Bachelor of Engineering Technology

This bachelor’s programme will teach you to tackle technological challenges in a critical and methodical way. You will acquire a broad scientific basis, and get the opportunity to put your knowledge into practice.

About the programme

Graduates in Engineering Technology need to be all-rounders who are multi-deployable. Therefore, a polyvalent and generic engineering training is crucial. The renewed programme offers a solid engineering basis which you can always fall back on.

The programme offers a broad introduction to mathematics, chemistry, physics and biology. In addition, you will immerse yourself in typical engineering disciplines such as computer science, graphic techniques and project skills. You will learn to think and act critically. You will also develop skills in the field of management, communication and teamwork.

The academic bachelor's programme consists of 3 programme stages. The entire programme covers 180 ECTS. The first bachelor's stage covers generic engineering training for all students. It consists of basic sciences, introductions to various technologies, a number of broadening courses and the projects of the Engineering Experience. The generic engineering training partly continues in the second and third bachelor's stage. In the second stage of the programme, you select a specialisation. In the third bachelor's stage, you choose a specific option within your specialisation.

Programme strengths

  • From the start of the programme, you will put your knowledge into practice in labs. The campus has an extensive and modern lab infrastructure with equipment on an industrial scale. You will also get to know the industry better through company visits and guest lectures from professionals in the field. The master's thesis in the last year is often linked to a company internship at home or abroad.
  • Group T Leuven Campus offers bachelor's and master's programmes to students of more than 87 different nationalities. This allows you to study in a truly international environment. Collaborating with other foreign students is also a learning experience and adds value to your study programme and diploma.
  • Group T Leuven Campus is a breeding ground for ambitious student projects. The first Belgian solar car was built here and in 2019, the eighth Solar Team even became world champion in Australia with their self-built solar-powered racing car. The Faculty of Engineering Technology also has several other student teams who are, among other things, building an electric racing car, developing 3D printers for medical applications or making Leuven climate neutral in 2030.

Master's programmes

With an academic bachelor's degree, you have a broad general knowledge, but you are not yet ready for the labour market. After completing your bachelor, your chosen specialisation gives direct access to the subsequent master’s programme. The specialisation and the option you choose during the bachelor’s programme determine the master’s programmes you may proceed to.

  • Master in Chemical Engineering Technology
  • Master in Biochemical Engineering Technology
  • Master in Electromechanical Engineering Technology
  • Master in Electronics and ICT Engineering Technology
Career perspectives

After graduation, many doors will open for you on the job market. A a graduated master in Engineering Technology, you are focused on practical implementation and you can solve concrete questions from the technological world based on your technical and scientific knowledge. Your diploma offers you a promising future, with access to varied range of job functions in many sectors.
