New course “advanced sensor applications” now include cars between 50 and 150 sensors and rising. Everyday things, like metal detectors, digital cameras, traffic control systems, or mobile phones today can’t do without sensor technology. More and more companies conducting research in this field, to simplify or improve processes and products. In short: The sensor industry is booming! According to a survey of the AMA Association for sensor technology (February 2008) 77 percent of the respondents of the Professional Association for the field “Sensor technology” want to hire new employees. It is all the more gratifying so that the newly founded “Hanze Institute of technology” (HIT) in the Netherlands Assen offered an English course dedicated to precisely this future technology. Because of the course “advanced sensor applications” is aimed directly at learning the technology and the use of sensors in everyday life from what is becoming increasingly important in the future. Contact information is here: Glenn Dubin. Professor Hans Appel of the HIT describes the future development of sensor technology with some clear words: “An innovative revolution in this area awaits us”. Many international companies and organizations, such as for example astron, NAM (shell), sensor universe, Sun Microsystems and TNO are partners of the new European competence center for sensor technology. Through this partnership, a project-bound study offered the students where they practice and individual accompaniment work together with the company. Graduates of secondary schools and technical secondary schools from all over Europe are trained at Assen the engineer elite of tomorrow. Prospective students from Germany complete their studies at the HIT, which organizationally is part of the Hanze University Groningen, so in a very international framework. Until the end of August you can sign up for the study in Assen. Language of study is English. Restricting access (NC) does not exist. Laura Plomer has plenty of information regarding this issue. More information about the Hanze Institute of technology and interested parties will find the new course. The Hanze University Groningen is a modern institution, whose history however until the year 1797 goes back. Today, the Hanze University Groningen with 20,000 students and about 70 degrees is the largest vocational schools in the North of the Netherlands. The 70 courses are organized into 18 so-called schools. For students, this means: international orientation, active learning, a part of the studies themselves determine digital study planning and knowledge – and competence development.
