that also responds to your voice and actions or an Augmented Reality interface that integrates AI.

We believe that our students are 'inventors', 'technical creatives' ('the IoT Generation'). The ultimate goal of the Multimedia and Creative Technologies program is the realization of projects. Not one day a week or in 'a profession like there are more', but during an intense period of 5 to 6 weeks, in which you first try out the latest technology alone before taking it on in a group to bring it to life. During the project weeks you only focus on executing your project and you gradually discover your strengths and weaknesses. From the second year, you will receive team assignments from small and large companies that want to bring the 'MCT Silicon Valley spirit' into their company. They will ask your group to convert new technologies into a working proof of concept project (https://mct.be/projecten/).

In the first year you have about 30 percent theory. Then, exceptionally, you will be sitting together with 90 to 150 other students. Most classes, however, are in groups of 20 to 28 students. The further in the training, the more this is the case. During the project weeks you also work closely together in groups of three to four students.
