Below you will find the configurations and accompanying prices (inclusive of 3 years of warranty, 2 years for Apple devices) for the academic year 2021-2022.

It is mandatory to use legal software for school purposes.

 

Laptops

Depending on the software needs of the study programme, a laptop model is suggested for each study programme. By bundling all Howest purchases, an advantageous package of hardware and services is composed. Of course, each student is free to buy his/her own laptop or software through another sales channel.

Photo camera

The Online & Offline Graphic Design study programme requires the purchase of a photo camera. The camera below meets the requirements and should be bought on your own initiative from a supplier of your choice.

Sony A6000 + 16-50mm Powerzoom or Sony A6100 + 16-50mm Powerzoom (guide price: € 800)*.

Sony A6000 + 16-50mm Powerzoom (guide price: €500, currently end of series) or Sony A6100 + 16-50mm Powerzoom (guide price: € 800), as the successor to the Sony A6000, this camera of course also meets the requirements. A good camera is essential when you choose the 'Design Focus' course unit (starting from semester 2). If you already have a decent (reflex) camera, you can submit your camera for approval to our photography lecturer bram.de.muynck@howest.be

The aforementioned photo cameras cannot be bought through Howest at the moment, but the Sony A6100 + 16-50mm Powerzoom is available in most photography and electro stores.

Frequently asked question

howest illustraties_Nog vragen- cropped.png

As a student at Howest, you need a laptop for any study programme you take. Especially for this purpose, the Howest laptop project was launched, ensuring that you can buy a laptop of the best quality at an affordable price. Through this list, you will find an answer to frequently asked questions.

No answer to your question? Do not hesitate and contact us!

1. Why is a laptop mandatory? What are the advantages?

With a laptop you have access to your course materials, internet and presentations anytime, anywhere.  You can work on your assignments at home, in your student accommodation or at school because you have all the necessary software on your device. With your laptop you can easily follow up the electronic communication sent by your lecturers via email or our learning platform.

2. Am I obliged to buy a laptop via the laptop project?

No, no one is obliged to buy a device through the laptop project. It is a non-binding offer. You may already have a device and maybe it can also be used in your study programme if the device is still sufficiently performing.  Explore the market, compare offers and prices, be critical. 

Questions?  Send us a message using the contact form or visit the laptop project stand at one of our info days. We would be happy to help you further.

3. How does the laptop project work? What is the advantage for me?

Howest works together with external partners for the offer of the devices.  In consultation with the university of applied sciences, the external partner looks for devices supplied by top brands that can be used for at least 3 years in the chosen study programme. 
For this reason, we ask our external partners to also offer a 3-year corporate warranty on the devices. 

  • HP: You get 3 years next business day on-site warranty for HP through our external partner howest.academicshop.eu. In practice, this means that if you bring your laptop for a warranty repair to the external partner's service centre and that the device will be repaired the next working day.  If a repair takes longer than expected, you will be entitled to a replacement device.
  • APPLE: You get a 3-year warranty and telephone support for Apple (Apple Custom Applecare for Education). Repairs are effected in one of the Lab9 stores (Kortrijk, Bruges). If the repair takes longer, you are entitled to a replacement device.
4. Where can I order my laptop?
5. How can I contact the supplier?
6. Important information about Wi-Fi within Howest

As from September 2019, all devices in Howest shall have a Wi-Fi card that supports 5 Ghz frequency. At the purchase of the device, look for a Wi-Fi card that mentions ac and 2x2. Wi-Fi cards that only mention 802.11bg will have poor performance on our wireless network.  You do not need to buy a new device. You can buy a USB Wi-Fi dongle on e.g. https://howest.academicshop.be/accessoires/wifi-usb.html
