This is Howest!

"To boldly go where no one has gone before!"

Lode De Geyter, algemeen directeur Howest

Captain Kirk, The Enterprise, Star trek, a boy’s dream I have pursued throughout my career.

Seeing past obstacles and creating opportunities. Giving chances. Developing talents. Inspiring people to realize their full potential, raising the bar, daring people to do things differently.

Anticipate the future, that is what we envisage with our Howest Community. We call ourselves atypical,  we come with an edge. We are open to people who draw outside the lines, who think out-of-the-box, we encourage entrepreneurial awareness and provide scope for  entrepreneurship.

Serve, empower, care: These are our values, the beacons that guide us, that have penetrated the very capillaries of our community. They are part of the Howest DNA.

The student and his study programme are central in our vision on education. Society and the broad work field are our touchstone. Creating social added value is our purpose.
